A singer. Writer. Actor. Phenomenal dancer. Entertainer. Who is this person? The one and only King of Pop, Michael Joseph Jackson! Born on this day, August 29, 1958 in Gary, Indiana.
I, along with millions, grew up with this icon as a our role model, innovator and just all around awesome person to watch in the entertainment industry. For me personally, art is an inspiration to me regardless of the genre (type) of art. I learn from all of my fellow artists, whether it be in the world of photography, music, entertainment or makeup. . .and the list goes on.
I don't know how to even explain what Michael Jackson meant to me as a kid and continues to mean to me now as an adult. I can say, though, that he continues to inspire and teach me things through his awesome and amazing legacy! His work ethic is one for the history books and speaks volumes to why we still talk about him today and will continue to do so. His work ethic is inspiring. Even though his untimely death was really a blow to the world, I am so grateful that we have "This Is It." If you haven't watched it, I highly recommend it. If you have seen it, maybe it would be worth watching again. So many golden nuggets for success were given to us through this film.
Happy Birthday, MJ!
