The King of Pop,
singer/songwriter Michael Joseph Jackson was born on August 29, 1958.
Seventh of a family of nine children, he started singing very early.
In fact, his professional career began at the age of 11 with the
whose famous titles ABC, I'll Be There and I Want You Back are well
known. At the same time, he embarked on a solo career when he was 13
and released his first album, Got to Be There a year later. In the
meantime, he released his second album, Ben, whose eponymous song
earned him a golden Globe for the best original song. The next two
albums were not as successful and it wasn’t until 1979 with his
album Off the Wall
that he enjoyed worldwide success with such tracks as Rock with You
or Don't Stop' Til You Get Enough. In 1982, the album Thriller,
a must-have album that sold 25 million copies in two years, brought
Michael Jackson into
the Guinness Book of Records. It was the time of Billie
It and, of course,
Thriller. In 1987, he went on his first solo world tour with the
album Bad. Then followed Dangerous, HIStory (find the piano score You
are Not Alone, the main track on this album) and Invincible. In
parallel, he released compilations and boxes whose success remains as
important as ever. On June 25, 2009, fans of Michael
Jackson were shocked
to learn of his death.
