Michael Jackson 1958-2009

Michael Jackson was a huge part of my childhood. At 5, I was sliding across the kitchen floor in my leather jacket with white tape on the ends of my fingers. It only felt right to pay tribute. Here is a video mix I compiled as quickly as I could. As I watched back over the footage at this later age, I realized what a true icon, inventor, and humanitarian he truly was. He was the greatest performer who ever lived, no more, no less. May he rest in peace.

Don, You've truly honored the King of Pop with this tribute. It's so awesome that I have taken the liberty of posting it on my site for all of my readers to see. I have fully cited all of credits, including a full link back to your blog.

Thank you for this moving reflection...

This video is sick, from front to back. I love using the slide at the beginning. Very fluid. Kick ass!

Let me tell you dude, this is the best tribute yet. You told a fantastic story by combining the songs and love the finish...Brought a tear to my eye about the music from my childhood as well.
Thank you so much, that showed some great talent. I hope you don't mind my sharing this with friends and family.

Thank you for taking the time....
