R.I.P. Michael Jackson

I know, I'm a few days late...

But Michael Jackson's death was a shocker. I was on Facebook and some of my peeps were already posting that it had happened while others were saying that it was a hoax. Fair enough, I mean he did lead a very unconventional life.

Whatever anyone's feeling about Michael Jackson, the world still lost an amazing entertainer. I put him in the category of celebrities like Elvis Presley and Judy Garland, who gave everything when they performed until the performer simply took over and the person got lost. The King of Pop is dead, folks. Let's focus on everything he contributed to the music world.

Aside from Thriller, which will always be a classic, this is my favorite Michael Jackson video:

And this is my favorite MJ song. This is a powerful video that I found on YouTube. Hit the full-screen option and the quality is still pretty good:

We were at the beach this week when the news broke. Pretty shocking.

The Thriller album songs still take me back to middle school. =)
