  • My love affair with Michael began in 1969. At the tender age of 14 my heart and soul discovered, along with the rest of the planet, the youngest singing sensation to ever hit the air waves.

    From ABC all the way to This Is It, 40 years later, my obsession is most definitely what some think of as unhealthy. Michael's music is something I'll never get enough of, and I play it from morning until long after I'm sleeping.

    Following this great man over four decades, I feel quite intimate with MJ. Yes I've read too much about him, spend far too much time watching his DVDs, and probably have too many Michael Jackson goodies that I cherish more than my diamond jewelry.

    I'll try to sum up my feelings on the King of Pop:

    The icon - the man - the singer - the songwriter - the entertainer - the most amazing dancer - the humanitarian - the environmentalist - the peacemaker - the giver - the believer - the lover - the father - the legend

    Yes, his love lives forever through his incredible music... a true gift from God.

    Michael Joseph Jackson - August 29, 1958 - June 25, 2009
