On June 25, 2009 Michael Jackson died. When I heard the news I was numb, in shock and saddened. He was only 50. I first saw Michael Jackson on The Ed Sullivan Show in the 1960’s. The Jackson Five they were called, brothers and that talented little Michael.
As the years passed his music and videos became ingrained in our souls. We grew up with Michael Jackson. His image changed but then again so did we. He was a music icon and legend! Michael Jackson gave us decades of music, dance, happiness, curiosity and belief. We idolized this man and made him bigger than life itself. So, today a mountain of a man with a childlike persona has left us.
We compare him to the likes of Elvis Presley, The Beatles and Frank Sinatra. His music will live on as did theirs. So many of our movie stars and musicians have died too young. Lives cut short.
How sad that a man had so much but so little. Michael had money, recognition, fame and in the end died in debt. Taken away in a plain white van and covered in a pure white sheet. No more glamour, lights and crowds. Just the crowds that mourned him. He had controversy, led a life of loneliness, sensitivity and silence. He gave us music but he lived in a silent world with his own personal demons.
Amid all the fame and fortune came the accusations of child molestation. Some of the public still loved him, stood up for him and others crucified him. He was found innocent. He lived with these stories hanging over him. Sad how very sad. I cannot judge this man, it is not for me to say whether he committed such acts. I loved him and his music. Like others that have passed before him, the stories will continue and fans will condemn him or defend him. He was a man just a man. He brought the public joy and so let us remember Michael Jackson for his gifts of music, dance and love. He sang, “We Are The World”. Yes, Michael, we all make up the world and you MJ brought it together in song.

“A bluegrass deity… Stanley has one of the most expressive voices in the history of American song, a craggy tenor equally adept at praising the Lord and expressing heartbreak.” – VANITY FAIR
“Ralph Stanley is like an uncle to us and now that all my uncles are gone, Ralph's singing is even more precious.” – GARRISON KEILLOR
“…easily the most eminent bluegrass singer in the world.” – NPR’S FRESH AIR
