About Michael <3

Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 –
June 25, 2009) was an
American recording artist,
entertainer and
businessman . Often
referred to as the King of
Pop , or by his initials MJ ,
Jackson is recognized
as the most successful
entertainer of all time by
Guinness World Records .
His unparalleled
contributions to music,
dance, and fashion, along
with a much-publicized
personal life, made him a
global figure in popular
culture for over four
decades. The eighth child
of the Jackson family , he
debuted on the
professional music scene
along with his brothers as
a member of The Jackson
5 in 1964, and began his
solo career in 1971.
In the early 1980s, Jackson
became a dominant figure
in popular music . The
music videos for his songs,
including those of "Beat
It ", "Billie Jean ", and
"Thriller ", were credited
with breaking down racial
barriers and transforming
the medium into an art
form and promotional tool.
The popularity of these
videos helped to bring the
then relatively new
television channel MTV to
fame. With videos such as
"Black or White " and
"Scream" he continued to
innovate the medium
throughout the 1990s, as
well as forging a
reputation as a touring
solo artist. Through stage
and video performances,
Jackson popularized a
number of complicated
dance techniques, such as
the robot, and the
moonwalk, to which he
gave the name. His
distinctive sound and style
has influenced numerous
hip hop , post-disco ,
contemporary R&B , pop
and rock artists.
