my condolences to the Jackson family, it is a sad day indeed when one of our musical icons has passed. I remember growing up to the Jackson five, we had records of them that we played over and over. It was gr8. RIP wacko jacko.
Wasn't a lover of some of his music but as a mother who just lost a child February 25th may his music forever play on and his soulrest in peace and may the good Lord be with his family at this sorrowful time.
Mother to mother Gloria, My heart is with you and I pray that you find strength in the memories of your child.
They say time heals but I dont think so cause I lost my first son in 2001 and I have not healed. What time does is help you cope so I ask you to give time a chance to help you cope, knowing that you have folks like me and the WST family in your corner.
I do admire your compassion in taking time out even in your grief to offer condolences to MJ's family.
That's the effect Michael had on people.That's the kind of compassion he had in his life time when he helped the poor and gave kids hope and his passing has made people go into reflection mode remembering his inspiring lyrics.
The man dies, but his music lives on.Music is to time indefinite.Greatness is measured by what a man leaves to grow,how he has influenced others by his words,actions and deeds.By this test, Michael Jackson stands as one of the greatest in world music.
My condolences to the Jackson family. My personal thoughts are seeing the Jackson 5 on tv in 1969, and hearing Desperadoes Steel Orchestra playing, "I want you back" in 1970. In January of 1973 I was passing by the old Port of Spain market, and heard a band playing Michael Jackson's "Ben." I got a tabancca, because I was returning to NY the next morning.
during the 2010 carnival season there should be a competiition(some people don't like competition) or concert at a certain venue where steelbands can pay tribute to michael jackson by playing his music. condolences to M.J. family. R.I.P.
