There are many people who changed the world. They are scientists, athletes, actors and musicians. It is a musician that I want to tell you about. He was a great singer,a great dancer and a great composer. He was Michael Jackson, a great person, who will always live in our hearts
Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009) is often referred to as the King of Pop. The most successful artist in the history of pop music, has sold over 260 million albums, countless singles, winner 15 Grammy Awards and hundreds of other prizes.
Jackson sang at a Christmas concert at the age of five. When he grew up he started to sing at the group «The Jackson 5», founded by his brothers . Jackson rose to the national level, and in 1970 their first four singles were on the first line of the U.S. « Billboard Hot 100». In 1973 their family project began to fall, and Michael began a solo career.
His album "Thriller", released in 1982, went down in history as the best-selling album in the world .”Thriller” gave America nine singles. The increased attention to his person was very big, so Jackson spent most of his time in seclusion in his ranch Neverland. During the 1990s Jackson's face has changed a lot, and his skin was completely white.
Michael Jackson died on the 25th of June in 2009 in the result of an overdose of drugs.
I think that he is great because in 2009 he was officially recognized as a legend and an icon of American Music. Michael Jackson has made a significant contribution to the development of popular music, video, dance and fashion.
