Immortal MJ

4351-the-essential-michael-jackson

The impact of MJ’s sudden death to me is similar to that of Princess Diana in 1997. Heartwrenching and unbelievable.

I loved MJ as a child and grew up with his music. My room was full of his posters. My books had MJ bookmarks. I had all his albums on tape and then on CD. I had all his movies on VHS and could recite Thriller by heart. Billie Jean is an all time favourite, The Way You Make Me Feel is a song all girls want guys to sing to them, Bad is rad, Black or White made a much needed statement, and Heal The World still makes me cry. And, he was the best dancer on the planet.

When I was 8 years old, MJ released his autobiography. It cost £9 at the time and I was desperate to have it. My pocket money was £1 a month; I saved for 9 months to have it; and then read it in 2 nights.

The man touched millions of people all around the world, redefined pop, and made history. He will never be forgotten.
