Michael Jackson is the King of Pop music. When Michael Jackson was nine years old,
he started being the lead singer of the Jackson 5. The Jackson 5 also consisted of his older
brothers Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, and Marlon. (Jackson: 8) The Jackson 5 had many songs.
Michael Jackson’s first solo album is called “Off the Wall,” and it first released in 1979.
The songs on “Off The Wall” include “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough” and “Rock With
You.” His following albums include “Bad,” “Thriller,” and “Dangerous.” Michael had a 2
CD album called “HIStory Past, Present, and Future Book 1,” and it first released in 1995.
The first CD has his most popular songs from the past. The second CD has his newest
including “Scream,” which is a duet with with his younger sister Janet Jackson, “You Are
Not Alone,” which was a 1996 Grammy Awards nominee, and “Childhood,” which is the
theme to “Free Willy 2.” Some of his past songs include “Black And White,” “Billie Jean,”
“Thriller,” “Beat It,” “Remember The Time,” and “Heal The World.” Michael Jackson has
been famous for so long that he has won many awards, especially Grammys.
Michael Joseph Jackson was born on August 29, 1958, in Gary, Indiana. His Mother’s
name is Katherine and his father’s name is Joseph. Michael’s older siblings are Maureen,
Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, La Toya, and Marlon. (Jackson: 8) Michael’s younger siblings are
Randy and Janet. (Jackson: 8) Janet is a famous pop music star just like her older brother
Michael. Tito’s sons Taj, Taryll, and T.J. are a famous music group called 3T. The
Jackson family lived in a small home in Gary, Indiana. Michael’s mother Katherine was
crippled by polio since she was a child. (Jackson: 12) When she was a child, she partially
recovered from polio when many died from the disease at that time. (Jackson: 12)
Michael has been on his “World Tour” for a few years. Lately, he has to wear
something over his face during concerts because of his skin condition called vitiligo.
(Carlson: 6) In 1984, Michael and his brothers from the Jackson 5 reunited for their
“Victory” tour. (Anonymous: 519) There were many different kinds of people at his
concerts, all Michael Jackson fans.
Michael Jackson has had many interviews. Some are true, and some are trash. There
have been interviews on him in magazines from People to Enquirer. Michael has been on
many television shows and networks, including MTV and VH1. He has been interviewed
by newspapers worldwide. Lately, most interviews have been about him being a
father-to-be and his recent marriage to Debbie Rowe, the mother of his child. Past
interviews have been about his marriage in 1994 and his divorce in the summer of 1996
from Lisa Marie Presley, Elvis Presley’s daughter. Another subject of his past interviews
have been about his alleged rape a few years ago.
That was my report on Michael Jackson. I enjoyed writing it. I hope you enjoyed
reading it! Some additional information I’d like to add is that that Jackson 5’s first
recorded song is “Big Boy,” wich was the beginning of their stardom. (Jackson: 42)
