1958 - 2009
My heart is truly broken over the loss of Michael Jackson today. I've been watching CNN for the last couple of hours and crying off and on. I remember having such a huge crush on Michael Jackson. I was enthralled by him. I thought he was the coolest person on the planet. When "The Victory Tour"came to Texas, you had to buy 4 packs of tickets. My mom said the 4 tickets were $100.00 and that, at that time, that was a lot of money. We begged and pleaded to go. I got to invite a friend and my brother, Kenneth, got to bring my cousin. We got to decorate our parents station wagon and I remember just being so excited and feeling so cool that I was getting to go see Michael Jackson live! When we got there and the lights came on and Michael was there on the stage, I remember balling my brains out and screaming from the top of my lungs, "I love you Michael"! THE BEST CONCERT! There were fireworks at the end of the show! The entire stadium was filled with an indescribable energy. When we got out of the concert, my parents had huge smiles on their faces. They knew how happy we were and they got to see the fireworks show from outside. They mentioned how electric the vibe was for them, even from the parking lot. They said there were Michael Jackson impersonators dancing and singing! It was fantastic. In grade school I would play the song, "Ben" over and over again and in high school I would listen to "Rock with You", "Beat It", "Billie Jean", "Ebony & Ivory", etc........ in my room on my tape player and just stare at the ceiling. I wore white socks and penny loafers........Just remembering......the glove.....the moonwalk...... We Are The World....so many fond memories. He was truly great. What saddens me so much was the last part of his life and all of the controversy. He was such a lonely man. R.I.P. Michael Jackson!
I think Michael Jackson was really hot in this video! Not to mention it was a great song!
