I can’t say that I haven’t made my fair share of jokes when he re-shaped his face, because look at him back then! I had no doubts that he would have grown into a fine looking Black man! Since I grew up with the Jackson Five and it was the first concert I was allowed to attend, I wanted to show my sincere appreciation for his contribution to music by posting one classic performance by him (and his brothers). I also want to send my very sincere condolences to his family for their loss. I’ll let the other “hollyweird” bloggers “pretend” to be overly saddened by this. For me– he was a cool musical spirit that was in pain for most of his life (largely due to his “audience, media and Paparazzi”). I personally will never forget his music. God Bless you, Michael. As sudden as this news is, I am glad you are finally at peace! You will be missed.
