    I THOUGHT THIS WAS A LOVELY TRIBUTE - AND FROM A GUY.

    R.I.P.
    Michael Jackson – My tribute.



    I have to confess, I’ve been swept away lately with the news of
    Michael Jackson’s death.. I’ve been staying up every night going online
    to read articles, news stories and clips of the news surrounding his
    death. One of my favourite websites is www.tmz.com where they provide
    the latest updates and inside details, they were the first to break the
    news of MJ’s death by cardiac arrest even before any news publication or
    agency dared to confirm it.
    At this moment, the latest news is that he has a will and he wants
    his mother Katherine to be the guardian of his children and if his mom
    is unable to be the legal guardian, he has nominated Diana Ross as
    guardian. The reports also state that his body will be taken to his
    Neverland ranch for a memorial service on Friday and Saturday. Where his
    body will be buried is still unclear as no decision has been made yet.
    They initially wanted to bury him in Neverland but the laws in
    California do not permit anyone burying a dead body in a private
    property so he has to be buried elsewhere.
    I’ve been so occupied following this story, and I guess I have been
    mourning his loss too. I surprised myself when I broke down in tears the
    day after his death while reading a news artice online. What hit me was
    actually a picture of the front page of a the New York Post in the US
    laid out with a head shot of MJ that filled the whole page and had the
    text “Michael Jackson: King of Pop – DEAD”.

    It was after seeing this picture that his death really sank in.. I
    couldn’t help myself, it felt like a family member had died. The feeling
    was similar to when my grandfather and my dad died. I just broke down
    in tears. Even though I never personally knew the man, Michael Jackson
    was an inspiration to me. The way he expressed himself through his dance
    moves, his music and lyrics, and his messages of unity and peace has
    touched the lives of millions, if not billions of people all over the
    world including me. Even though he had been accused of child molesting,
    he was never found guilty and was acquitted on all charges against him.
    The truth is, in my opinion, it is because of Michael Jackson that
    the entertainment industry in the US has evolved to what it is today.
    His impact on the music industry is so great that many big stars today
    have attributed him as one of their biggest influences while growing up.
    To me, Michael Jackson is an example of the greatness that a human
    being can achieve.
    I’ve been to his Dangerous world tour concert in Singapore. While
    working for Reuters, I’ve covered his History concert in KL, and I’ve
    waited for hours for him at the 1 Utama shopping mall for his arrival. I
    saw how people went berserk when he arrived, rushing and running from
    one corner of the complex to another just to get a glimpse of the star. I
    had to fight through not just his bodyguards but also crazy screaming
    fans to get near him to take his picture. Bottom line is I’ve seen how
    this one man can make people go crazy all around the world. I was
    inspired by his magnitude.
    Michael Jackson has changed the world we live in today. What inspires
    me most is that he chooses to express himself simply. He was just being
    himself throughout his entire life. He didn’t try to conform to
    society, he didn’t try to fit in. He didn’t just live an average life.
    He chose to be extraordinary. And he shared his talents with the
    world. He broke racial barriers in the entertainment world. Before MJ,
    black artists had a tough time making it big. He has contributed so much
    to the world and he did it from the bottom of his heart. Just listen to
    the lyrics of his songs and you will understand this man stood for
    something a lot bigger.
    Michael is now no longer with us, but his legacy will last forever. I
    will always remember him as the catalyst that inspired me to become
    better, to achieve greatness, to pursue my dreams and to be a
    contribution to others.
    I love you Michael. May you rest in peace.
