Remembering Michael Jackson (1958-2009)

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.

    Gosh, my girl, its tough trying to pick the favorite out of so many fantastic choices but I think “I’ll Be There!” is my favorite (uh, no), its “Whose Loving You!” (wait wait), here is the real deal:

    “The Smooth Criminal” was “Dangerous,” such a “Pretty Young Thing” that he gave me “Butterflies!” He was definitely “Gone To Soon” and I “Never Can Say Goodbye” to the “Man In The Mirror!” “Whatever Happens” at the “Break of Dawn” leaves me “Speechless” and “I Wanna Be Startin’ Something.” “I’ll Be There” to “Beat It” and “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough.” Its “Human Nature” to “Keep the Faith” “When You Are My Life.” I won’t “Cry,” I won’t be “Bad,” I will “Rock With You” to that “Jam” “Thriller” so that you “Don’t Walk Away.” You will always “Remember the Time” and I’ll always remember “The Way You Make Me Feel.”

    My favorite moment of all times was seeing Michael surprise James Brown on the BET Awards show, not sure the year, but everyone who watched it knows what I’m talking about! Love and Miss You Michael!!
