Dear Michael Jackson Fans,
It has been nine years since God called you up to heaven to join the heavenly group of singing angels. It was the day before my sweet sixteen birthdays. My cousin Jazzy and I were listening to Michael Jackson’s music hits and copying every dance move as possible.
All of sudden, my mother shouted, “Michael Jackson is dying!” My heart sunken deep into my chest and anxiety just took over my whole body into panic.
I ran upstairs as fast as I could to my mother’s bedroom to watch the terrifying news on televison. The news did not report about him being dead but did say that he was in a cardiac arrest. I felt a little better, because I had hope that he would fight it and be alright. An hour later, Michael Jackson’s older brother Jermaine Jackson made a public announcement that Michael passed away. My world just couldn’t get anymore dark.
Some of you can judge me as being dramatic, but Michael Jackson was the first musician I ever heard of. He was my first childhood crush. Ever since I was little, I always claimed him as my husband even when he was 35 years older than me. I did not care. Oh yes, I did tell my ex-boyfriends that as well.
So call me Mrs. Jackson…haha.
The next day, I was still mourning on my way to the beach for my birthday trip. That whole weekend and even on the beach, I wore my fedora hat, white sequin socks, and black dress shoes.
Today is Michael Jackson’s birthday and I still cannot believe he is gone. I am here writing this blog post and watching every one of his beautiful and creative music videos. After watching all of his music videos, I will watch his live concert DVDs.
Yes, that is my yearly Michael Jackson birthday tradition. I do not celebrate his death day.
Sometimes I wonder what heaven is like now. I can see it, Michael, Prince, Whitney Houston, and James Brown composing some beautiful songs together for the Lord. When I die, I would love to join their choir. I bet the choir is totally jamming!
If you ask what my top favorite songs from Michael are, it would have to be “Remember the Time”, “Get on the Floor”, and “Human Nature”.
The best album to me will always be Off the Wall, not only the music, but it was my very first Michael Jackson album.
Overall, all of Michael Jackson’s music will always be remembered. He will always be the best musical entertainer in the world. I love you my dear true husband. You will always be in my heart.

Take a look at yourself, and then make a change.” –Michael Jackson.
