Top Ten Most Famous People With The Name Michael

My name is Michael so I decided to make a list of the famous people with my name.

The Top Ten

1 Michael Jackson Michael Jackson Michael Joseph Jackson was an American singer, dancer, and songwriter born on August 29, 1958 in Gary, Indiana and passed away on June 25, 2009. He donated (at least) a remarkable 500,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King of Pop (a title given to him by Elizabeth Taylor) or under more.

Michael owns unparallel talent not only in music/dance but also in painting and composing and inspiration to all new artists and people over the world being a better person. His unselfish and unconditional love to the children, the underprivileged people and animals. He paid his greatest effort on the environment protection and against war. All of these made him so well-known in every corner of our world.


The best singer in my opinion. I mean come one isn't he good or not. Sure he takes drugs and died cause of it but that wasn't his fault. In fact everyone wishes he wasn't dead even man in the mirror song was one of the most inspiring songs today. God bless you Michael Jackson

Love his songs.

2 Michael Jordan Michael Jordan Michael Jeffrey Jordan, also known by his initials, MJ, is an American retired professional basketball player.

How can Michael Jordan get only 6% of the vote? He's probably the biggest household name besides Michael Jackson... Who's Michael kitchen?

Michael Jordan is the most legendary basketball player. He should be number 2 and Michael jackson stays at 1.

I did my biography on him, and he is incredible. He was a boy that wanted to win every game he played, and as he grew, he began winning almost every basketball game. - AnimeDrawer

He is awesome

He is also one of who deserving for top 5.

Eight gold medals?! He should actually be ranked at number four or three.

7 Michael Crawford

When I first heard the cast album of Phantom I was amazed that I had never heard his voice before. Then I found out I had in Hello Dolly, but I just hadn't recognized the name. He can convey heartbreak and passion and other emotions with his voice like nobody else.

The creator of the most famous role in musical theatre - The Phantom of the Opera, an icon of West End and Broadway. He is amazing multitalented actor, singer, comedian, writer and true gentleman and philanthropist

Best phantom of the opera ever. An incredible voice and great stage presence.

He is the best in the business ever in the entire world, I would rank him at 1 I would love to sing Opera with him that would be a dream come true. Hannah Victoria Farrell

18 Michael Keaton Michael Keaton

After his break from the acting business, Michael Keaton has come back stronger than ever; starting with Birdman/Riggan Thompson (directed by Alejandro G. Innaritu). He was great as Walter Robinson in the Oscar winning film Spotlight directed by Tom McCarthy. I expect to be great in The Founder just as he was great in Beetlejuice.

Well, Keaton was the best 'Batman' ever! He was the FIRST, he's (the first best after Adam West). He was also very awesome in 'Multiplicity'. I think that he's a great actor and also a great comedian as a person even when he is not acting, (that last part is made up, but I bet he's pretty cool
). Where is he now? Where have all our superheroes gone?
Thanks for the list. I really don't at the moment have another entry for you, but, there are so much more!
I meet a Mike almost every second day, it doesn't mean that they can join the cool club.
