Today is Michael Jackson’s 57th birthday. Even though he is no longer with us, we celebrate today for what he did for all of us. I don’t know anybody who wasn’t affected in some way by him.
Personally, I looked up to him as a performer icon. Michael was flawless on stage, innovative in his videos, and made dancing look so effortless. He created the Moonwalk for goodness sake!! When he passed, I cried a little knowing that there would be many imitators but no duplicators. Chris Brown, Ciara, Tinashe, Mario, Ne-Yo… U can all thank Michael for your careers. Actually, I can thank Michael for my career- for inspiring me to try new things, dance from my core, and to stay grounded and innovative.
We love you Michael. Happy Birthday!!
