Remembering MJ on his 53rd birthday

August 29, 1958: for many, it was the day music was born.
In the loving memory of Michael Joseph Jackson. The King of Pop! Happy 53rd Birthday! Rest in Peace. We thank you for bringing your fantastic music into our lives.
Michael Jackson with his stop-on-a-dime dance moves and sensual soprano influenced generations of musicians. The King of Pop stood for much more than pop greatness or tabloid weirdness. One of entertainment's greatest icons, he was a ridiculously gifted, equally troubled genius who kept us captivated at his most dazzling and his most appaling. Jackson had announced a series of comeback concerts at London's O2 arena before he passed away on June 25, 2009.
