Happy Birthday, Michael Jackson

It's not so long ago when a boy was born.  The eighth of ten children to an African American working-class family , in Gary, Indiana, an industrial suburb of Chicago.[]

With an interview with Oprah, he admitted been abused physically and emotionally, learning his talents the hard way.  He's been trained of singing and dancing instead of playing outside their house, enjoying his childhood.  Then Jackson 5 was born.  One of the songs that I could remember was "Ben" which speculations says Jackson dedicated to a mouse he learned to called his friend when abuse by his father  Joe took place.  He rose to stardom.  He became an icon with his "bitin" pants and white socks, distinctive black sequin jacket and golf glove.  He "Heal(ed) the World" with his songs, made us realize how we should change ourselves first in his "Man in the Mirror", learned to deny things with "Billie Jean", learned how to fall inlove with "I Just Can't Stop Loving You", pays tribute to AIDS victims such as his friend Ryan White. Then the rest is (as they say), a history.


I just wanted to relive his music, his influence as an artist, and what he has become from an abused kid.  Today is supposedly Michael Jackson's 52nd birthday.  
You'll remain the King of Pop in our hearts.  I love you, man...
