As I’ve watched all the highlights of the Michael Jackson Memorial today, I’ve got a few thoughts. No mater what you think about Jackson the man, no one can question just how influential an artist he was. Whether he’s singing with Angels or Dancing with the Devil right now isn’t for me to judge, in fact it isn’t for any of us to judge, I think that’s a little higher pay grade than I have. But his music has been more influential than almost any other artist of the last 50 years.
So as we remember MJ today, lets remember Michael Jackson the artist; the little kid some 35+ years ago; the wonderful dancer and icon of the 80’s; not the cartoon/tabloid Michael of the last 15 years. Let God judge his time on earth as a man, I’ll just admire his music.
Rest in Peace Michael
