REMEMBERING MICHAEL JACKSON: 25 JUNE 2018.
There is approximately 68 million Google search for Michael Jackson when he died 50 years young in Los Angeles, California today. Next, to Elvis Presley and John Lennon, he was one of the most celebrated and talented singers, selling about 750 million albums worldwide.
He started singing as a child of 5 and in 1964, joined his brothers to form the Jackson Five and later Jackson Brothers but when Michael went solo, he became an international sensation.
Jackson won 13 Grammy Awards, 13 number one singles in his career, more than any other male artist in the Hot 100. One album Thriller (image), sold about 50 million copies.
He was a pop icon for four decades, married twice - once to Elvis Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie - and his private life, deemed by many as weird, was shared by all. He left behind 3 children.
Michael Jackson performed 3 concerts at the National Stadium in Singapore, on August 29 and 31, 1993 and another on October 25, 1996, during the HIStory Concert. The stadium packed an average of 40,000 fans (approx: 90,000 and 30,000) from all over South East Asia and beyond.
"Heal the world/Make it a better place/For you and for me/And the entire human race/There are people dying/If you care enough for the living/Make a better place for you and for me..."
