Remembering Michael Jackson…

“I’ll always be Peter Pan in my heart.” – Michael Jackson

In truth I have rarely thought much about Michael Jackson in the past years. I know he was in the news for his eccentric behavior. I never believed he did all those things to children that he was accused of, just another way for people to tarnish his name & make a quick buck. I just never felt that a man that was that determined to help other people and the world would do the things those others claimed.

“I have spent my entire life helping millions of children across the world. I would never harm a child.” – Michael Jackson

I grew up in the eighties listening to his music. I still to this day watch the ‘Thriller’ music video every year on Halloween. His career spanned such a long time that I share my love of his music with my mother as well. She was born in 1958, the same year as Michael so she also grew up listening to him and the Jackson family. It is always amazing to me that one person can have this much of an effect on the entire world. But then again there are many “one persons” that have affected us here on Earth it just usually isn’t a pop star.

“In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.” - Michael Jackson

It is hard for me to believe that he is gone. The most I can hope for is that he went peacefully to whatever place he loved most. I hope that people remember him for all the good things he did & what he brought to all of us musically. Just think, we may have not have had many of the artists around right now without Michael Jackson. I am sure he is in good hands now and I hope that his children are well loved and live great lives. He will be missed my millions. It is still so surreal... I can’t believe he is gone.

“We have lost one of the greatest icons of all time. He forever set the bar for entertainers all around the world.” - Singer, Fergie

“Michael Jackson’s accomplished so much that there’s not even words to explain what he’s done for urban and pop music. Every artist that I personally know has been influenced by him. The world has lost one of the great entertainers who shaped many generations and will continue to for years to come.” Singer, Akon

“From the beginning of my career, he was my idol in show business… I had his poster on my wall.” Singer, Celine Dion

“Dazed in the studio. A major strand of our cultural DNA has left us. RIP MJ… I think we’ll morn his loss as well as the loss of ourselves as children listening to ‘Thriller’ on the record player.” Singer, John Mayer

“he has been an inspiration to multiple generations, and I will always cherish the moments I shared with him on stage and all of the things I learned about music from him and the time we spent together. My heart goes out to his family and loved ones.” Singer, Justin Timberlake

“Michael forever changed the world of music and entertainment and I will always remember him for his kind and sweet spirit.” - Singer, JC Chasez
