Biography

Michael Jackson began his musical career at the age of five as lead singer of The Jackson 5 and made his first solo recordings in 1971 as part of the Jackson 5 franchise. He began a full-fledged solo career in 1979 and formally parted with his siblings in 1984. Since then he has recorded and co-produced the best-selling album of all-time (Thriller, with over fifty million copies sold worldwide), received thirteen Grammy Awards, charted thirteen number-one singles in the US, and sold over 300 million albums and singles worldwide. Michael has been awarded numerous honors, including the World Music Award for "Best Selling Male solo Artist of the Millennium". Michael Jackson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001. Michael traveled all over the world to greet his fans in every corner of the earth and performed in many cities and countries on his massive popular giant world tours.

Michael was married to Elvis Presly's daugther Lisa Marie for 18 months. After that, he married Debbie Rowe, who granted him a son (Prince Michael Jr.) in 1997 and a daugther Paris Michael Katherine in 1998. In 2001 Michael had another son, Prince Michael Jr. II (Blanket). In 1993 and 2003, Michael Jackson faces allegations of child sexual abuse, and was eventually tried and acquitted of these allegations in 2005.
On June 25 2009, on the evening of his comeback tour This Is It, Michael is rushed to UCLA hospital sufferring a cardiac arrest and dies, leaving te world in mourning. Michael is survived by three children: Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince "Blanket" Michael Jackson II.

His music spans many styles, including R&B/soul, pop, disco, funk, rock, and hip hop. His innovations in popular music, and the music video medium have influenced today's popular singers. Even though he is greatly missed, family, friends, celebrities, artists and fans are keeping Michael's legacy alive.

King Of Pop
Sony, 2008

King Of Pop
is a compilation album released in commemoration of Michael Jackson's 50th birthday. The album differs significantly in each country it was released because fan voting was employed to determine the songs for each country's version. Fans in countries where Sony BMG operates national offices were given the opportunity to vote for songs from a list of Jackson's back catalogue to be included in their country's version of the album. Aside from the tracks selected by fans, a megamix of five songs from the Thriller album by Jason Nevins was also included in the pool. The album has been released in a total of 26 countries. Each pool list and release date differed slightly by country. "Billie Jean" is the only song to appear on all versions of the album. The Japanese release featured the unreleased track "Got The Hots".
