When I hear classic hits such as "Man In The Mirror", "The Way You Love Me", and "This Is It", I think of the "King Of Pop", Michael Jackson. Like his idol, Sam Cooke, he used his music the bring people together and a social message in regards to what's happening in the world today.
In his short life, Michael has accomplished a lot from playing sold-out venues worldwide, also he's made a name for himself by way of his humanitarian efforts, and establishing a foundation to help help underprivileged children. As child in the "'70's", I grew up listening to his music on the radio; as well, watching the the 1978 motion picture, "The Wiz", and the Broadway musical in Buffalo, New York when I was a little girl.
The more I learn about this multi-talented entertainer, I realize there are things about Michael I didn't know. Despite what the media says about him, he was a kind and caring individual who I feel was badly misunderstood over the years.
To this day, I still miss him like crazy and if he were alive today, I would tell how much he meant us as his loyal fans.
