Shocking Death of an Icon

Colin Smith Colin Smith Profile: Colin Smith

Since I work for a news media outlet I thought that I would comment on this news. Michael Jackson’s untimely death. Everyone knows about Michael and all the controversy that has surrounded him for many years now. whether or not you are a fan, a hater, you believe he has been guilty or innocent of all the crimes that he was accused of, all must admit that he made is mark on the world though his music. He entertained us with music, lyrics, and dancing. He could move like nobody else and so many artists today try to imitate him in so many ways. I do not think that I have ever met anyone who has not liked at least one of his songs or videos. How can you not be a fan of Thriller? I remember being very young, 7 or 8, and I was at a rollerskating rink when the video made its premiere. All skating stopped and everyone sat down in front of a big screen and watched the video. Who else has had the world stop to pay attention like that? Not even all Presidents have had the world listen like that.

I am not going to voice my opinion about him as a man but as an entertainer he was one of the best. He has influenced so many in so many ways, and I do think he will be sorely missed. My thoughts go out to his friends and family and all I can say is “Do You Remember the Time”.
