The King of Pop has died from a heart attack in an LA hospital. Although it may be argued, many believe that Michael Jackson had the greatest impact in music since Elvis, and the Beatles.
Earlier generations will remember him as a child prodigy in the Jackson 5. As the youngest child in the group, he was the most prominent, and his gift only grew stronger as he powered his solo career into super stardom. Not only did he change pop music as we know it, but he had a tremendous impact on the music video industry as well. "Thriller" was voted as the most memorable video by voter's of MTV's show, "The Box".
He leaves behind a legacy that has and will continue to forge the path of music for generations ahead.
Some of his hits include:
- Billie Jean
- Smooth Criminal
- Black Or White
- Beat It
- Wanna Be Starting Something
- Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough
- The Way You Make Me Feel
- Rock With You
- You Are Not Alone

His loss will be mourned around the world, and his death will surely be a controversial subject in the future for those who question his will to escape the public eye.
