The King of Pop & the Man with the Moon Walk I've Respected MJ for a while & it's still saddening that Michael isn't here no more! I just wish People would've gave him the Proper Respect and Admiration instead of labelling him and tarnishing his amazing Musical talents & his Legacy! I still bugs me how once he passed away people finally started giving MJ some respect! Certainly he's done controversial stuff but that don't mean he's not one of the best Talents that world has ever witnessed!
Some of my Fave MJ Songs are: Beat it, Billie jean, Black or White, The way you make me feel, Man in the mirror, Bad, Heal the world, You're not alone, Human nature & others - Curti2594
