"King of Pop" dead at 50

Grateful Jackson fans moved by memorial service

By SANDY COHEN, AP Entertainment Writer

LOS ANGELES -- Fans who were lucky enough to score tickets to Michael Jackson's memorial service Tuesday knew they were witnessing history. "It was amazing," said 35-year-old Gregory Vernon, who wore sunglasses as he walked solemnly out of Staples Center after the service. "We'll probably never see anything like it again."

Two stay-at-home moms from Arizona left their kids with their husbands and caught a last-minute flight to attend the memorial.

"Love him or hate him, this is the experience of a lifetime," said 38-year-old Carly Stoltenberg of Gilbert, Ariz. "This brought back his humanness."

Her friend Katey McPhearson said the service, like the man it memorialized, "totally transcended all races, all cultures, all ages."

Erma Trinidad of Irvine, Calif., was thrilled to be among the fans outside Staples, but she felt guilty for calling in sick to her job as a defense contractor.

"This is the most unprofessional I've ever been," said the 34-year-old Jackson fan.

Clarisse Que was feeling guilty, too. Instead of inviting her father to the memorial, she took a friend, Trinidad.

"I'm DVR-ing it for my dad," Que said.

Fans gathered outside Staples beforehand to snap photos of the scene, the giant sympathy card for Jackson and a tribute in red and white roses that read, "We love you Michael."

Guests were mostly orderly as they moved through metal detectors. Each was handed a program, submitted to a check of their purses or packages and shuffled into the giant arena. Once inside, audience members mostly remained seated and sedate.

But they also cheered the arrival of celebrities such as the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Kobe Bryant. Once the ceremony began, they stood and sang along with Mariah Carey and Trey Lorenz, who reprised their cover of the Jackson 5's "I'll Be There," and gave a standing ovation to Stevie Wonder, who sang George Michael's "They Won't Go When I Go."

The ceremony had all the trappings of any big Hollywood show, relying on Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich and veteran stage manager Valdez Flagg, who works on the Oscars and Grammys.

But plenty of people without tickets to enjoy the spectacle still made the pilgrimage downtown. Fans crowded the corner just outside the police perimeter, where more than 20 uniformed officers kept watch. Dozens of street vendors also were in the mix, selling buttons, posters, T-shirts, bouquets and glittery gloves.

"Show your love, get a glove," a woman shouted, carrying a cardboard box of spangled white gloves.

Single mom Tamanika Hines made her own Jackson tribute T-shirt and asked her son's father to watch the baby so she could come to the memorial. Her friend, Sharhon Tinsley, took the day off from her day care job to attend.

"Everyone knows this is my Michael Jackson day," she said.

Andrea Hernandez of Los Angeles said she was looking forward to seeing photos of Jackson at the memorial: "I like how he looked when he was younger."

The 21-year-old Hernandez was also excited that Jackson's body would be at the service, "only because it makes it that much more special. Spiritually ... he's here. But physically, it's just like, whoa. It makes it that much more powerful. It's something that I'll tell my kids about."

Norma Paramo of Fontana, Calif., said she used to sing "I'll Be There," translated into Spanish, to her aunt who raised her.

"He was a hero for me as I was growing up," Paramo said of Jackson. "When there was hard times, his music would make me feel happy. I could get lost in his music and forget about everything we were going through, and I'm going to miss him."

She wiped away tears as she said, "This will be closure for me."

Person: Officials discuss possible Jackson event

By ANTHONY MCCARTNEY, AP Entertainment Writer

LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles officials are holding closed-door talks about a possible event for Michael Jackson on Tuesday at a downtown arena, a person with knowledge of the situation said Thursday.

The event would take place at the Staples Center, home of the Los Angeles Lakers, said the person who wasn't authorized to speak publicly and requested anonymity.

It wasn't immediately clear if a funeral or a public memorial was being discussed for the entertainer - or both.

All talks are preliminary, and no decisions have been made, the person said.

Another site that has also been discussed for a Jackson tribute is the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

The discussions were held as the federal Drug Enforcement Administration joining the investigation into Jackson's death, and Jermaine Jackson said he would be "hurt" if toxicology reports showed his younger brother abused prescription drugs.

"In this business, the pressures and things that you go through, you never know what one turns to," Jermaine Jackson said in an interview on NBC's "Today" show.

The circumstances surrounding Jackson's death last week have become a federal issue, with the DEA asked to help police take a look at the pop star's doctors and possible drug use. Allegations have emerged that the 50-year-old entertainer had been consuming painkillers, sedatives and antidepressants.

Asked if he would be shocked or surprised if Michael's drug use was proven, Jermaine Jackson said, "I would be hurt." He said he had heard about prescription drug use in the 1980s when his brother was hurt in an accident filming a commercial but did not know if drug use was a possibility more recently.

"I don't know about these things, because I hate anything with drugs," he said, adding that it hurts the family for people to say things about drug use "because we don't know."

Psychic entertainer Uri Geller, a former Jackson confidant, said he tried to keep Jackson from abusing painkillers and other prescription drugs, but others in the singer's circle kept him supplied.

"When Michael asked for something, he got it. This was the great tragedy," Geller said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press from his suburban London home.

Jermaine Jackson said he would like Neverland Ranch to be his brother's final resting place. A person familiar with the situation who spoke on condition of anonymity told the AP that permits for a burial at Neverland could not be arranged in time.

Jermaine Jackson said in the "Today" interview that he wishes he had died instead of his younger brother, and that Michael was "a gift from Allah."

The Los Angeles Police Department asked the DEA to help in the probe, a law enforcement official in Washington told the AP on condition of anonymity because of the investigation's sensitivity.

While the investigation into the singer's death deepened, passionate Michael Jackson fans spent another day in an uneasy limbo, awaiting word from the King of Pop's camp about where and when a memorial service might be held for their hero - and if they're even invited.

Speculation about the potential location of a memorial has ricocheted from the Staples Center to the Los Angeles Coliseum to the Nokia Theater. Jackson family spokesman Ken Sunshine said a public memorial was in the works but that it wouldn't be at Neverland.

The elimination of the proposed Neverland memorial came as a blow to many Jackson fans who had already descended on the estate in the rolling hills near Santa Barbara with the hope of attending a public viewing.

"We're terribly disappointed," said Ida Barron, 44, who arrived with her husband Paul Barron, 56, intending to spend several days in a tent.

On the legal front, Jackson's 7-year-old will was filed Wednesday in a Los Angeles court, giving his entire estate to a family trust and naming his 79-year-old mother Katherine and his three children as beneficiaries. The will also estimates the value of his estate at more than $500 million.

Katherine Jackson was appointed the children's guardian, with entertainer Diana Ross, a longtime friend of Michael Jackson, named successor guardian if something happens to his mother. A court will ultimately decide who the children's legal guardian will be.

Jackson's lawyer John Branca and family friend John McClain, a music executive, were named in the will as co-executors of his estate. In a statement, they said the most important element of the will was Jackson's steadfast desire that his mother become the legal guardian for his children.

The will doesn't name father Joe Jackson to any position of authority in administering the estate. Also shut out is ex-wife Debbie Rowe, the mother of his two oldest children.

The will, dated July 7, 2002, gives the entire estate to the Michael Jackson Family Trust. Details of the trust will not be made public.

Jackson owns a 50 percent stake in the massive Sony-ATV Music Publishing Catalog, which includes music by the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Neil Diamond, Lady Gaga and the Jonas Brothers.

Jackson, who died June 25, left behind three children: son Michael Joseph Jr., known as Prince Michael, 12; daughter Paris Michael Katherine, 11; and son Prince Michael II, 7.

Rowe was the mother of the two oldest children; the youngest was born to a surrogate mother, who has never been identified.

Autopsy planned after Jackson's sudden death

LOS ANGELES -- Authorities are seeking to clear up the mystery surrounding Michael Jackson's death, including whether prescription drugs could have been a factor.

An autopsy was planned for Friday, though results weren't likely to be final until toxicology tests could be completed, a process that could take several days and sometimes weeks. However, if a cause can be determined by the autopsy, they will announce the results, said Los Angeles County Coroner Investigator Jerry McKibben.

Police said they were investigating, standard procedure in high-profile cases.

Brian Oxman, a former attorney of Jackson's and a family friend, said he was concerned about Jackson's use of painkillers and he warned the singer's family about possible abuse.

"I said one day, we're going to have this experience. And when Anna Nicole Smith passed away, I said we cannot have this kind of thing with Michael Jackson," Oxman said Friday on NBC's "Today" show. "The result was, I warned everyone, and lo and behold, here we are. I don't know what caused his death. But I feared this day, and here we are."

The 50-year-old musical superstar died Thursday, just as he was preparing for a series of 50 concerts starting July 13 at London's 02 arena.

He died at UCLA Medical Center after being stricken at his rented home in the posh Los Angeles neighborhood of Holmby Hills. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him.

His brother Jermaine said it was believed that Jackson suffered cardiac arrest at his home. Cardiac arrest is an abnormal heart rhythm that stops the heart from pumping blood to the body. It can occur after a heart attack or be caused by other heart problems.

A handful of bleary-eyed fans camped out throughout the night with media outside the Jackson family house in the San Fernando Valley and near his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Oxman, who said he was speaking on behalf of no one but himself, and other friends made the rounds among the news outlets, adding to the intrigue of Jackson's early demise. Oxman claims Jackson had prescription drugs at his disposal to help with pain suffered when he broke his leg after he fell off a stage and for broken vertebrae in his back.

"When the autopsy comes, all hell's going to break loose, so thank God we're celebrating him now," Liza Minnelli told CBS' "The Early Show" by telephone.

In 2007, Jackson settled a lawsuit filed by a Beverly Hills pharmacy that claimed the singer owed more than $100,000 for prescription drugs over a two-year period.

After Jackson was acquitted on child molestation charges in 2005, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Tom Sneddon argued returning some items belonging to Jackson he labeled "contraband." Sneddon said those included syringes, the drug Demerol and prescriptions for various drugs, mainly antibiotics, that were in different people's names.

Jackson's 1982 album, "Thriller," is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 million copies sold worldwide.

Billboard magazine editorial director Bill Werde said Jackson's 13 No. 1 one hits on the Billboard charts put him behind only Elvis Presley, the Beatles and Mariah Carey.

Associated Press Article on Jackson's death

LOS ANGELES -- Michael Jackson, defined in equal parts as the world's greatest entertainer and perhaps its most enigmatic figure, was about to attempt one of the greatest comebacks of all time. Then his life was cut shockingly--and so far, mysteriously--short.

The 50-year-old musical superstar died Thursday, just as he was preparing for what would be a series of 50 concerts starting July 13 at London's famed 02 arena. Jackson had been spending hours and hours toiling with a team of dancers for a performance he and his fans hoped would restore his tarnished legacy to its proper place in pop.

An autopsy was planned for Friday, though results were not likely to be final until toxicology tests could be completed, a process that could take several days and sometimes weeks. However, if a cause can be determined by the autopsy, they will announce the results, said Los Angeles County Coroner Investigator Jerry McKibben.

Police said they were investigating, standard procedure in high-profile cases.

Jackson died at UCLA Medical Center after being stricken at his rented home in the posh Los Angeles neighborhood of Holmby Hills. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him.

"It is believed he suffered cardiac arrest in his home. However, the cause of his death is unknown until results of the autopsy are known," his brother Jermaine said.

Cardiac arrest is an abnormal heart rhythm that stops the heart from pumping blood to the body. It can occur after a heart attack or be caused by other heart problems.

Jackson's death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music's premier all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage.

His 1982 album "Thriller"--which included the blockbuster hits "Beat It," "Billie Jean" and "Thriller"--is the best-selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 million copies sold worldwide.

As word of his death spread, MTV switched its programming to play videos from Jackson's heyday. Radio stations began playing marathons of his hits. Hundreds of people gathered outside the hospital. In New York's Times Square, a low groan went up in the crowd when a screen flashed that Jackson had died, and people began relaying the news to friends by cell phone.

"No joke. King of Pop is no more. Wow," Michael Harris, 36, of New York City, read from a text message a friend had sent him. "It's like when Kennedy was assassinated. I will always remember being in Times Square when Michael Jackson died."

The public first knew him as a boy in the late 1960s, when he was the precocious, spinning lead singer of the Jackson 5, the singing group he formed with his four older brothers out of Gary, Ind. Among their No. 1 hits were "I Want You Back," "ABC" and "I'll Be There."

He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his backward-gliding moonwalk, his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched singing, punctuated with squeals and titters. His single sequined glove, tight, military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses were trademarks, as was his ever-changing, surgically altered appearance.

"For Michael to be taken away from us so suddenly at such a young age, I just don't have the words," said Quincy Jones, who produced "Thriller." "He was the consummate entertainer and his contributions and legacy will be felt upon the world forever. I've lost my little brother today, and part of my soul has gone with him."

Jackson ranked alongside Elvis Presley and the Beatles as the biggest pop sensations of all time. He united two of music's biggest names when he was briefly married to Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie. Jackson's sudden death immediately evoked comparisons to that of Presley himself, who died at age 42 in 1977.

"I am so very sad and confused with every emotion possible," Lisa Marie Presley said in a statement. "I am heartbroken for his children who I know were everything to him and for his family. This is such a massive loss on so many levels, words fail me."

As years went by, Jackson became an increasingly freakish figure--a middle-aged man-child weirdly out of touch with grown-up life. His skin became lighter, his nose narrower, and he spoke in a breathy, girlish voice. He often wore a germ mask while traveling, kept a pet chimpanzee named Bubbles as one of his closest companions and surrounded himself with children at his Neverland ranch, a storybook playland filled with toys, rides and animals. The tabloids dubbed him "Wacko Jacko."

"It seemed to me that his internal essence was at war with the norms of the world. It's as if he was trying to defy gravity," said Michael Levine, a Hollywood publicist who represented Jackson in the early 1990s. He called Jackson a "disciple of P.T. Barnum" and said the star appeared fragile at the time but was "much more cunning and shrewd about the industry than anyone knew."

Jackson caused a furor in 2002 when he playfully dangled his infant son, Prince Michael II, over a hotel balcony in Berlin while a throng of fans watched from below.

In 2005, he was cleared of charges that he molested a 13-year-old cancer survivor at Neverland in 2003. He had been accused of plying the boy with alcohol and groping him, and of engaging in strange and inappropriate behavior with other children.

The case followed years of rumors about Jackson and young boys. In a TV documentary, he acknowledged sharing his bed with children, a practice he described as sweet and not at all sexual.

Despite the acquittal, the lurid allegations that came out in court took a fearsome toll on his career and image, and he fell into serious financial trouble.

Michael Joseph Jackson was born Aug. 29, 1958, in Gary. He was 4 years old when he began singing with his brothers--Marlon, Jermaine, Jackie and Tito--in the Jackson 5. After his early success with bubblegum soul, he struck out on his own, generating innovative, explosive, unstoppable music.

The album "Thriller" alone mixed the dark, serpentine bass and drums and synthesizer approach of "Billie Jean," the grinding Eddie Van Halen guitar solo on "Beat It," and the hiccups and falsettos on "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'."

The peak may have come in 1983, when Motown celebrated its 25th anniversary with an all-star televised concert and Jackson moonwalked off with the show, joining his brothers for a medley of old hits and then leaving them behind with a pointing, crouching, high-kicking, splay-footed, crotch-grabbing run through "Billie Jean."

The audience stood and roared. Jackson raised his fist.

During production of a 1984 Pepsi commercial, Jackson's scalp sustains burns when an explosion sets his hair on fire.

He had strong follow-up albums with 1987's "Bad" and 1991's "Dangerous," but his career began to collapse in 1993 after he was accused of molesting a boy who often stayed at his home. The singer denied any wrongdoing, reached a settlement with the boy's family, reported to be $20 million, and criminal charges were never filed.

Jackson's expressed anger over the allegations on the 1995 album "HIStory," which sold more than 2.4 million copies, but by then, the popularity of Jackson's music was clearly waning even as public fascination with his increasingly erratic behavior was growing.

Jackson married Lisa Marie Presley in 1994, and they divorced in 1996. Later that year, Jackson married Deborah Rowe, a former nurse for his dermatologist. They had two children together: Michael Joseph Jackson Jr., known as Prince Michael, now 12; and Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, 11. Rowe filed for divorce in 1999.

Jackson also had a third child, Prince Michael II. Now 7, Jackson said the boy nicknamed Blanket as a baby was his biological child born from a surrogate mother.

Billboard magazine editorial director Bill Werde said Jackson's star power was unmatched. "The world just lost the biggest pop star in history, no matter how you cut it," Werde said. "He's literally the king of pop."

Jackson's 13 No. 1 one hits on the Billboard charts put him behind only Presley, the Beatles and Mariah Carey, Werde said.

"He was on the eve of potentially redeeming his career a little bit," he said. "People might have started to think of him again in a different light."

I agree that Paul may have crossed out the Dr. bfeore his name in the guest book because he wanted to be remembered as a friend of Alexs, not just his therapist. He also probably did not want people to look at it and wonder about him being Alexs therapist because even though alex has passed away he may not want to show Alexs family something that they didnt know, like him going to therapy. I think that Paul invited Laura because she knew alex and maybe she was the only other person he knew that knew him so he may have felt obligated to let her know what had happened. He also probably did want someone there who he knew and could talk about it with and who would comfort him.I felt like Laura felt uncomfortable there the whole time. She hesitated when she went to sign the guest book and then just put the pen down and didn't sign it. I think she felt guilty being around Alexs family and close friends at his funeral knowing that in a way Alex had betrayed them with her. I think that Pauls story about his father may have made her feel more uncomfortable towards Paul knowing that she could be that patient that takes him away from his wife and kids just like his dad. This thought may have disgusted her and turned her off from him. And because she already felt uncomfortable I can see why she just wouldn't want to be there anymore. At this point, it seems like Lauras feelings toward Paul are not as intense. It may have just been the setting that they were in, but I felt like Paul was trying to connect and get close to her more than she did was with him. I think that since therapy she has learned more about Paul and maybe she is rethinking her feelings towards him, especially now after hearing that story.

I don't see any implication from Jon that Sally Ride was not a good role model. Just the oisoppte. One instance where Paterno decided in hind sight that he should have bucked his bosses ???? Joe Paterno was the boss. The President of the University tried to fire him 7 years ago and it didn't take. Paterno was the most powerful man on the Penn State campus. No one was a close second.The fact the college athletics is a cesspit of sham amatureism that systematically exploits young people is not an excuse for not reporting child abuse.

I miss you so much but I know that we will see each other again. You touched the lives of so many people. Even after four years, you are still making the News. There will never be another like you.

When I first saw him I remember thinking that this man has so much power, there is something about him, that is special, like a bright light. He made me think on Heaven. He was so beautiful on the inside , words just could not explain. He had the kind of power that only the LOVE of GOD, our GOD could give someone, like the power of an ANGEL. That is how I will always remember him an ANGEL. He had the power that GOD would only give to his chosen ones. Michael returned to whence he came . HEAVEN. That is what I see when I think of him, that is what I see, when I hear his voice HEAVEN. This Angel has returned to his FATHER IN HEAVEN.Michael may you find comfort in your FATHER'S HOUSE. May he hold you , may he carry and may you return to him. You have done your joy it is time for someone else to carry on what you started. You can rest now, your work here is done. Rest in the arms of your ANGEL. May you find some PEACE and COMFORT.

Sincerely,
Teresa

At this very difficult and sad time, I want to leave a message of comfort for Michael's mother and everyone whose hearts he captured. He was ours, the world had him, as the poem says. His beautiful smile, voice, dancing, humanitarian and philanthropic heart to change the world and lives for ever, to cheer us, save us and give us strength, were ours. He did it all, and so conquered the world. Nothing can ever change that. He was IT! He is IT!

everything about him is all GOOOOOOOOOOD, and when you thing of him you can't do anything but smile, cry, think, and wonder WHY. all he wanted us to do is love each other and but most of all show it. now that he's with his maker everybody wants to come forth to show how much they TRUELY LOVED HIM, to bad he's not here to see the love that we all have for him. we the people need to stop turnning away when our people needs us most, we can't let ppl turn us against each other, because when you look at it, when we come together as the black ppl and others, look at our PRESIDENT, so i say i have alot of memories of THE REAL KING OF POP,even though i never met him i fell i know him. EVERY year i say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to MICHEAL because he and i shared a birthday, and i'll always be thankful to have shared something so memoriable, saying that I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU MICHEAL JACKSON.

To the family of Michael Jackson: Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. May you find comfort in the Scriptures, remembering that death was never God's purpose for mankind. (Please see Romans 5:12). As a matter of fact, in the Scriptures, death is referred to as the last enemy, to be brought to nothing.' (Please see 1 Corinthians 15:26)

Daniel 2:44 says in part, The God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be brought to ruin. The Kingdom was so important that Jesus taught his disciples to pray for it; and he now rules from heaven, as the King of God's Kingdom. (Please see Matthew 6:10; 1 Corinthians 15:25)

It is by means of God's Kingdom (or Government) that all human suffering and even death will be permanently removed. (Please see Isaiah 25:8; 1 Corinthians 15:26; Revelation 21:4) And for our loved ones who are sleeping in death, the King of God's Kingdom has promised that he will raise these ones back to life on earth; and restore humans and the entire earth to their originally designed perfect condition. (Please see Acts 24:15; John 5:25-30; John 11:11-44; Job 33:25; Genesis 1:28; Matthew 5:5; Psalm 37: 10, 11, 29; John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Isaiah 9:7)

May God's unfailing promises strengthen and sustain you during this difficult time. Ms. Weston (Beaverg2009@yahoo.com)

My heart is still aching. My world forever shifted on June 25, 2009. I discovered Michael Jackson. I knew of Michael. I knew he was a wonderful soul. I never believed for a moment any of the media/tabloid garbage, but that day my world began to open up into new dimensions. And while I'm a changed person, my heart is breaking for the loss of Michael. However, I do know that his energy remains with us and he's happy to see us "make that change" here on earth.

Bible words written thousands of years ago, surprisingly struck an uncanny chord with me although I am not particularly religious, such is the extraordinary affect Michael Jackson's death has had on me. Some people may interpret them in different ways, but they sent a shiver down my spine.

The Revelations of St.John the Divine.

8 1 And when he opened the seventh seal, there followed a silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.

12 7 And there was war in heaven; Michael and his angels going forth to war with the dragon; and his angels
8 and they prevailed not,

10 ....Now is come the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ; for the accuser of our brethren is cast down,..

On a more earthly note, I have visited Michael's spellbinding memorabilia exhibition in London and I am looking forward to seeing the 'This Is It' dvd out on January 26th and reading 'Dancing the Dream'.

Posted by Nina    December 01, 2009

On June 25th, my world was 'rocked' like time stood still. And even now, as today, I feel so sad with the pain of the loss of Michael Jackson. I am still suspended in a trance-like heartbroken state. Incredible as, regretfully, I had not seen him too much except for 'Black Or White'; now I can't 'get enough.'
My first memories of him go way back to the late 60's when a small boy's vibrant voice rang out in 'ABC', 'Rockin Robin' and 'The Love You Save'.
So terrible, tragic, he had to die before I realised what we have lost, not appreciated what we had, thinking he would always be here. But that is 'human nature', I guess.
On Thursday, I saw 'This Is It', it was absolutely sensational. MJ was so energetic, alive, enthusiastic, although a little thin. His long, rivetting 'Billie Jean' dance routine was as electric as ever when the other performers and crew began whistling, stomping, shouting, and cheering He was smiling, laughing, so happy and enjoying himself, fit, and not out of breath. Your could say he died happy, doing what he loved. His voice was strong and wonderful. As has been said, if only he could be here to see its success and triumph.
I will buy the dvd in the New Year. Those 02 concerts would have been 'out of this world','blown us out of the water'. I loved the end when his feet do his iconic little dance up onto his toes and you can hear his faint distant laughter.
I hope to see his memorabilia exhibition in London at the end of the month, and listen to many more songs to be released.
We must be proud and happy for him, for what he achieved in his life, what he has left us; the fantastic memories, the music and his beautiful children.
I have left this last message here to try to comfort my suffering soul, and because I have tried many times to submit a 'memory' message on his official website, but failed to get it submitted; but I suppose it doesn't really matter as long as I can share my feelings and thoughts to help others.

I am so happy my 'memory' tribute has been submitted. I want to add that I am grateful that I lived at the same time as Michael Jackson. God Bless, and thank him for all he gave us. He gave his all. I have cried reading all the moving tributes to him, filled with all the love, like mine, that people feel for him. Perhaps this is not the end, but the beginning for the better world he wanted, if we all remember the good things he did and said. There is nothing more to say.

Posted by Nina Hamilton - Birmingham. England   October 14, 2009

Yes. Michael Jackson did light up the world. With mixed bitter-sweet emotions I listened to 'This Is It' and felt the love, passion and feeling, heard that voice, the beautiful powerful lyrics and flowing rhythm. It was almost as if he was alive and his spirit all around. Four months since he died and I am startled he is still in my thoughts and heart all the time. Unbelievable. I watched his top 40 videos on a TV music channel just after he died, and I was 'blown away, hooked'. I have bought magazines, cds, dvds, books, posters so I will always have his image, his smile,his voice. Every day I play something or go online. I have even bought a ticket to see the film which just goes to show that, even at 67, you are never too old to be a MJ fan! His 20 years of philanthropic charity work has inspired me to send money to The Great Ormond Street Hospital as he did, and help children read as a volunteer in line with his reading foundation also in London. It all helps ease my grief. I hope there be memorial statues of him, and places where we can still hear his music and see him dance all around the world. I hope my words may have comforted all the fans out there, particularly his mother and children.

My world seemingly STOPPED the day that I heard the most unfortunate news of Michael Jackson's death. I did not want to believe it, lost sleep, couldn't eat, did not/could not talk to others who were not fans; I WAS A MESS!

How talented, his dance and spirit will live in the hearts of all for eternity. Love him or hate him, he was a giant on the floor and through his voice with his music.

I want justice for the individual(s) that allowed his death and to make them realize that the "LOVE of money IS the root of all EVIL."

Rest in peace Michael Joseph Jackson; we loved you but GOD LOVES YOU BEST.

You will always live in our hearts 4EVER!

I remember when the Jackson 5 came to Mobile, Alabama and of course it was sold out. We had a ball, and Micheal showed out, he and his brothers had the crowd going crazy with that dam Moonwalk. I just want to say that He will be missed and there will never be another like him. Just like the Reverend Al Sharpton said" there is nothing strange about him just how the media treated him.

when I was about 10 years old, my aunt bought me Michael's first album and when I went to leave her house it fell out of the cover and broke, I was so upset and cryed for days because I couldn't get anyone to pay for another album. Michael will really be missed and we love him very much. I don't believe that anyone in the world ever stopped loving him even through the hard times. Rest in Peace Michael mabey now you can get the peace that you so wanted without the pain. We love you.

God looked around his garden
And found an empty place
He then looked down upon this earth
And saw your tired face
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest
God's garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best
He knew that you were suffering
He knew you were in pain
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again
He saw that the road was
getting rough and the hills hard to climb
So he closed your weary eyelids
And whispered, "Please be thine"
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn't go alone
For a part of us went with you
The day God called you home.

In Honor of Michael Jackson

Beyond our understanding, above the heavens
and the clouds, his spirit reaches pass the stars and now his heart does soar!

His spirit enjoys eternal peace, his heart
is filled with joy. Above the pain of our
human condition, now resting with the Lord.

The angels sang as God called him and welcomed him to His Heavenly Home. Made
himself an Angel now__Now his heart does soar.
At night when I look up at the sky, each
brightly shinning star is out rejoicing to
the Lord. And every Angel in Heaven has
welcomed him and forever his heart will
soar!

i loved michael jackson....ive cried my heart out everyday since this has happened. like he was a part of my family. i know i never "knew" him, but it seemed so as his passing has impacted my life so much. i can't quit crying...his children were so blessed to have him as a father. i know he is looking down from heaven and realizing what an impact he made to this world. i wish more entertainers or celebrities would use their millions to help the less fortunate like michael continued to do, even in death. his music and videos will live on forever, but his spirit will live in my heart forever also. we are the fortunate ones who got to hear and see the magic that was michael jackson for so many, many years. he still had a long life ahead. what a tragedy. words can't really describe a feeling of loss. my heart is broken. god bless his beautiful children and god bless michael jackson. may his sweet, loving, beautiful soul R.I.P. you will be greatly missed and loved.

I'm a 37 year old woman. When I was 12 I had an 11th row ticket to see the Jackson's Victory Tour! 4 days of camping out! I could never understand why my aunts & mother cried over Elvis or The Beatles! But here I was at Mile High Stadium so CLOSE to the Jackson's, I could see their EYELASHES! The lights went out BANG!!! Michael exploded on the stage dancing, twirling, kicking, moonwalking, smiling, that beautiful voice, and perfection!! I then understood my mother and my aunts!! Something came over me and I WEPT....a weeping that was full of awe & OMG I am in the same place as Michael! His performance made this little girl discover what it felt like to truly be MOVED beyond words! The best concert ever! I am so greatful!! I LOVE MJ! He was a wonderful man & full of life and kindness. I say with a heavy heart...I can't imagine the world without him in it!!! But he will live on forever & his grace he gave to the human race will be never be forgotten. It was a huge loss for me...my knees buckled when I heard the news. I have wept everyday since! The world loved you Michael. God be with his 3 children, family, friends, and fans. Blue Skies from now on MJ!!!

Micheal Jackson was one of the most loved person in the world. It sadden to see the media has been so cruel for years about the molestation charges but yet they are quick to say how much they will miss him and how great is was. I stood by Micheal during those years and making alot of people upset with me because I was so out spoken for Micheal. Micheal I will miss you and I do believe you were innocent of all wrong doing. I am so sorry the people of this world had to be so mean and hateful to you and to your childern. We will watch your childern grow and morn for you with such great pain. I am sorry for the worlds hatered. Thank you for all the great music and dance moves.

Once in a while, stars are born. Some argue that stars these days are made but very very rarely, there are stars that are born that shine the brightest. Michael Jackson was one of those stars who shone brightly for five generations before his light was suddenly extinguished. It is very difficult to describe how I feel now, especially after watching the memorial service and seeing his casket. It's difficult for me to bid farewell to a man whose music and lyrics and performances became like our comfortable family couch and helped shape me in many ways as a person and as a fan.

Growing up during the height of his career made me feel even more privileged to be his fan. Though I only had glimpses of him from TV or read about him in news articles, his songs made me feel somehowcloser to him. I suppose I could credit my Dad for introducing me to the music of the Jackson 5. He told me how sweet Michael Jackson sounded as a kid, singing songs that were written for older entertainers with a maturity that even surpassed these entertainers. I remember singing Santa Clause Is Coming To Town and giggled when I listened to I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause and it made me wonder if Michael ever got to experience that kind of Christmas.

Then I listened to his solo albums and fell in love with Thriller and Bad almost instantly. There was just something extraordinary about this man's lyricism that blew me away and even more so when he danced. I remember that, as a little girl, I wanted to learn how to dance like him and even dreamed of one day being able to ask him to teach me how to moonwalk. And of course, I saved like mad for my own Thriller jacket. I never got that jacket, but MJ was instrumental in influencing me how to curb my spendthrift ways. It seems like such a small thing to other people, but at that time, it was a pretty big thing for me.

Seeing how he'd inspired so many artists from both older and younger generations and how he'd touched the lives of millions of fans around the globe makes it even harder for me to believe that he is truly, physically gone. What has become like a permanent fixture of my childhood, like that old, familiar family couch is now gone. And I am sad.

His life was painful to watch, and as it continued to unfold through the barrage of controversy, I hoped that he would someday find peace and be able to make the biggest comeback in entertainment history like the man he worked hard to become. He's one reason why I can never let go of my inner child and perhaps, will not let go of it forever.

His success in breaking so many racial barriers and uniting people in the MJ Fever is what makes him legendary. I was surprised that he'd made it to the Guiness Book of Records for the most charitable institutions supported by a celebrity. I didn't know that. But that was probably because he had never been one to brag. During all his public appearances, interviews and such, he appealed for nothing but global healing and love for children. At that time, I was a little girl and when he had started his mission to bring more smiles to children, I felt like maybe I could believe in the world a little more.

Some might think I'm exaggerating, but a lot of what he did for the world made someone like me feel happy. I never got to see his concert in Manila, but he went out of his way to visit sick children in the hospitals in Manila and make them smile. It showed on his face how much joy he took in a child's laughter. And that was one reason why I held on to my belief throughout the controversies that Michael was innocent. Indeed, he was proven innocent but the damage had been done and my heart went out to him in the days that he was mocked and ridiculed by people who just refused to understand.

Others may say that he doesn't deserve this kind of tribute, that there are others who deserve much more, but I say that this was a fitting farewell. It was the best kind of send-off for someone who shaped so many lives by moonwalking and creating a form of escapism for us through his music.

Few are privileged to see such a star shine so brightly up close, but Michael made it possible for us to see him shine from every corner of the world. And for that, I thank him for all the music.

I love you, Michael Jackson and I will miss you.

I agreed with a statement a fan Jasmine made:"Michael touched the life of so many". He was a man of love for the world.He was a humble,kind,loving,giving,caring and magical like "JESUS".No he wasn't JESUS,but he was filled with the love and pure-ness of GOD's love,who was betrayed by lies...I'm from the 50's,and grew up listening to Michael's music and I was always so hypnotice by the power of his performance.I will forever miss you Michael, but I know that your music will live forever...There will never be another like Michael.He was one of a kind.

I remember Michael and his brothers as the Jackson 5. I am 5 years older than Michael. At one time he was all I thougt about. Being young and growing up an only child. I didn't have any friends. The neighborhood kids were never really friendly to me. Sometimes I would just go home and, when I got home, there was Michael's picture with his brothers that always made me feel special. I could go to my room and play the J5 music and just be happy. The neighborhood kids weren't always nice to me, I don't know why, but, when I got home just looking at Michael's picture and Jermaine, I got happy again. I had them all to myself, alone in my room. I used to cry when I was alone because of the way they acted toward me and I'd go home and Michael always made me feel better, everytime. Noone knew how I felt, I was miserable all the time but in my room was Michael and his brothers who did give me some peace. I grew up as did Michael and I still kept up with hi8m some what. It still doesn't seem real to me, my heart hurts. Thanks Michael for the comfort you gave me during my childhood. God Bless you and give you and your family peace. Rest sweet Prince, forever Deloris

Michael Jackson's life was similar to Jesus Christ. All he ever did was try to literally " Heal the world" and seems he was only punished for it while he was here, but is nearly praised while gone. He was the biggest humanitarian I know and it is sad that he was hurt the way he was when here. I cried when I heard of his death and still cry when I hear his music. My favorite memory of Michael is listening to and singing his song " Ben " when I was younger.

I have always enjoyed Michael's music. And even now when I hear his music, I get excited and want to dance. His music will never become old. Now, he is just asleep, unconcious of anything, and I will be happy to see him again, after the resurrection. He left a legacy of music that stirred the soul and leaves you thinking, and he was a gentle soul.

At 7 years old I started watching Michael Jackson and imitating his mind blowing dance moves. Im now 17 and not a day has gone by since then that I havent listened to his amazing music. Ive also turned into a decent dancer just by watching the King of Pop and no other training. I love to dance it helps me relax and clear my mind, and it is such a huge part in my life and I have Michael to thank for all of that! He will be missed but I know till the day that I die, a day wont go by that I dont listen to Michael Jackson's Music. RIP Michael Jackson the "King of Pop"

Michael, I was so sadden when I learn about your passing away. Tears streamed down my face, as I sat and listened to your brother, Jermaine, on National TV, express to the world, his unconditional love for his brother. Jermaine also reminded us about the unconditional love you manifested to mankind,while you were yet still here in the flesh. Your hard work has paid off because now you are in a glorious state. They destroyed your flesh, but not your soul. Michael, your love and memory will live on in Billions of hearts and minds. "LOVE YOU MICHAEL JACKSON AND FAMILY"

I wanted to send a note to the family.
I lost my husband when he was only 36 years old, and he left behind 3 small children. My husband had been very ill and did not let us know. (I do not mean to say that I believe everything about the drugs with Michael, but I wanted to tell the rest of the story so that you would know that I kind of understand). He was in Iraq and got ill. He got out of the service and started to act different. He used medications to stop the pain in his head, but the problem was that he got the stuff from different doctors. I finally realized that there was something was really wrong and took him to hospital it was really to late for him. The doctors told me before he passed that he was just trying to get rid of the pain and nothing that he took would take care of it. The doctors that he had seen did not know that there was something wrong in is brain, something that he caught while he was overseas. The last hospital that I took him too, realized that his brain was swollen and that steroids where the only thing they could give him and then Tylenol would help. They were not able to save him, but it helped me know why he would do something like he did. He passed away in 1997 at the age of 36. It was very hard on all of us, but the one thing is that we have never forgotten him, and I now can understand that he just wanted to get away from the pain, and that I do not blame him.

I know that we are not famous or rich, but you know that really does not matter. It is the love that we feel for our loved ones and what will happen to the children.

I had to learn to be both Mother and Father to the children, which is what Michael did from the first day that he had his children.

What I want the family to know is that the children will always remember their father and they will remember all the good times that they had, and the little things that we as adults really forget. Like the bath time together, where they made costumes with suds. The time that they sat together and just read a story or watched a movie. Those are the images that they will remember. It has helped my kids by talking to them and having them tell me about their dad, and the special things that they remember about him. Let them make their own family albums with the pictures that they want to put in, and let them write what each of the pictures are about and the what fun thing that picture reminds them of.

Michaels children cannot be protected from everything, and that just goes with who their father is, but this will be a special something to look back at that is all their own and the true meaning of their father. Because only what they know of their father and what the family remembers of their father is what counts.

We the public and the media do not count for anything in the true life of Michael.
I would like for the family to know that we are there for them even if it's only in a letter. It will take time to heal, and for the family they can only block out the negative and remember the great.

I tried to find a page that I could send my condolences on.
I remember them all from when I was a kid. I was born in 1960 so I remember them all.
Please just let them know to hold on to the good, and each other, and love the children. Let them remember their dad the way that they want to remember him.

Jermaine remember your brother as a loving brother, friend, and father.
He will be missed.
Thank you for letting me send this to you.
I hope that you will allow this to get to the family.

We will all miss him and remember all the good things that he made us feel with his music.

I grew up watching Michael Jackson grow up on television. He was the Elvis of the 80's for many of us. He was very unique and will be greatly missed. It too bad he got such a bad rap and was accused of bad things, I too get stereotyped as he did and it really hurts. You never know what someone is like till you live with them. I believe Michael was a very peaceful soul who got mistreated in his young life and it made him very different than most of us. He was a good man. He helped the world to try and be a better place.

I'm flooded with emotions, memories, sadness and profound loss. We have lost a genius talent never to be replaced. I feel like my best friend is gone, a piece of my soul has flown away.

My condolences go out to the Jackson family. I'm so sorry. Your angel Michael is watching over you now. Mrs. Jackson Micheal's face lit up every time he spoke of you. I'm so glad his children are with you. Many people said Micheal was childlike. I only saw the innocence of a child. It reminds me of that Bible quote saying that we must be childlike to get into the kingdom of heaven. Thanks for sharing him with all of us. (I'm sorry people took advantage.) His song "They don't care about us" makes me cry. The saddest part is that I can see how that was true for him. Thanks for being there for him and giving him a reason to still hold his head high. He will always be remembered in my mind and Many Many others for his greatness and kindness and talent. I will continue to pray for your family and Michael. I hope he is praying for us. I hope you feel our prayers.

I have no real memories of Michael other than watching him grow up in the news. He was extraordinary in mind and spirit... his intent I believe was basically good regardless of the rumors and truths behind his tragically short-lived life. My wish for his spirit is that in death maybe he can find the love, acceptance and peace he so craved for in life. More importantly, maybe in heaven he can put away the demons which haunted him on earth. Rest peacefully, Michael and look down upon and protect your children, all children from above.

We could count on Michael Jackson, the ultimate iconic genius, and the J5 to sustain us in song through the turbulent 1968 thru 1973 era of school integration in Atlanta and the South. I will forever cherish the memories of taking my 6-year old son to Michael's concert in the 1980's at the Georgia Dome, for which I dressed him like Michael.

I have always loved Michael, we grew up together. On 6/25/09, my heart broke, without ever meeting this gentle man, I felt as if I lost a long time friend. Not only has the world lost a great, caring person, the Jackson family has lost a son and brother & most of all a father. My prayers are with the family and his children. I hope now the world can see what a humanitarian and loving person he realy was.

I am writing with tears on my face to let the Jackson family know how much I am sorry they lost their wonderful son, brother, father, uncle... Michael was so sensitive. We could hear it in his voice and see it in his dance and steps.

Michael was unmatched as a performer and someone that a part of us will be forever changed by.

He really needed to rest. He was exhausted from what was bothering him. We had to let him go back to God who gave him to us.

He gave everything he had to his art and we loved him and his music and dancing too much. We will always miss him, his beautiful music and dancing.

He was given to us by God and God saw fit to take him when He needed him to be in heaven. I know he is in heaven now looking down at our misery without him and will welcome us (his family and public fans) with open arms when it is our time.

A wonderful person and performer like Michael only comes along once in a lifetime and for me it was your wonderful brother, son and father who touched me at a tough time in my life and made it better for me through his music.

May God Bless the Jackson family and remain with them now during this especially difficult time and always.

Love and Blessings,

An article I read today, June 29, 2009, about Michael Jackson:

Columnist Andrew Sullivan, on his blog for The Nation magazine, wrote that he grieved for Jackson "but I also grieve for the culture that created and destroyed him."

"That culture is ours, and it is a lethal and brutal one: With fame and celebrity as its core values, with money as its sole motive, it chewed this child up and spat him out," Sullivan wrote. "I hope he has the peace now he never had in his life. And I pray that such genius will not be so abused again."

This scripture were the last verses I'd read which was the day before Michael Jackson went to the Lord to live and be in His loving presence forever:

Come now, you who say, "Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit"; whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. Instead you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that." (James 4:13-15)

GOD LOVES YOU, MICHAEL.
I Love You, too.

Eternally yours,

Liisa

I Have never seen michael in person but I thought I would finally get a chance with this tour. Im thirty-three now but as a little girl I had all his posters from Thriller like, Human Nature. Billy jean beat it, etc He was so beautiful to me. I would lay in bed for hours staring at him. I loved him so. I was only eight but I felt so deeply for him.I still remember those feelings. Now, I have my own children and they love him also. My daughter is ten and she cried herself to sleep after hearing of his death. I still cant believe it! But it made me look at life and how presious it really is, how precious my children are . I look at Michael, A man I thought would live forever. But, at least his music will. And he will live on in us. God bless you Michael

The world has received "BAD" news...It has left me quite "SPEECHLESS", almost as if watching a "THRILLER"!

The news that Michael Jackson has died is "OFF THE WALL". Throughout the years, he'd become a household name and an icon. He wasn't only a "DANCE MACHINE" but a true showman. To many, his life choices were not approved and always criticized. Always in the spotlight for accusations that none of us could ever prove!! So, why "SCREAM" whether he's "BLACK OR WHITE"? "SAY, SAY, SAY" this or that... So what that he wanted a "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)", everyone wants kids, no?

The media always "WANNA BE STARTIN' SOMETHIN'" "TABLOID JUNKIES" thinking they're "SMOOTH CRIMINALS" prying in lives, other than their own! We all know they "DON'T STOP 'TIL YOU GET ENOUGH"..! Put yourself in his shoes and try...(KEYWORD: TRY) to live his life... No "CHILDHOOD", no life of his own, no "PRIVACY", and on and on...Just "BEAT IT" and buzz off already!!!!! He may not have been perfect, but who is??? People focus too much on the negative and don't stop to notice that he may just really wanted to "HEAL THE WORLD".

I can only picture him that morning looking at a "MAN IN THE MIRROR" and having no clue it was that man's last day. I feel he has "GONE TOO SOON"... As a young girl, I was a huge fan and I'm proud to admit it...I had a shirt for "CRY"ing out loud.. Hee Hee! If I could tell him anything, it'd be.. "it was always about, "THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL" and I would love to "ROCK WITH YOU"..."

If you feeel the same, know that "YOU ARE NOT ALONE" All we can do now is "COME TOGETHER" and "REMEMBER THE TIMES".....!

Michael Jackson!! A name that will live on forever in the minds and spirts of everyone who has every seen or heard or read anything about you. You were an incredible entertainer who raised the bar on how to be a SUPERSTAR!! You showed how hard work and talent kept you on top, even when others tried to knock you down. There will never be another like you but rest assured there will be many more paying tributes to you by copying your signature moves. Your pain here on earth has ended, but I hope and pray you have found the childhood that you lost so many years ago in heaven. Tell Ryan I said hello also.

Posted by Calitym - Portland, OR   June 29, 2009

Micheal you were a gift sent from God.
You came down from up above
The pain you suffered people will never know.
But through it all you went on with the show.
Understood by very few.
Only those close to you really knew
Scrutinized for how you looked,what you said and did.
Criticized for how you chose to live.
You gave so much love to those in need
Making sure children from the very poor could feed
You gave off so much love and got so little in return
Maybe now your gone people will look back and learn
A man but still a child in mind
Hoping and wishing that one day you would find
A place where you could just be free to do
What you wanted,just to be you
You finally have the peace you so yearned for
The last Chapter of the book has ended
You can know shut the door
Now God has taken you home
Where you will never again be alone

One of my favorite childhood memories is Saturday mornings, watching the Jackson 5 cartoons with my dad after he made us pancakes. I loved and enjoyed Off the Wall and Thriller all through high school. I remember the night of the Motown special, watching with my mom, the both of us staring in awe at the TV during Michael's performance. I'm proud to have been a witness to the birth of a new superstar. Michael Jackson was such a gentle and gracious human being. I wish I would have appreciated him as much as he deserved while he was still here. I am heartbroken.

THE MICHAEL JACKSON WILL BE REMEMBERED AS AN INSPIRATION TO THE WORLD. HIS TALENT, HIS LOVE AND HIS MANKIND FOR LIFE WILL CONTINUE TO LIVE AMONG US. HE WAS DEFINITELY A GENIUS OF HIS TIME, A ANGEL FROM HEAVEN AND A CHILD OF GOD. MICHAEL YOU WILL BE MISSED IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE, BUT MAY YOU REST IN PEACE AND BE FREE FROM ALL THAT WORRIES YOU. WE LOVE YOU MICHAEL JACKSON AND WE WILL SEE YOU LATER!

Michael, may you rest in final peace. I will miss you forever. The world has lost a bright and shining star whose light continues to shine throughout the blessed earth. You have been a kindred spirit. You have successfully transcended this earthly realm and are called back to your angelic home. Your work is done my son.
May we see you again in your children.
Good bye and may you hear "Well done thou good and faithful servant."

Michael Jackson touched the lives of many and will be greatly missed but always remembered
I send my prayers and condolences to the family and want all of you to know that you are loved by so many
Michael was my favorite artist and I loved hearing him sing and watching him perform However, what i loved most was his kind, compassionate and giving heart
As a child I remember his contribution to the We are the World Aid to Africa project I remember how much good that brought to the hearts of the children and people of the world
I now work with teenagers at a YMCA and they asked me what i would miss most and I shared with them the memory of the song We are the World and all the good that came out of that moment
This inspired them to locate and watch the video
They were astonished by all of the artists that gathered on that one night to sing for a cause
They asked would that ever happen again
I said I didn't know
Some said maybe in his memory it will
I also was very concerned by how a boy only a few years older than me was being treated because he had the fatal AIDS virus
I spent a lot of time reading and following his story
Again, Michael became involved and inspired Ryan White to keep on going
When he died Michael's song Gone too soon was perfect
Michael never stopped trying to create peace in this world as he helped many at his Never Land Ranch
Heal the world at the Super Bowl was awe inspiring
I will miss his energy and passion that he shared with us all

Janet,

I am sorry for your pain
Michael was a wonderful person and I am sure a wonderful brother
I have always been a fan of yours as well
I see so much of Michael in you
I hope someday you feel courageous enough to embrace the gift that only you two shared
No matter where life leads you remember you are never alone and he lives on inside you Smile, he will never truly leave you
You are forever in my prayers

Love you all,
Becky

I am from Michael Jackson's home state of Indiana. My brother and myself grew up listening to his music. Depsite everything that this man went through,he was a talented man,a true icon,a legand. God saw his ups and downs in life,the heartaches, the suffering and decided it was time to bring him home.God let him know that "You Are Not Alone" and "I Want You Back". He will sadly be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Jackson family.

I feel that part of my childhood and youth has passed away.

How can I forget all those hours I spent in front of the TV, trying to do MJ's moves when I was little? How can I forget all those teenager-parties, where we all danced at his music? How can I forget the money I was saving just to get that red jacket he was wearing on Thriller-video?

His death touched me so much, but then again that is what ART does to you. It affects your life, your inner world. That is what Michael Jackson did to me.

Ty Michael! I will never forget you.

May you rest in Peace!

There are no words to describe what I have felt during the weekend, what I still feel now. I have always liked his music and he was such an isnpiration to so many people. It is nice to see that at least now he gets the attention and respect he truly deserved. My condolences to his family and especially his children.

Michael was the first inspiration I can remember as a young aspiring performer - he had a commitment to his craft that is unparalleled by any other entertainer of his or my time. He sacrificed any chance of normalcy to give us all intrigue, hope, passion, determination, and love. All facets of his life are played out in his music and given to us so selflessly and for the greater good. What a performer, what a talent, and what a loss.

I'll always have a place for him in my heart because of how happy he made me as a child and even into my adult years. I am glad he is in a better place now and won't have to endure the troubles he had here on Earth any longer... I just wish I could "wake up" and this all be a nightmare. Thank you so much for making my childhood special Michael... rest now, you deserve it. We miss you so much and will love you always Michael.

I was just a 12 year old girl when he came out into full stardom , we loved him our whole school year.His music took me into a world of excitement! and freedom!. . And in the hard times songs such as Ben , and Remember the Time , Earth
Song , , where to tell you the truth releaving to my mind and soul.
It was sad to see his mental dimise in his loniess and obseucrity , and how his childhood that didnt allow him the time to just be,had twisted his ways , but now today the world should remember the greater part of the spirited African American man with such a huge love to serve his fans, with his talents somethng that was true about him from a young age, when he sung Rock'n Robin.
the rythym and beat he put in our hearts..

RIP Michael.
Please God forgive a silent tear,
a constant wish that he was here.
Others were taken, yes we know,
but he was ours and we loved
him so. He bid no one a last
farewell, nor even said good-bye
He was gone before we knew it
and only God knows why.

If all the world were ours to give
we'd give it all and more
to see that loving face of his
just once more.

For those of who have
someone who means a lot,
treasure them with care.
For you never know their value
til you see their vacant chair.

Michael Jackson was the most talented entertainer and the biggest loss in my lifetime. If people knew he was abusing drugs, why would they continue to provide them? For money? But wasn't he in debt? Doesn't add up. I'm glad he was acquitted because I believed he was innocent, just misunderstood. He may have been a bit "off" mentally but what great artist wasn't? It's great to see all the love for him coming out now but it's also a bit sad because where was it when he needed it? I wish we did this for him to see when he was still alive. Why do we wait for someone to die to show love? Seems incredibly backwards to me, but that's how our society works, right?

Michael J. said it best himself when it comes to his life: "Don't stop 'til you get enough." Thanks to all the people he encountered who were users, abusers, and enablers, looks like he finally had enough.

Thank you for sharing your talent with us, Michael. You'll be remembered and loved forever like Elvis and others. You made my teenage years a real "Thriller" and I thank you for that. I'll be dancing to your music for as long as the good Lord allows me.
I love you. Hope you find peace now that nobody can hurt you anymore. God Bless your children and family members. Goodbye and Thank you for your music and hard work. And save a dance for me if you can for when I get there too ...
Thanks.

I know you are free of pain and shinning down on us all. There are some people trying to tarnish your memory with neg. things being said. All I can say is they never knew you or the love you gave. They are blind to who you was really all about. Thank goodness the people that really knew you and loves you know these neg. things are not true! Everyone had bad times in their lives but, it does not mean they were monster like some are trying to paint you to be. People that live in glass houses should not be the first to throw stones. Shame on them and I know Michael you would forgive them cause this is what kind of a man you was. RIP .... love you forever

Michael
You were a Gift from God
You came down from up above
The pain you suffered people will never know
But through it all you still went on with the show.
Understood by very few
Only those close to you relly knew
You gave so much love to those in need
Making sure children from the very poor could feed.
You gave off so much love and got so little in return.
Maybe now you're gone people will live and learn.
A man but still a child in mind
Hoping and wishing that one day you would find
Aplace where you could just be free to do
What you wanted,just be you
Now God has taken you home
Where you will never again be alone.

Michael Jackson, always present in my younger years and still today. The songs, the music, the writing will be my inspiration forever. The hard life you've lived and the sacrifices you had to make are of such nature that I'm convinced you wouldn't wish them to your worst enemies. I hope that you will be remembered for who you truly were; a man with the best of intentions, who used his ability to entertain and create, and did all this in the hope to make our world a little bit better. I deeply respect you for that. This is how I will remember you. And this is how my children someday will first know you.

My love to the Jackson family & friends, but most of all to you Michael.

May you rest in peace, and feel our deepest love and respect in the place you are now.

I would tell people that he was my dad since I never knew my biological father. Michael you will truely be missed and your are defintely loved, and never forgetten. The world has truely lost not just a great entertainer who broke barriers but a great man who cared more for others than himself. I'm hurt to see you depart this earth but knowing you are in heaven and not enduring the pain of slander and evil talk cushions my heart. I love you, and may you rest in peace.

I am at a loss for words still over the passing of Michael Jackson. I grew up in the 80's listening to Thriller, leanring his dance moves, and trying to re-create his music videos with friends. He was a musical genius who will always be remembered for his creative mind and soulful music. He gave the music industry and the world so much.
My daughter, who is 14 months old, jams to Michael's music even now, and I hope to teach her the legacy of Michael's music and hope she embraces it since his music is so timeless, and will play on until the end of time.
I've been watching coverage of the crowds who have gathered to grieve for Michael..the crowd in front of the Apollo on particular, and as sad as this moment is, I can't help but shed a smile, and think Michael is smiling down too, when he sees every race, color, creed and age, gathered together to dance and sing and celebrate his life in a way noone has seen before, at least in my generation. It truly proves how amazing he was that he was able to bring everyone together through his music, and that, if nothing else, will live on forever. Thank you for all the years of wonderful music, Michael. It was appreciated. I hope you are finally at peace and I pray for you and your family.

What does it profit a man, if he gains the whole world but loses his soul?

The world is full of addictions, I tell you there is hope in Christ. He can free you from your troubles, He'll give you rest for a hope and a future. Don't rely on drugs to help you, they only cover the symptoms.

Check out your hope in Christ and what He can offer you, before it is too late for you.
I loved Michaels' songs, performances and style. He was one of a kind. He is his own.
Wish he could have done more with his billions, like Feed the World.
Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Look up for answers, Praying Christ will find you with a broken heart to fill it with Him. Blessing to all the readers here...

Your music has touched my heart and soul throughout the years. As a child I can still remember using my allowance to go and buy "Off The Wall" at the record store. On that record there was a song titled "I Can't Help It". I must have played that song a thousand times. It was such beautiful music to my ears. All of your music has meant so much to so many people including myself. I want to wish you a "Peaceful Journey" my friend. I know the Lord has prepared a home for you. I know I'll see you again someday. You are at peace now. They can't hurt you anymore. I know you're singing with the angels in heaven now. Take Care...and thanks again for the beautiful music you left us. I'll keep on Jamming !

Michael Jackson was a great performer. I wish people would stop saying negative comments about Michael.

His children are going to need lot's of love. The focus should be on them not on anything else.

God called him home. There is a reason in life for everything.

So everybody say a prayer.

Just want to say Thank you to Michael Jackson for making the 80's the best they could possibly be. Nobody has been able to give us what he has in over 30 years! To the haters out there, if you think you could do better, Id like to see you try! God Bless Michael and his family. He was acquitted. I always believed in him anyway. Thank you for everything Michael. I'll be a fan forever.

June 25, 2009: The day The music died

the passing of Michael Jackson is the saddest day and a significant event in my life. The man and his music represented a time and place in pop culture that influenced and shaped the lives of not only those of my generation, but also those before, after and to come.

Rest in peace King of Pop.

Like a comet
Blazing 'cross the evening sky
Gone too soon

Like a rainbow
Fading in the twinkling of an eye
Gone too soon

Shiny and sparkly
And splendidly bright
Here one day
Gone one night

Like the loss of sunlight
On a cloudy afternoon
Gone too soon

Like a castle
Built upon a sandy beach
Gone too soon

Like a perfect flower
That is just beyond your reach
Gone too soon

Born to amuse, to inspire, to delight
Here one day
Gone one night

Like a sunset
Dying with the rising of the moon
Gone too soon
Gone too soon

I am a 51 year old black women who remembers the first appearance of the Jackson 5 on the Ed Sullivan, I can not tell you how important it was to have an African American group in my generation realize the success of the Jackson 5. It said here we are and we are special. I am so happy to say I was able to see him perform, he was thrilling, awesome and inspired. Later in the 80's when he was the first African American who achieved the cross over success that he did, was amazing. He affected a generation that Sinatra, The Beattles and Elvis did not impact. No matter what the negatives of his life and we ALL have them, he was truly gifted and when he perform he shared Joy. My heartfelt prayers go out to his mother, children, sisters, brothers and family. He is free finally. Rest in Peace Micheal

Always considered the King of Pop, no matter how 'eclectic'. My parents were Mo Town fanatics so I have been listening to his music forever and bought my first MJ album (Off the Wall) in the late 1970's while a youngster in Central America.

Already then a legend and not just in the US.

When the Jackson-5 appeared on Ed Sullivan Show years ago, I was spell bound. They were the greatest and everyone wanted to sing and dance like the Group. They actually brought a new, fresh grove to the surface. Everytime Michael came on stage the question I had, "What move is he going to bring to the table?" Michael was brilliant; too caring; too loving; so much wanted to satisfy the mass public; yet needing more love and more support from the public. I will truly miss this Icon. But God loves him more. God bless Michael and the whole Jackson Family during your time of bereavement.

It was hard to believe the news when I first heard about it yesterday, and it's still hard to believe it today...Michael Joseph Jackson, "The King of Pop", has passed on.

Though I only knew him through his music, films and TV appearances, he never struck me as being anything more than a genuine and sincere person. Though I feel he suffered from emotional problems and could, justifiably, be considered a dilusional person, I never once believed that he could possibly be guilty of all the vicious allegations that he had been accused of within the recent past. I firmly believe that he carried with him an air of child-like innocence and that the deep love and admiration he seemed to have for children...and mankind in general...was anything but misplaced.

Michael, my thoughts and prayers go out to you as well as your family today, and I just hope that your troubled soul will now, atlast, be able to find complete and total peace. You will be missed...

Sincerely,

Matt Hanke

The music will always live on!
I remember as a teenager going to my grandma Connie's house and putting the vinyl record of "Off the Wall" on the turntable and listening to all the good music that came from this LP. Just the melodies, harmonies, vocalizing, musical styles were food - no,nirvana! - to this music lovers soul! Music is subjective to the listener, and this listener has always enjoyed his musical abilities. Very honorable mention of course to his videos which changed the way music vids were made!
Had the pleasure of watching vid of "Remember the Time" with the Egyptian theme as well as others, on BET last night on June 25. (Good to see black people associated with Egypt - imagine that!) Of course, the Masterpiece - "Thriller" - was played and enjoyed!
I will always remember the musical legacy he left on the world.
Legendary and Visionary indeed.

Michael was a sad, lonely man. suffering from post-traumatic stress, low self-esteem. Michael became a product not a person @ a young age, not properly nurtured. His survival depended on pleasing everyone with his artistic talents. Michael tried to live his lost childhood through other chilren, that too proved to be humiliating & he suffered. His monkey was the closest thing to a human that would truly love him unconditionally. Michael unable to drop out of sight began to change his entire look to hide. Now I hope he finds peace in thet beautiful never-land he searched for. No more band aides must be placed on his wounds. People such as I may say we loved Michael, but no one really knew who he was he lost his identity long ago. Who was the thief, life itself. Good-bye michael you made us so happy. Sorry we could not do the same for you .

Michael Jackson is linked to over 90% of positive memories in my life and growing up. This is by far the worst death I could have ever heard of in my entire life. The Jackson family is in my prayers, and my Michael now be with the Lord.

I met Michael in the late 80's. I sold him a pair of shoes. He was very nice and signed an autrograph for me and had one of his bodyguards bring me a autograph picture (which I still have both to this day). I was so nervous that I accidentally gave him two left shoes when he left!! One of his people called the next day and came back to exchange the shoes for the left and right. I told him to please tell Michael I was so sorry and that I was just nervous and the guy just laughed and said that Michael understood. Someone came back to exchange the shoes for the correct ones and I saw him wearing those same shoes on Arsenio Hall that same weekend. I will never forget meeting and talking with him. He was a gentle and kind soul and I cry even now thinking about our meeting as he always touched my heart from that moment on. I never could beleive all of the negative things that occurred as I met the man and he just didn't seem like he could ever hurt a fly. God bless you Michael. I love you n rest in peace. The hard times over the last 15 years are finally over for you and you are finally at peace.

I grew up to your music. I danced to Thriller and did it well. I owened the famous glove and jacket. I own every album. I cried yesterday all night long as many of us did. Michael was a great musician and person. To the jackson family my heart weeps. I am going to miss MJ. May you find your peace and happiness that you may have never found in life. May god walk hand in hand with you and show you the true love of his angles cause you are now one. Thanks for the life lessons and memories that will remain in your music.

I was one of those Jackson 5 groupies from age 10 to 16. When I was 12 yrs old in my hometown of Nashville, TN, a couple of friends and I sneeked into a hotel until the Jackson 5 came out. I did not get to get Michael's autograph but I did get Jermaine's. When I touched him that day, I did not know that I had just met the future King of Pop. I cried thinking of that memory and many others. My prayers are with the family. Michael will be deeply missed on earth but will be joyous in heaven.

I was like many, in shock at the news of Michael Jackson's passing. I didn't realise how upset I was til our local channel started doing it's tribute, taking all Michael Jackson requests.
At the age of 40, there has been no period of my life that doesn't have some memory of Michael Jackson. My cousin taught me at 8 how to dance cool to the lp "Off the Wall", I danced at school on stage to "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough", I watched the Jackson 5 cartoon, I waited all day for MTV to premier "Thriller", watched him on American Bandstand, and on and on, so many memories which all came rushing back hearing various songs last night. Weather it is "Gone Too Soon", "Heal the World", "Man in the Mirror", songs that make you want to make a change and difference...or "You Are Not Alone", or "Butterflies" you may be snuggling to..or "Off the Wall", "PYT", "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough", "Can You Feel It" that makes you want to get up and boogie..no one can deny he was an amazing soul and humanitarian.
I remember buying and trading posters in Tiger Beat and Teen Beat on the bus, kids attempting to dance like him wearing the glove in school, seeing him moondance on Montown's 25th anniversary to Billy Jean...People my age can relate as we lived the phenomena.
I feel so sad for his children.
I hope the best for them and hope Michael is finally at peace.

I remember Michael best starting from "Thriller". Billy Jean was my favorite. When he did that "Moon Walk", I remember how everyone just went bananas, but that's who he was. He was just an original; and perfectionist at his craft he was SO great at.

I have so many wonderful memories of him and although I never met him personally, you could tell from his actions and through his music how sweet, kind, gentle, and giving a person he was. That's what I respected the most about him.

The world has lost a genius, an icon, a legend. He will be imitated, but NEVER duplicated! He was one of a kind.

I just want to send my sincerest condolences to the Jackson family and pray that GOD will provide you all with comfort and give you the strength to get through this tragic loss.

GOD BLESS

I will never forget the first song i ever heard of him. It was an old song, I can not even remember how old Michael Himself was. But it was "Ben" I could relay to this song as if where my own emotions. I too was like lonely and i got my strenght and the ability to fight my tears, and then after the fight i would listen to the song and cry, with no one else to see but, in my mind, only Him.. Rest in peace Michael. And for your children and Family and friends. He will always live on.. RIP King of Pop.. live forever and a day without our hearts.

Michael has always been part of my family, part of my soul and heart. I feel great emptiness right now. I feel like part of me is gone, I don't know how am I get over this. I feared this day, I knew Michael wasn't always in top shape. The trial took a huge toll on him and he there was so much pressure on him throughout his whole life. People were talking trash and depicting every step he made. He always said he had rhinocerous skin which is true. Lot of people would have lost it. Michael always risen back from every fall, every trouble. This I cannot explain. I believe it was the pressure and stress that killed him. I happy I got to see him perform in Prague and the fact that I actually stood just few inches from him when he arrived to Hotel Intercontinental in Prague. He had so much energy and great smile. I went to support him in Santa Maria for his trial, I went to LA to his 45th birthday celebration. I still can't believe he is gone. His music and his spirit will live forever. He is someone that will never be forgotten. My heart goes out to everyone that loved him..his family, his children, his fans and friends. I am heartbroken.

I have been a Michael Jackson fan for so long I can't remember not being a fan. I saw him on concert with the rest of the Jackson 5 when I was 6 years old. I'm from Ohio so we were at the Richmond concert hall in Cleveland, it has a round stage so you can see everything. I was so excited! I put on my prettiest little dress and I was sitting with my mom's friends' teenage daughter. Well, Michael in is orange sequence comes down the aisle we were sitting on and we were on the end! He reaches over my head and shakes her hand. I remember looking up and being that close to Michael Jackson. If I had not been so stunned I would have reached up and touched his face, he was that close to me. I will always remember that moment, always. 16 year old Michael. That was the most incredible experience. And I still love him and I'm 40 years old. When I celebrate my birthday, the following week I celebrate his birthday. I never forget how old he is because his birthday is exactly 1 week after mine. If my birthday is on Tuesday, the next Tuesday is his birthday. So I always have a drink or something fun on his birthday too. I was planning to go to the last curtain call concert and it just breaks my heart that some people will never see this man in concert. He was incredible! Amazing! I saw grown men cry when we went to the "Bad" concert. Grown men, crying like school girls. He was that amazing. Th energy of his performances was just mystifying. To be in the same room with him just does something to your insides. I can't explain it, but Michael Jackson had something that most performers only have a tiny drop of when you see them. He had like buckets full of that special something. I hate that my children won't get to experience that. I will tell them great stuff about him though. And my God bless and keep his children at this time of loss, I can't imagine how hard it must be for them, especially since they are so young. And for his parents and siblings, God bless them all. I know it is very hard to lose a loved one. My prayers are with you.

One of my favorite memories that involve Michael Jackson are watching the Thriller video as a little girl and being scared silly. I will never forget my sister's pink dress that had a silver glove on it. I will never forget cleaning the house and listening to his music and turn up the volume when Man in the Mirror came on! I am deeply saddened that we have lost such a tremendous talent and that I will never have the chance to witness MJ's talent in person. His music and legacy will live on and his goodness done in the world will prevail. I love you Michael and thank you for providing the soundtrack to my childhood.

I have listened to Michael from the time i was a very small child to this day. Michale in my eyes will always be a The King of Pop. No matter what anyone has to say about him. Yeah so he did not have the greatest of lives. But that never stopped him from being the person that he was. Yeah so he was accused of doing do bad things. But if people will remember correctly he was aquitted.Michael in my eyes will always be who he was. He will never be forgotten and always will be loved. My Deepest Sympathies go out to his family in their time of need. Michale is now at peace and performing for his god. With love.

Gone too fast could not be stopped

I've been a fan of yours since I was a little girl, and the purity in you captivated me even at such a young age. I was barely four years old when Free Willy came out and I heard your song "Will You Be There"... I'd sing that song for everyone to hear at the top of my lungs. I can still remember standing in the middle of my grandmother's living room singing with such conviction and being so proud at knowing all the words! (I'd do the humming and the snapping and everything!) Since then I've been singing all of your songs. Michael, you have a light in you, the brightest, most beautiful light.. and now you're in Heaven illuminating. My prayers go out to your children, family and friends. You will be missed. I'll keep singing "Will You Be There" if you promise to always listen. Rest in peace. I love you, Michael.

I am stunned, shocked, and my heart is deeply saddened at the passing of the Legend Michael Jackson.

I am but two years older than Michael and grew up singing and dancing to his songs. I never thought I would see this day happen.

Michael is and will always be the larger than life entertainer and consummate professional. The world will never see the likes of Michael Jackson again. Michael's music will live on to immortality.

My own son Michael, grew up listening to Michael's hits of Billie Jean and Thriller. My son was but five years of age and would put on his precious album of Michael Jackson and sing and dance all afternoon to his Idol.

The passing of Michael brings a depth of emotions and memories I will have forever.

Rest in Peace Sweet Michael and know how much you are loved by all of us.

Humanity has surely suffered a great loss.

But the Heavens above are basking in the glow of his love and no there truly is no other brighter star than his by far.

Michael Jackson will truly remain and live in the hearts of individuals world-wide.

He will always be remembered as God's instrument in the divine purpose of life as he gave so very generously of his love and affection for the world.

Rest in peace Michael.

And The Jackson Family be comforted and strong in the belief that God is with You and your loved one to all eternity.

what can you say that hasn't already been said? That here's a man who was a definitive legend of his time and in the world. when I heard of his death, I WAS SHOCKED AND DEVASTATED! I can't believe this actually happened. since the age of 6, i have listened to his music, seen his dance routines, watched him perform and heard the great/sometimes painful stories he told. Whether they were about anything but growing up, he inspired millions and redefined a generation of entertainment for the next few thousand years. It hurts me so much to see you go, especially like this. I will miss you and forever be fondly of your legacy on stage. Farewell Michael Joseph Jackson.

I cannot believe that this is happening. I heard the news at work that he had suffered a cardiac arrest and was in the hospital. Literally thirty minutes later I saw on the news that he had died. It was like an entire piece of my childhood had been taken from me. I grew up with Michael Jackson, being 44 myself. Aside from all the bad things, one cannot deny that Michael Jackson was an icon. I hope that the press will let him rest in peace, and not just dish dirt about him. Just remember, he was someones son, someones brother, someones Uncle, someones father. RIP my friend.
