He was such a kind and giving man always thinking of helping others than himself. There will never be another Micheal Jackson as long as we shall live.
I hope that the media will let him rest in peace and leave the children alone .

It is surprising to know that a lot of people don't really know what Michael represented, & most stunning is the American public. Anyway, now i believe for sure that a prophet is never valued at home. Well, I live in Nigeria and would like the world & Americans especially to know that MJ was not one of the best but simply the best. He could easily be referred to as "the brand" because from the get-go, he branded himself; hair, hand gloves, finger tapes, sleeve band, white socks, jumping pants, etc. U just can't beat that! In his songs and lyrics, he enveloped his dance & that's why u just can't do an MJ's song without wanting to do the dance (that's if u can) From a distance, if u hear eee-hee, u'll definitely know the artist is MJ. He was the stage, & that made him to be the stunt we all look forward to in his performances. In the 80's MJ was the 2nd most popular earth being only after Jesus Christ, & even in his days of no release, his fame still moved like the whirl wind. Now, let's not forget that though we've seen charisma in a lot of people, MJ has the most fascinating effect on all of us. He only could blow a kiss & many would faint, he only could say i love u & it would drop many on their knees. if u can't call that charisma then please the word just doesn't exist. I have seen music artistes been presented with various awards but forgive me if i'm wrong, i've never seen a musician been presented an award by the president of the United States of America; only MJ. It might be needless talking about his dance cos if u don't know about that, u shouldn't be reading this at all. Thanx for letting me share this with u.

Michael, you have been, you are and always will be number one. No single person has ever performed to the magnitude that you have nor have they ever given so much to so many needy causes and people. You are the best Michael and no one can take that away from you. I am just so sad that the media can get away with what they have when it comes to you. However, we have shown them that they certainly did not change the minds of your true fans. May God Bless you Michael and I pray for your children every day.
I loe you most.

Michael Jackson was so very humble and respectful of humankind. I just cannot believe how badly he was treated by his own countrymen. He was so gentle and he seemed to genuinely express his thanks for the support of those who truly loved his work. I will always remember his kindness and his authentic efforts to make this world a better place.

There should be another entry in the Guinness Book of Records for Michael Jackson as the humanitarian most vilified by the press.
We can only guess how much more Michael Jackson would have given to charity had he not been taken down.
Nobody has attempted to hold to account the media barons who made fortunes from Michael's downfall or asked how much they in turn give back to our communities.
They made sure we were distracted with the circus they made of Michael Jackson's life while their pals in high places did as they liked.

He was the ultimate entertainer and the most exciting to watch.

He created that magic and mystery around him. A beautiful, soothing voice to listen to and an electrifying presence to watch! The only artist I can think of who appealed to those of ALL ages – skin-tones – religions - races – cultures and so fourth. He was the best!

He was a clever business man, too. Research it!

...And away from the stage...a kind, loving, gentle, charitable, compassionate, passionate, peace-loving, peaceful, spiritual, humble soul. A beautiful soul, indeed!

I think of him *Every *Single *Day! I will miss him for the remainder of my days on this earth.

Sweet dreams, Michael X
