All gone too soon. I'm still in shock. Just the other day, I was thinking how great it would be to see one of Michael Jackson's upcoming "comeback" concerts in London. Experiencing great entertainers in all their glory, doing what they do best and what they are so loved for is so invigorating for me. Being part of something so magical can really make you feel alive.

I wonder what will become of the children of "the King of Pop," a man so childlike himself. Regardless of all the scandal that tarnished his name in later years, Michael Jackson's contribution to 20th century music and pop culture, and his ability to entertain are undeniable.

Diana Ross was a very special friend of Michael's. Check out this video from Diana's 1981 television special where Michael joins her onstage for Upside Down.
