You can ask almost any music artist or dancer, “Who is one of your influences?” And no matter the genre, age, race or sex, most entertainers mention Michael Jackson at the top of their list.
Michael Jackson was, in my opinion, the best entertainer ever. Many fans would put on socks and attempt to moonwalk on the kitchen floor (Don’t act like I was the only one!) …People would wear white socks with penny loafers…People would practice his dance moves in the mirror…People would mock MJ’s sound “Yee hee…woooo” …People would wear one glove…People would wear a hat similar to the artist…I would always imagine I was the model strutting in my heels in the video, “The Way You Make Me Feel” video…I performed Thriller with thousands of MJ fans in the Thrill The World dance at L.A. Live in 2009. He was often imitated, but NEVER duplicated…Almost everyone wanted to be like Mike!
It’s been three years since his tragic, sudden death but radio stations all over still remember Michael Jackson. I was in shock when I heard the news. A friend text me, “Michael Jackson died.” I said yea, right. I would NOT believe the news. I started to google search, I watched CNN, and I was in shock! I could not believe the King of Pop had died.
He was preparing for his 2-week “This Is It” tour…and that was going to be it. But it never happened. Today we celebrate his life on television, radio stations, blogs and more. Michael Jackson definitely made his mark on this world. We Never Can Say Goodbye to Michael Jackson.
Michael Jackson is gone, but NEVER forgotten. Ever.
