So why ? Why is Michael Jackson my inspiration ?
He grew up in a broken home with an abusive father. He spent his whole childhood traveling the world going state to state city to city for a tour, but he didn't break down, he loved music. He loved his fans. He was gifted from the start with an excellent voice and performing skills. I watched the story of the Jackson 5 on tv over and over again and was wowed at the strength he had. Michael Jackson was a gift to the world with the hit songs and amazing dancing. The way his music made people feel and how his masterful choreography made people want to get up and dance. He captured the audience during concerts He had talent, creativity, and oh so much more. He influenced most of pop stars today incluing Chris Brown, Usher, Justin Timberlake, Ne-yo, etc., but no, thats not all why I admire him so much. Michael was a humanitarian. Yes, he was a true example of a humanitarian. He cared so much about our world, our earth. His music showed it. Heal The World, We Are The World, Earth Song and Man In The Mirror were so touching. Get up and make a change! He also showed it through his deeds. He visited orphanages and children who didn't have homes or foods or families and helped them. Spent his money, did whatever he could. He wanted to change the world for the better and vowed to do so through music and charity. Unfortunately he fell victim to those who took advantage of his kindness. They humiliated him publicly and slowly ruined his spirit. He was accused of false statements. I truly feel bad for him. Another thing I admire about the king of pop how deeply he cared for his children. He loved kids, and he was a great father. As he said, "In a world filled with hate we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust we must still dare to believe."-Michael Jackson.
