The King of Pop entertained us for over four decades, starting out with the legendary group The Jackson Five where he and his brothers reached great success. Jackson was a songwriter, actor, dancer and shared his life with his fans that were more like family to him. His father, Joe Jackson, was reportedly very abusive to the Jackson kids, but Michael believed it made them hard working and successful. Michael was creative and showed that in many of his videos such as “Thriller,” “Remember the Times,” “Scream” and many more. He died in 2009.
