Born with a gift and purpose to bring to the world joy, happiness, love, care, compassion, and humility using song and dance.

He grew in stature from chocolate cherub to vanilla wafer with his sweetness.

Add a little innocence, silliness, and lots of intellect. And not to forget the subtle sensuality. Because he was human, sadness and loneliness often accompanied him.

One of the greatest legends known as the "King of Pop." Was born on August 29, 1958 and passed away on June 25, 2009 due to "cardiac arrest." May he rest easy because music will never be the same.
