The earlieast memory I have of MJ were a pair of LA Gear shoes that my dad bought me as a present. They were black high tops, studded with gold pieces with two sets of shoe laces; black and gold. I remember dancing with those shoes while singing "We Are The World". From there, I would grow to love his music and finally buy his album "Dangerous" as one of my very first casette tapes (which I still have). Unfortunately, that's the only album I own but I have his singles on vinyl and compilation vinyls. As a DJ, Michael Jackson's music never failed to get a reaction from the crowd. Dropping "Billy Jean" at the height of the night was my favorite thing to do.
I'm looking forward to his last, unreleased album, "7even". I don't know why MJ never released it but hopefully, I'll get a chance to own another piece of his work.
Rest in peace, Michael Jackson. I will continue to play your music as long as I am a DJ.
