Is it more than a premonition for Michael Jackson?

From Jacksons 5 to King of Pop
The early seventies of my life was mostly spent in radio listening. The Jacksons 5 dominated our home during Christmas. Even when I entered high school in the eighties, Michael Jackson's music dominated our lives. From 'Thriller' to 'Billie Jean', my classmates and I were always mimicking his moves, from moonwalk to struts.
Those years were also the start of dance revolution that gave way to more daring moves like break dancing. MJ became the King of Pop around the world.
From the hair style, attire to fancy gadgets and blings, MJ was so overrated that his young and adult fans can't get enough.
Coming to the Philippines
In the last years of the 90s, Michael Jackson visited and performed in the Philippines to quench the thirst of his Filipino fans. Posters, shirts, CD albums and other memorabilia grossed much money to small and big businessmen in the local scene.
It was a memorable thing that MJ did to his Filipino fans. Almost all his songs from his childhood until he became a solo artist were memorized by his fans by heart. His concert was a manifestation that he became a part of his fans.
The World without Michael Jackson
