We can do this by embedding his music and legacy; what he represented into our children and their children, and many generations to come.

You may not know this but he lives through all of us. Michael Jackson will never die. And it's our job to make sure he doesn't

Truly the greatest that has ever lived. No one will top him ever because he was raw talent.

Miss him!- But Ive noticed alot of other artist are being slammed for drug usage and no one says anyhing about him(not being negative) because I Love Him!- But its very obvious! But to me its like trying to defend a call girl against being called a prostitute. They're both selling " You know what!- Whether feenin on the street corner or Being able to afford your on life line! both have a problem!- MISS MICHEAL DEARLY! JUST ASKING!!!

My heart breaks when I reflect on his life. He was so used and manipulated by almost everyone because of greed. He was robbed from the beginning by those who should have protected him.

Michael had dem pipes fa real! His voice was so pure, donnie osmond wasnt even close to his level. Long live the king of pop!
Rip.

really love this song!one of my favorites.

For uptempo/danc e music Michael was king in the 80s but as a kid he had some serious pipes. When he hits the high notes on this track it's breathtaking .
Report as inappropriate
He went through life so fast no one could stop me like the Iron Horse with drugs! I can stop dwelling of the pain, it's just the pain that won't go away. The High One has many Stars and they all have their positions and their different looking, moving at Top speeds! The space beyound the beyounder or Yeah! and science conjecture with itty bitty minds.

Its sad that I wasnt born yet when MJ sang with the Jackson 5. He had a beautiful voice even as a child. I sure am glad as I was born in the 80's to hear his newer music. It all rocks from a child even up to his death. Love you forever MJ. Your in my <3
