Tribute to Michael Jackson
I know it's been a few days since Mike's passing, but I hadn't put anything up right away because I was really hurt about the news. Although the Jackson 5 and the beginning of MJ's solo career took place slightly before my generation, I was still fortunate enough to have been introduced to his music at a young age. I know Michael Jackson's music has effected so many people's lives in a positive way, but I can without a doubt say that if it weren't for him, I wouldn't have wanted to pursue a music career. Before hip-hop, I was a big MJ fan and always studied his dance moves and watched all his videos, as well as listened to all his albums. The first time I ever performed in front of an audience was in third grade at my school's halloween party where I performed Billie Jean at the lip sync contest (check my bio). I still have the pics and the video of that day. Maybe one day when I have the courage, I will post it lol. I ended up winning the contest. From that point on, I knew that this was what I wanted to do. Eventually I found Hip-Hop.
Here are the links to some of my favorite MJ videos including Beat It, Billie Jean, Leave Me Alone, Thriller, and Rock With You
R.I.P Michael Jackson...forever the King of Pop
