He died today, after going into cardiac arrest, at the age of 50.
Time described Michael Jackson as "the hottest single phenomenon since Elvis Presley."
He has supported more than thirty charities with proceeds from his concerts, more than any other celebrity or entertainer in the world. He has received numerous awards for his songs and albums, and his generosity. His music has changed the world. He has gone too soon, but his music will live on.
The world will miss the King of Pop. We love you, Michael.
