Michael Jackson ( 1958 - 2009 )  Category ( Musicians ) [suggest a correction]
 

Considered one of the top pop stars of all time, Michael Jackson has been known for various music recordings such as Bad and Dangerous. Numerous other songs would push Jackson into the fame that few will ever own as their own but his best selling album Thriller would be remembered as a Jackson hit that made music video history.

Michael Jackson is pop culture and in the eighties, there wasn’t anyone who could claim the kind of success that Michael Jackson possessed. His dance and moves were talked about throughout the world by every teenager that loved his music. The moonwalk and the robot became exciting moves that made it to the hip hop clubs throughout the country while his music blared through radios and car stereos around the globe.

Jackson would move on to claim thirteen Grammy Awards and the World Music Awards would later announce in 2006 that Michael Jackson sold over 750 million music units worldwide. With his charitable contributions and his active pursuits for humanitarian movements Jackson even earned a Nobel Peace Prize Nomination.

Michael Jackson was one of ten children and would later become the brother who would carry the early work of the Jackson Five to fame in 1966. It was in 1968 that the band gained the attention of Berry Gordy and Motown Records.

Michael Jackson took the lead with the Jackson Five until they departed Gordy’s Motown. After turning to CBS Records, Michael Jackson stepped out entirely on his own choosing a solo career that truly launched with his album Off the Wall. The album would later win Michael his first awards as a stand alone artist at the American Music Awards in 1980.

Michael Jackson’s career has been one of trials and tribulations covered with career highs and lows. He’s faced scrutiny with documentaries like Living with Michael Jackson while the media has followed his every move including a baby dangling incident when he held one of his children off of a balcony in Berlin.

Michael Jackson is said to be the biggest musical success since Elvis Presley which is ironic because Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis Presley’s only child, did marry Michael Jackson and remained his wife for two years. After the Presley-Jackson divorce, Jackson married Debbie Rowe who he later divorced in 1999.

Michael Jackson was accused of child molestation in 1993 and in 2003. Jackson was acquitted on all child molestation charges brought against him in 2005. Still, the stigma follows Michael Jackson who is a hands-on parent but ready to step back into the music business with a new entertainment project in the works. Unfortunately, his beloved California Neverland Ranch faces foreclosure while he remained at his rented home in Washington DC.

Michael died of suspected cardiac arrest on 25 June 2009. He was living in a rented home in Los Angeles when authorities were notified that Jackson was unresponsive. He was pronounced dead at the UCLA Medical Center after medical personnel tried to rescucitate him for an hour. He was preparing for a grueling schedule of over fifty concerts in an upcoming revival tour. Jackson leaves behind three young children and over $400 million in debt.
