I know I wont be the first person to say this, and I surely will not be the last, but Michael Jackson was my childhood. To being born around “We are the World” to growing up listening to the Thriller Album on vinyl. There is not an early childhood memory that I have that you could not directly attach a Michael Jackson record too.
To this day, I love to be on camera, I love to hear my own voice, I love to entertain. All of that stems from my enjoyment of wishing I was a performer like Michael. I remember sitting back and taking in the music video bad and just wanting to be as cool. The feeling I got every time I watched Michael Live from Budapest was nothing short of electric. Doing the “Wanna Be Startin Somethin Dance” to trying to figure out how the hell he bent that way in Smooth Criminal. Many hours leaning on walls and shelves hoping to figure it out. Learning how to moonwalk, socks first, then shoes later. Getting the snap kick down JUST right. The Tracks of his I would play during the good times, and the tracks he had that helped me through the bad, all intertwined to just become music I could live on. Loving and Fearing the video for “Thriller”, Digging “Leave me alone”, Getting excited to see “Moonwalker” Remembering Heal the World at the Superbowl and thinking NO ONE CAN TOP THIS, and they never have. Hearing “Man in the Mirror” and being old enough to understand it, thus making listening to it all the more meaningful. Listening to the Dangerous album given to me for my birthday NONSTOP. He always found a way to get my soul calm and my spirit high.
As with most 80s children ( though some like to pretend they didnt) I was expressive about my adoration. So much so, that when the tragic news hit, members of my family and close friends called me just to see if I knew, knowing the impact he had on me as a child. This is the same with most around the world, and together we all collectively show our love. For the most part, we all sigh, finally now… there is nothing to hate him for, nothing to think negatively on. From here on out, Michael will always be how we remembered him.
I am not going to go into how I felt about the negativity surrounding him, nor my stance on the situation. This is going to be only me saying,”Thank You” for being the kick start to the personality I have today and you will always be remembered around the world as such.
Rest In Peace
