Michael Jackson was the greatest entertainer of our time and impacted millions and millions of people around the world. Artists can only imagine having a sliver of the success or the meaning that Mr. Jackson had. I just want to offer my sincerest condolences to the Jackson family. I can’t believe that he is gone. It definitely hasn’t sunk in yet. One thing is for certain though- Michael Jackson will NEVER be forgotten. Irreplaceable, innovative, genius, captivating. Even posthumously, Mr. Jackson will continue to inspire people everywhere. Lets all remember this incredible man not for the scandals that may have surrounded him, but for the remarkable contributions he made to music and pop-culture as we know it. He will be GREATLY missed.
