The Jackson 5 debut on Ed Sullivan.
I was only 12 years old, and I could not believe a kid my age could sing like that. I was big fan all the way through my early teen years, and then rediscovered Michael when he released Thriller. Everybody had that album in their collection. I totally freaked out when he moon walked across my TV in 1983.
Those of you too young to remember the old Michael–he had the respect of critics and musicians alike, and his appeal crossed genres–all the way from Pop to Rock to R&B. He influenced a generation of singers, dancers and performers.
RIP Michael. Hopefully, you’ll find some peace now.
