TRIBUTE TO MICHAEL JACKSON – A KING, NOW AND ALWAYS

TRIBUTE TO MICHAEL JACKSON – A KING, NOW AND ALWAYS

You could not hear any of his songs and not move, even just a little. He had an obvious passion for singing beautiful and engaging songs, brimming with meaningful lyrics. Michael Jackson is undoubtedly the King of Pop.

Michael Jackson

He gave us music that is best described, for lack of a better word, as timeless. His music and unrivaled beats will always be a reference point in the history of music. And oh! Did I forget to mention his moves? As a kid I was in awe of his dance. So fluid and effortless! I had of course tried to do the moonwalk several times and it was an epic fail. But did that in any way deter my love for him? Not at all!

One great thing that I got to learn from Michael Jackson is courage. He consistently showed us that he was not afraid to confront pressing societal issues, a major one being racial discrimination which was prevalent at the time and is still very much in existence around the world today.

From classics like “Heal the World”, “Beat it”, “Black or White”, to other great songs like “Smooth Criminal”, “Bad”, “Thriller” just to mention a few, it is safe to say that almost every one of Michael Jackson’s songs was a hit! This is no small feat.

While he was alive, he was a living legend. It is so sad that we could not witness his comeback. His death was a huge blow to the world, we all felt it. The King of Pop was no more. The vacuum he left in the world, especially in the music scene has not been filled till this day.

One thing is sure, the name Michael Jackson is one that has a tremendous impact and unbeatable achievements. He died at the age of 50 and in that time, he had accomplished boundless feats that no other artist has achieved till date. He deserves all the accolades he gets. He was, and always will be, the King of Pop!
