Tribute to the King of Pop

Some of you have attempted to do his moonwalk,

Some have grabbed their croutch a few times,

Some of you have tried to imitate his glitter gloves,  

Some of you do his dance moves from his video anytime you hear his song....

This man is known as the

King of Pop

aka 

Micheal Jackson


Despite what your personal opinion may be on his up bringing, allegations made towards him, or his personal life. You cannot deny the he was an ENTERTAINER and you cannot deny that you never tried to do the moonwalk.

This man loved and was so passionate about his craft that he ONLY wanted perfection, which is what you call an ARTIST

He knew how many people were watching him, mimicking his moves, and listening to his music that he decided to educate people about what's going on in the world, yet still entertaining them.

For example, 

"Black and White",

"Man in the Mirror",
&
"We are the World."

With that being said, he cared about others so much that he donated, brought awareness, and sung about issues that some people didn't want to discuss. 

He dedicated his LIFE to his fans and he will forever be remembered!

His music is quality and timeless!
