Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson died this afternoon of "cardiac" arrest". Say what you will regarding the skin pigmentation, plastic surgery and "little boy" controversies but Michael Jackson was a musical dynamo who began his career as a child musical and TV star. I wasn't the biggest of Michael Jackson fans but I certainly recognize the contribution he made to the world of music and music videos.

Here's a performance back before all the craziness started from when he was about 13 years of age. The song is Ben from the movie of the same name. The song was originally offered to a young Donny Osmond who was unable to record it because he was on tour. RIP Michael.
