Michael Jackson Remembered
The most successful pop star, Michael Jackson died two years ago this month. The controversy surrounding his death continues as Dr. Conrad Murray will stand trial for what the Jackson family is calling a murder. The man who sold more than 750 million records and won more than 16 Grammy awards, is said to have had a massive drug addiction.
Michael Jackson fell to a prescription drug overdose with the legal blame yet to be decided. It was a tragic end for the King of Pop. Beginning in his childhood with his brothers in the Jackson Five, Michael’s talent stood out and quickly captured the ears and hearts of music lovers worldwide. Striking out on his own, he began a decade of unparalleled success, selling tens of millions of albums as he redefined what music — and entertainment — would be.
Not only did his pop/R&B fusions provide a new blueprint for the next thirty years of music, Jackson also singlehandedly created the modern music video with his intense and iconic “Thriller” short film. Michael jackson literally redefined how music videos and live concerts would be produced into the future.
Jackson kept the hit music videos coming over the years, with higher production quality and dynamic dance routines never before seen. Jackson created a catalog of shorts that blurred the line between commercial music promo and art film. There have been many performers trying to copy the King of Pop, none coming close, so as the second year of his death is here, remember where you were when your favorite MJ video or song was released or the first time you saw the video. Enjoy.
