Michael Jackson Accomplishments

“People ask me how I make music. I tell them I just step into to it. It’s like stepping into a river and joining the flow. Every moment in the river has its song” (Jackson). This shows that he was a natural at making music and it wasn’t hard for him. Michael Jackson changed the way of music because of his voice, dancing, and fashion. Since Michael Jackson was so good at music he didn’t realize that he was changing the way of the world and he used his voiced to become a global icon.

The police never found any evidence to support the accusation. Later the following year Michael settled the problem with the boy’s family out of court. So after that he married Elvis Presley daughter and then got divorced after two years of marriage. Then his music career started to go down but he made an album called Past, Present, Future, Book I, it included old hit songs and new ones which Scream earned a Grammy for such cool effects for the music video. Then he got accused of molesting a different thirteen year old in 2003. The jury found problems with the statement against Michael Jackson so he was found not guilty on all charges in 2005. So after the second trial of being accused of molesting a child then being found not guilty his reputation was destroyed and his finances were a mess. He became friends with a Prince from overseas and he helped him with bills and invited him to his country. So he went to live with him and he paid for everything and built him a studio for him and in return Michael promised to make a new album for him. Then Prince sued him for not keeping his promise of a new album. He also launched the “UNITY” song, which has so much meaning and the expectation to bring people together.

He would announce that he had one more concert to give his fans. As the tickets go on sell for his Final Concert, it sold out in only four hours. Even though there was bad things said about him, he was still a popular figure and a great singer and a dancer.

He went to the hospital after his heart stopped beating and they tried to do CPR but failed and he
