Michael Jackson was born on August 29th, 1958 and was a singer, dancer, actor, songwriter, and record producer. His contributions that he made to the world of music and dance made him worthy of his title – the King of Pop. In 1964 he had his musical debut as a member of The Jackson 5, which consisted of him and his older brothers Jackie, Jermaine, Tito, and Marlon. In 1971 he began his solo career, but it was not until the early 1980s where Michael Jackson started to become a renowned and dominant figure in the popular music industry. Not only did he take his music and dance to the next level, but he is also credited with changing the game when it came to music videos. Music videos for songs such as “Thriller,” “Billie Jean” and “Beat It” transformed the media into a pure art form and were even credited with breaking down racial barriers. Honestly, Michael Jackson was a music legend.
