Michael Jackson: R.I.P King of Pop

Yesterday was surely a day the world will remember forever.  June 25th will forever be etched in our minds as the day the King of Pop, Michael Jackson has passed. The world sits today with heavy hearts as we realize our beloved pop icon has gone so suddenly.


MJ was rushed to the hospital yesterday afternoon  after a 911 emergency call from his Holmby Hills home. Michael had suffered cardiac arrest and when the paramedics arrived, he was found with no pulse and was unresponsive.  Sources say that Michael was dead already when help arrived.  He was rushed to UCLA Medical center where physicians tried to revive him, but were unsuccessful.

This news came as a complete shock to the world as MJ had just announced a series of 50 concerts in London’s O2 Arena that was scheduled to begin on July 13th. It was said that tickets were sold out completely in under an hour.


Michael is survived by his three children, Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince “Blanket” Michael Jackson II.

While Michael is gone from the physical world, his legacy is sure to surpass the ages.  While most of his career took off way before the digital world we live in today, MJ had the top five album downloads on iTunes store and seven of the top 10 this morning. In addition, in Amazon.com’s CD section, the top 15 sellers were by Michael Jackson or the Jackson 5. And certainly this trend will continue to remain constant.

Despite all of MJ‘s allegations and repeated attempts by others to tarnish his reputation, he is the true King of Pop and he will live on through his music.
