  • Unfortunate that you had to go so early. You were a huge influence on not just music, but people as a whole, as well as a humanitarian that strived to help the less fortunate. Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. john7July 31, 2013

    • Yeah I think what a lot of people don't know is just how much he actually gave back to the community. It's too bad we don't have more rich people like him. -seanpAugust 2, 2013

    • @seanp, that's one of the reasons why he was the king ;) -citykidAugust 5, 2013

    • We have lost an icon in our industry and my heartfelt condolences go out to his family and children in this hour of sorrow that they are now going through. He will live on in my memory and most definitely through the music he shared with so many. pat89August 9, 2013

      • Yeah I couldn't have imagined what was going through the Jackson family at that time. Even now, about 4 years later, still hard to accept that he's gone. We miss you Michael. RIP. -LilyLiAugust 12, 2013

      • Michael Jackson was the world's greatest entertainer but more than that he was a great humanitarian and a great, humble individual. My heart is full of tears because of the loss of Michael Jackson. lindaxu0228October 21, 2013

        • Know how you feel linadux, when I first heard about his death I cried, and that's something that I almost never do. -john7December 2, 2013

        • Me too, but I guess that's just the kind of influence he had over us. Amazing -lindaxu0228December 2, 2013

            • @asdf, you're right, time does fly. Definitely doesn't feel like 4 years. -randy45November 22, 2013
