People Who Have Contributed to Society………..

So some people loathe the name, others hate the name….but in my opinion that’s their problem…you can’t take away from the man’s contribution..and that’s none other than………Michael Joseph Jackson. Michael grew up in Gary, Indiana and was the 8th of 10 children. His father as we all now…….Joseph Walter Jackson…..was the script one of the family always beating the children into submission….which later caused..Michael to have serious issues..which is another story in and of itself……but the focus here is on Michael’s contribution…….he is the only artist with the best selling album of all time…(next to the Eagle’s Greatest Hits Album…….he did a lot for race relations as well..and thru music showed people the non-validity of some of their strongly held views…he also provide 1,000’s of jobs for all the writers, artists, engineers, and others that were involved in the performance and productions of his albums, events, music, and shows…..even as a kid I remember dancing to Billy Jean….for an elementary school performance…….not only did he make hit after hit, after hit, he donated more money to charity than any other artist…….even in death Michael you’re still great and thanks again for your contributions to society……..I posted a video performance of Michael’s 1993 Superbowl performance….it was amazing…..to this day, I still haven’t seen a performance this great at the superbowl, he was on another level……he mixed performance art with music and social content that was applicable at the time………I believe that’s another reason he had such powerful cross cultural appeal…you can feel his passion….don’t take my word for it….check the clip out…..below and read about the history of Michael Jackson here.
