I received this info from TMZ: Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a call at his Los Angeles Home around 12:30 p.m. today (Thursday June 25, 2009). When Paramedics got there, Michael Jackson wasn’t breathing so they performed CPR. They never got him to breath again. He died from cardiac arrest. He was taken to UCLA Medical Center. More info will come once we find out more.
We just want to send out our prayers to his family and kids. May he rest in peace. Michael has been through many ups in the past and many downs in the passed 2 decades. But we want to remember the impact he brought to the music industry in the 1980′s. Funny thing, couple of days ago, Long, one of our R1 Sales Rep was watching one of his old video on youtube of Michael doing his moon walk. We forgot all about the “Moon Walk,” after seeing it we were amazed from his great dance moves. But today we are saden by the news of his death. We didn’t believe it at first till we saw more news that it’s true. Michael was only 50.
I was only a kid in the 80′s but remember him well. Who wouldn’t if you lived in the 80′s, he was the King of Pop. Everyone over the World knew and loved him. He was planned to do concerts in London and other places of the World, singing and dancing to his classics. That would of been a great come back for him and I know many people from around the World would love to see the old MJ again. When he’s on television, he captured the Worlds attention either it was good or bad. Even his old music videos, people can’t help to watch because he’s just facinating. I remember 5 years ago, I needed to get something at Fry’s electronics, they were playing his “Michael Jackson’s Greatest Hits” dvd in the front of the store entrance in their big home entertainment display. They had a big screen tv with surround sound. There was at least 20 people standing there watching it, not for the entertainment products, but for MJ. His music brought us great joy and till this day, when they play his music, you can’t help but remember the good times you had when you heard that song back in the days. I still remember when I was in 5th grade, we sang “Heal the World” by MJ at one of our singing assemblies. He is and always will be a music icon. My favorite songs from him was “Beat It,” “Billy Jean,” “Thriller” As big as Elvis was the King of Rock & Roll, Michael is the King of Pop. You will be missed and never forgotten.
