Michael Jackson's Death Anniversary Approaches

an article about Michael Jackson.

The unexpected death of mega pop star, Michael Jackson, two years ago stunned the world. On Saturday, the anniversary of the King of Pop's death, will once again arrive reopening grief for his family and his many fans around the world. An outcry of public support was given to his family, and especially for his 3 young children.

Michael Jackson began his career as an extremely young but gifted child, later becoming the biggest selling artist of all time in the history of the music industry. He redefined the art form of the music video, thus driving his career to even greater heights. He drove pop music to higher levels, and broke down many walls for African Americans. He was the first African-American ever played on the revolutionary music channel, MTV.

In 2009, before the time of his tragic death, he had been preparing for a set of sold-out concert dates that were to take place later in London. The pop star died before this tour could take place. Many music critics and fans saw this as a comeback tour for Jackson. They wondered if he could be able to preform 50 dates, but reports have stated that the star passed all medical exams, and received a clean bill of health prior to his death on June 25.

Concert promoters filmed rehearsal footage that was later used to create a documentary, appropriately called, This Is It. This film allowed fans one more rare glimpse into the pop star's world, and showed him where he appeared most comfortable, on stage.

Jackson left behind 3 children, Prince, Paris, and the youngest child who is nicknamed Blanket. Before their father's death, the children were rarely seen in public, and their faces were largely a mystery to the public. Approximately, a month before Michael died, Prince and Paris were photographed without the usual masks that usually covered their faces.

There is a sense of profound mystery that has surrounded the pop star's death. Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson's personal doctor has yet to be convicted of charges that include giving the 50-year old lethal drugs that should not be administered outside of a hospital setting. The time line and events surrounding his death are unclear and seem to change daily.

Though his life may have been tragically cut short, he will live on through his music, his art form, and 3 children.

Fans will no doubt, want to remember the pop star as the vibrant, creative man, that left the world in such a tragic fashion.

Thanks for writing a nice article on the one and only King of Pop, Michael J. Jackson. Its been two years and you are right, lots of people still have not come to terms with his sudden death. Will the truth ever come out - well as we all know - when it comes to truth reporting Michael Jackson always received the short end of the stick, so I have many doubts that we will ever find out the real truth. Though a lot of the distorted truth has been reported about MJ throughout his live - nobody as yet has the gall to report the real facts. Like they said - Positive MJ news does not sell. With that being said I would like to thank you again for keeping it real. It made a pleasant change.

Thanks everyone for the lovely comments!
