  1. 1. MICHAEL JACKSON<br />THE KING OF POP<br />1958-2009<br />
  3. 3. M<br />..<br />ichael Joseph Jackson was an American recording artist, dancer, singer-songwriter, musician, and philanthropist. Referred to as the King of Pop, Jackson is recognized as the most successful entertainer of all time by Guinness World Records. His contribution to music, dance and fashion, along with a much publicized personal life made him a global figure in popular culture for over four decades. The seventh child of the Jackson family, he debuted on the professional music scene along with his brothers as a member of The Jackson 5, then the Jacksons in 1964, and began his solo career in 1971.<br />
  4. 4. THE JACKSON 5<br />The Jackson 5, later known as The Jacksons, were an American popular music family group from <br />Gary, Indiana. Founding group members Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael formed the <br />group after performing in an early incarnation called The Jackson Brothers, which originally <br />Consisted of a trio of the three older brothers. Active from 1964 to 1990, the Jacksons played <br /> from a repertoire of R&B, soul, pop and later disco. During their six and a half<br /> year Motown tenure, The Jackson 5 were one of the biggest pop-music<br /> phenomena of the 1970s, and the band served as the<br /> launching pad for the solo careers of their lead singers <br /> Jermaine and Michael, the latter brother later transforming in<br /> his early Motown solo fame into greater success as an adult<br /> artist. <br />1964<br />

  7. 7. ..the Jackson 5 were one of the very few in recording history to have their first four<br />major label singles “I want you back’’, “ABC’’, “The love you save’’ and “I’ll be there’’<br />reach the top of the Billboard hot 100. Several later singles, among them “Mama’s<br />Pearl’’, “Never can say goodbye’’ and “Dancing machine’’, were Top 5 pop hits and<br />number one hits were written and produced by a specialized song writing team known<br />as “The corporation’’; later Jackson 5 hits were crafted chiefly by Hal Davis, while early<br />Jacksons hits were compiled by the team of Gamble and Huff before The Jackson<br />began writing and producing themselves in the late 1970s.<br />THE TOP OF THE BILLBOARD HOT 100<br /><br /><br /><br /><br />WERE TOP 5 POP HITS<br /><br /><br /><br />
  8. 8. ..they were one of the first black teen idols to appeal equally to white audiences, thanks partially to the successful promotional relations skills of Motown Records CEO Berry Gordy. With their departure from Motown to CBS in 1976, The Jacksons were forced to change their name and Jermaine was replaced with younger brother Randy as Jermaine chose to stay at Motown. During these years, they continued to have a number of hits such as “Shake your body’’, “Show you the way to go’’, and “Blame it on the boogie’’. After two years under the Philadelphia International Records label, they signed with Epic Records and asserted control of their song writing, production and image, and their success continued into the 1980s with hits such as “Can you feel it’’, “This place hotel’’, “Lovely one’’, and “State of shock’’. Their 1989 album 2300 Jackson Street was recorded without Michael and Marlon although they did appear on the title track. The disappointing sales of the album led to the group being dropped by their record label at the end of the year. The group has never formally broken up, but has been dormant since then, although all six brothers performed together at two Michael Jackson tribute concerts in September 2001.<br />
  9. 9. 1980s<br />Jackson became a dominant figure in popular music. The music videos for his songs, including those of “Beat it’’, “Billie Jean’’, and “Thriller’’, were credited with transforming the medium into an art form and a promotional tool, and the popularity of these videos helped to bring the relatively new television channel MTV to fame. Videos such as “Black or White’’ and “Scream’’ made him a stapleon MTV in the 1990s. Through stage performances and music videos, Jackson popularized a number of dance techniques, such as the robot and the moonwalk, to which he gave the name. His distinctive musical sound and vocal style have influenced numerous hip hop, pop, contemporary, R&B and rock artists.<br />

  15. 15. PHILANTHORPIST<br />Jackson was a notable humanitarian and philanthropist, donating and raising hundreds of millions of dollars for beneficial causes and supporting more than 39 charities. According to David Winters, Jackson also donated tens of millions of dollars to many children’s charities anonymously, and spent a lot of his time visiting seriously ill children tirelessly going from hospital to hospital meeting these children just to brighten up their lives. When Jackson finished the visits he would ask the hospital nurses and the doctors what was needed at the hospital in terms of equipment for the children and would then make anonymous donations to the hospital to purchase expensive equipment or whatever else was needed.<br />
