Impact on Society
Michael Jackson impacted the world positively. However, he certainly did stir up some controversy, but I'm fan that believes that Michael grew up into this world without a childhood. Nevertheless, Michael's musical work certainly influenced many of the artist's that you hear today, and his music will live on for generations to come!
Born in Gary, Indiana on August 29, 1958 and died on June 25, 2009 of a cardiac arrest. He is known as the King of Pop because of his success as a singer, song writer, dancer, and music producer. His career started as a young boy, alongside his four siblings in the music group the Jackson 5.

Influence On Future Generations
Artists such as Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown, and Usher looked up to him. Admired his sound, dance moves, and when it came to music or performance. Up and coming artists will see his work as a phenomenal artist and be inspired to do the same.
"Music has been my outlet, my gift to all of the lovers of this world. Through it, my music, I know I will live forever."
Thanks to my mom and dad, I heard most of Michael Jackson's work when I was just a kiddo. Michael Jackson, is a favorable musician to me, and I will enjoy his music 'til the I die! My personal favorite track by him has to be, "Rock With You," like it's one of those jams that you have to stop what you're doing, just so you can dance!!! Michael Jackson influenced me positively with his musical creativity and his enthusiastic attitude!
Michael Jackson Goes Solo
Michael Jackson impressed the world with his debut solo album, 1979's
Off The Wall!
It featured a blend of pop and funk with hit tracks, "Don't Sop 'Til You Get Enough," “Rock With You” & “Off The Wall.”
His solo album received positive responses, winning 1 Grammy for 'Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough' and selling more than 20Million Copies World Wide!
Jackson began to branch out. Teaming up with rock legend Paul McCartney! They sang their duet, "The Girl Is Mine" This song also appeared on his next solo album
(1982), which generated seven top 1o hits and became the best-selling album in history!
I am happy to be alive.
I am happy to be who I am.
Thriller garnered 12 Grammy nominations, winning 8!
At the top of his career, Michael signed a $5 million endorsement deal with Pepsi. However, Michael was badly injured while filming the commercial for Pepsi in 1984, suffering burns to his face and scalp. Jackson had surgery to repair his injuries. This is believed to have begun experimenting with plastic surgery. His face especially his nose, would become dramatically altered in the coming years.
Kidding, this isn't Michael J.
'Bad' & 'Dangerous' Albums
Michael Jackson played concerts on the road for his third album (1987)
to promote his album. While successful,
was unable to duplicate the phenomenal sales of
1991, Jackson released,
featuring the hit,
'Black or White.'
In the video's final minutes, Jackson caused some controversy due to some sexual gestures and violent actions throughout his dance.
Thriller sold more than 65million copies world-wide.
Jackson was also known for his dance moves. This cat could dance! Like his moves won the ladies over! The dudes at the clubs would be there taking notes while Michael stole their girls. What a stud.
Rest In Peace
