Michael Jackson The Pop Icon Dies. 1958 - 2009

Michael Jackson “King of Pop” has died, after suffering a cardiac arrest.
The circumstances surrounding his death up to last night is not clear. It is reported that the star was not breathing when paramedics responded to a call at his home in Los Angeles where he collapsed.
The paramedics performed CPR on Jackson and took him to UCLA Medical Centre.
His biggest selling album produced in 1982 “Thriller included songs like Billie Jean and Thriller which remains the best selling album of all times and sld over 26 million copies.
Jackson had a lot of ups and downs in his life, like a case where he was acquitted of molesting a 13 year old boy.
The rock star was preparing for a comeback at a concert in London when tragedy struck. It is thought that the pressure of this preparation may have pushed him over the edge.
It is worth noting here that many top players in the entertainment industry seem to depart this life quite young. Remember Jimmy Hendrix, Bruce Lee, and Bob Marley just to name a few. Not forgetting our own Janine, the calypso monarch from Laborie
Michael Jackson’s departure from this life has left a void in the entertainment industry. The world has lost another Icon.
Farewell my brother
