Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough.

The first CD I’ve ever owned was his. Somewhere in my garage, buried deep beneath all the childhood memories are a collection of old Michael Jackson concerts and movies recorded on even older VHS tapes. I remember sitting and watching for hours, mimicking to the best of my abilities his every move. I failed miserably. Although under the urging of family, I still danced and sang his songs during parties. As a child, it was my introduction to music. Watching him perform was like watching a magician, and truth be told, he sort of was one. Who else could pull off some of the things he did?

He was an entertainer. The very best. And I learned the hard way that what he does can’t be replicated.

The reality is he affected our culture in ways very few have. Despite everything that went on outside of his career, his music is what mattered most to people. Describing him as unique would be more than an understatement. He was a transcendent, once-in-a-generation figure whose impact will always be felt.
