Michael Jackson was a greatest singer and performer. I still remember when I used to listen “Beat it” song when I was a kid. I didn’t understand the song and it sounded more like Bire Bire (short form of common Nepali name Bir Bahadur) and I loved it very much. Although, I could never understand most of his songs in a first go (if there were no lyrics attached in the cover) I immensely enjoy the music and the amazing videos he created.
Michael Jackson as a person might not be that much appealing but it is very sad and shocking that the King of Pop is no longer among with us.
Numerous plastic surgeries and various events in his later part of his life imply that he has lived a tortured life. Now he is gone may his soul rest in peace.

Michael Jackson began his solo career in 1971. In the early 1980s, Jackson became a dominant figure in pop music. His music videos, including those of “Beat It”, “Billie Jean”, and “Thriller” from his 1982 album Thriller, are credited with breaking racial barriers and transforming the medium into an art form and promotional tool.
Jackson’s 1987 album Bad spawned the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 number-one singles “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You”, “Bad”, “The Way You Make Me Feel”, “Man in the Mirror”, and “Dirty Diana”, made the record of becoming the first album to have five number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Jackson used innovative techniques in his videos such as “Black or White” and “Scream” throughout the 1990s. His reputation as a touring solo artist soared. Through stage and video performances, Jackson popularized a number of complicated dance techniques. Jackson gave names to some of his dance moves – the robot and the moonwalk. His distinctive sound and style has also influenced numerous artists of various music genres.
