Michael Jackson in the 80's seemed to make the music industry what it was at the time. I think almost every child male or female from around the world wanted a Michael Jackson jacket and a glittery glove. I remember listening to my mother's Jackson Five records and then she had a copy of the Off the Wall record also. I myself still have a copy of Thriller cd in my basement. I also have some of his music in my iCloud now. I remember learning how to moon walk and trying to do the lean from Smooth Criminal video. He has influenced countless artists while he was alive and even today. To name a few Usher, Beyonce, Sheryl Crow, and R. Kelly. His influence ranged through out all genres of music from country to rap. I recently heard a song by the artist The Weekend and the DJ said that he sounded just like Michael Jackson. I listened to the song, he did sound very similar to Michael Jackson. I also remember seeing one of his concerts on television, he had all races and genders at his concert enjoying his music.
