Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson was born on August 29, 1958. He was the seventh of nine children born to Joseph and Katherine Jackson. (Rebbie, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, LaToya, Marlon, Michael, Randy, Janet).

Michael’s success started with him becoming the lead singer of The Jackson 5; In later years they became The Jacksons. It was in the 1980’s that Michael decided to leave The Jacksons and focus on a solo career.

Michael’s career is unparalleled in the history of music business, and so is the media’s never stopping hunger for gossip about him. Michael’s accomplishments in the 1980’s made him the most influential musician of the decade, a living legend, famous all over the world.

Charity

Michael Jackson was a true humanitarian from his heart, ever since he was a little boy. His mother, Katherine, remembers how he, as young boy, he set up a little candy shop around the back of their house, and spent his weekly allowance on candy to give away to the neighborhood kids. This would turn out to be just the beginning of a life devoted to caring about children and showing them unconditional love.

Kaherine Jackson also remembers how she and Michael, still being a young boy at that time, watched a documentary on tv one day about the less fortunate children in Africa that brought him to tears. Michael turned toward her and said, “One day, mother, I am going to do something about this. I know I can’t heal the world, but I can help.”

Michael has definitely kept his promise, not only toward the less fortunate children in Africa, but towards thousands and thousands of needy children all over the world. During his entire life, Michael Jackson was a most generous person, not only sharing his wealth, but also his time and his warmth.

Michael wanted to put smiles on children’s faces to make them happy. He paid attention to hospitalized children, children suffering from cancer, orphans, war victims, and disabled or disadvantaged children; just every needy child he could reach out to. He would read or tell them stories, play with them, teach them how to play chess, present them with books, toys, records, video games, concert tickets, or sometimes, just give them some affection. He made it his habit to visit orphanages and children’s wards of hospitals everywhere he went. He wanted to warm all these children’s hearts by coating them with love…his unconditional love that came straight from his heart. Never ever did Michael ask for anything in return.

As humble as Michael was, he NEVER choose to seek publicity while visiting children in hospitals and orphanages. He preferred to keep it private since he was doing these things from his heart as a human being, not because he happened to be Michael Jackson.
