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.
Otherworldly...that's Michael Jackson

Grace and elegance - two words forever intertwined with MJ in my mind.

Graceful and elegant even in a simple slacks-and-shirt.

Or a jacket and pj bottoms.

Or the Thriller photographer's borrowed white suit.
Or soaking in sweat onstage.

Or flat on the floor with only a fabric drape across his naked body...

Now THAT is what I call ATTITUDE!
Michael Jackson has unbeatable style.

While many people are aware of Jackson’s tremendous commercial success in terms of units sold or concert attendance records broken, serious analysis of his art has perhaps been impeded by these very facts. The question goes something like this: is it possible for great art to be wildly popular, and embraced on such an enormous scale? Is it possible to be a serious artist, and also be the “King of Pop”?

Apparently it is. Efforts are now being made to understand both the meaning and the impact of Michael Jackson’s art. Examples in the past few years include symposia at Duke, Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Columbia College Chicago, Schomburg Center, the Louvre, Lincoln Center and other institutions of learning. Michael Jackson, as well as Beethoven, Franz Liszt, and Jimi Hendrix were discussed as part of a presentation about virtuosity in music at the Louvre. His music has received classical treatment by symphonies around the world. “Thriller” is the only music video to be selected for the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress, and Jackson himself is likely to remain the only pop star inducted into the Dance Hall of Fame--alongside other distinctive architects of American dance heritage like Astaire, Graham, and Balanchine.
Michael Jackson, unlike, say, the Beatles, is an American original and made a supreme contribution to popular music as high art.
