Rest in Peace Michael Jackson

Today is one of those moments in history we will never forget. Say what you want about the man, but he was undeniably the MOST talented man to ever entertain a crowd. His death has shocked the WORLD. I woke up from a much need nap to text messages, ims, and facebook messages asking me to confirm the news that Michael Jackson was indeed dead.
I am at a complete loss for words. Those of you that know me personally know, that rarely happens. I have been a MJ fan since the moment I walk. My older sister and I used to tape his videos off MTV and learn the moves. I am sure thousands of others have done the same thing. To this day, I can not hear "Thriller", "Beat It". or "Remember the Time" without busting a move.

My generation has not experienced a decade without Michael Jackson, it is hard to believe we now will. This morning my fellow producers and I along with morning anchor, Tonya Francisco, were discussing Jackson's Invincible album. I thought it was the hotness ... the others not so much. Its hard to believe just hours later, we would be reporting that the man died from a cardiac arrest.
In my opinion there would be no Usher, Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown (yeah, yeah i know), etc without this man.
I am sadden by the fact that I never got to see him live in concert. I think he would have been the only celebrity I probably would have cried in front of if I met and been shocked silent by his awesomeness..
I could go on and on about my love for Michael Jackson. I am updating my iPod right now to only MJ songs. I am so sad...

For now watch this videos and leave your comments on this blog.

I think the thing that saddens me most when we lose our best and brightest stars is that we don't celebrate them enough while they are living, breathing, creating and inspiring. We go all out when they pass away. Death should not be the event that reminds everyone of your unquestionable importance to us all. "Off The Wall" introduced me to real music and I thank him for that. It was more than my 2 year old mind could handle at the time but I appreciated it nonetheless. I pray that he has found the peace that he couldn't find here on Earth. Be Blessed Michael!!!
