Michael Jackson RIP ~ 1958 – 2009

Posted in A Day in the Life, Celebrities, Obituaries | 2 Comments »

Today’s obituary for Michael Jackson is one that I definitely hadn’t expected to have to write yet, and most definitely, one that I am loathe to even begin. But fortunately, I’m a blogger, not a journalist, so I can create my Michael Jackson tribute however I see fit.

Besides, there are not enough words to express what the world is feeling right now.

Instead, I’ll just feature one of my favorite songs sung by Michael Jackson: “Who’s Loving You”, which was recorded by The Jackson 5 when Michael was still a young pup. Whenever I hear this song, I am blown away by Michael’s musical gifts. No matter what name you could ever throw at me, to this day, I’ve never heard this kind of singing talent in anyone so young.

The world is in shock and mourning today because of Michael Jackson’s legacy as an entertainer. His music and performances have the power to move us, and touch us deeply. He was truly “The King of Pop”.

My sincere condolences to the family and loved ones of the Jackson Family.

    Hi Carla,
    Great post. This was the one celebrity death that took me more than 1 minute to recover from. It took me about a full day and a half! I’m just getting out of that stupor. I was really heartbroken about his death. One of my co-workers mentioned that Michael Jackson was the Elvis of our generation. So true.

    Hi Alice,
    I agree with you that Michael Jackson’s sudden death was quite jarring to the senses. I can’t help but think of oh so many of his songs that we grew up singing and dancing to. He was a part of our lives, even if we never knew him, and we are grieving in our own way. I guess MJ is the Elvis of our generation, although he was also big while Elvis was still alive and kicking too. MJ’s body of work spans years, and it’s hard to accept that the voice that was around for so long, is no longer here. I still can’t believe it.
