I don't think there is any other person whose name every human on earth would recognize, irrespective of age, nationality, language, and other differences. Michael was, is, and will forever be the only person to reach out like that to the entire human population. His legacy will be immortal because the art he created is timeless.

It'll be loved by people of any century. Love you, Mike. And miss you.

There is no question that Michael Jackson is the most famous and most loved celebrity of all time, and here's why. He was extremely gifted. He could sing, dance, beatbox, write songs, and compose music with unbelievable ease and skill. He had a pure, loving kind heart and personality. He genuinely wanted to help children. He built Neverland for children who were sick and disadvantaged. Children could go to the zoo, enjoy rides, visit movie theaters, and receive food, candy, and drinks absolutely free at his home in Neverland Ranch.

Despite the mainstream media's attempts to destroy him with lies and slander, like calling him a freak, Wacko Jacko, and a homosexual pedophile with no evidence whatsoever, Michael Jackson has been completely exonerated and proven innocent again and again in the court of law, by the FBI, and researchers. Despite the trial, slander, and extortion attempts on Michael Jackson, he never wavered in his love and dedication to the rights and protection of children. He paid for the fees and visited, giving gifts to sick children up until the day he died.

Career-wise, Michael Jackson is the most talented and accomplished artist of all time. He sold over a billion records worldwide. He has the biggest-selling album of all time. The most viewed music video of all time. The most watched interview of all time. He is the most awarded artist of all time. He has the biggest concert attendance of all time.
