Today, August 29th 1958, the world witnessed the birth of a boy Child, who grew to revolutionize the world of music.Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009). He dazzled everyone with not just his melodious and inspiring music but his great dance steps accruing to himself a title…. THE KING OF POP thereby making him a Music Royalty, Icon, and the greatest performer of all time. His contributions to music and dance, along with his publicized personal life, made him a global figure in popular culture for over four decades.


ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Jackson's 1982 album Thriller is the best-selling album of all time. His other albums, including Off the Wall (1979), Bad(1987), Dangerous(1991), and HIStory (1995), also rank among the world's best-selling albums. Jackson is one of the few artists to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice. He was also inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Dance Hall of Fame as the first and only dancer from pop and rock music. His other achievements include multiple Guinness World Records, 13 Grammy Awards, the Grammy Legend Award, the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, 26 American Music Awards—more than any other artist—including the "Artist of the Century" and "Artist of the 1980s",
