Goodbye Jacko

The world is mourning for the death of the legendary "King of Pop", Michael Joseph Jackson. MJ died at the age of 50 on June 25, 2009 at 2:26PM.

I was in shock when I received a message from a friend that my idol Michael Jackson died. I thought it was a prank message. So I hurriedly turn on the TV and scout for any news that would answer my doubt. I stopped at Net 25 and my eyes were riveted on TV screen and all ears on it. It was confirmed that my great idol Michael Jackson died last Thursday at Los Angeles.

Believe it. I bought all the albums of him. He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation known for his signature dance moves like moonwalk and high-pitched singing. I can still remember when I first watched his concert from a VHS tape my Daddy brought home when he came back in Philippines from work abroad, I was shouting and screaming in excitement. I was 8 years old that time. A friend of my brother gave me a magazine that covers him. I cut off all his pictures and posted it on the walls surrounding my entire room. Funny but I was totally in love with him up-to my college days. He went here in the Philippines for his world-tour last 1995. I can still remember when my cousin and I plan to sell our VHS player just to watch his concert. Haha. I was so crazy in love with him that time. I promised to myself that if he do another concert here in the Philippines, I won’t miss that chance to watch him.

I was preparing for his comeback concert but all was ended due to this shockingly tragedy of his life.

Goodbye Jacko… you will always be remembered.
