Gary, Indiana (PRWEB) August 14, 2016
Michael Jackson’s influence on the world of music has been as far reaching as the vast oceans themselves. It would be difficult if not impossible to imagine the world of pop music without Michael Jackson. In a culture where to copy another is to demean oneself, to copy Michael Jackson, to in some way come close to reaching his level of artistry in song or dance is instead an achievement.
Michael Jackson’s songs were special because he was special. From his voice sprang hope and his music brought forth the unconditional love that united a planet full of Michael Jackson fans of all ages, colors, genders and faiths.
So vast, is his legacy which climaxed with Thriller (which is in many ways the greatest album of all time) to this day many of the our greatest music artists proudly declare themselves Michael’s Disciples:
The Weeknd, Usher, Justine Timberlake, Neyo, Kanye West, Chris Brown, Jason Derulo, Maroon 5, Janet Jackson. The list is literally unending.
