Once upon a time…

Once upon a time

  • My sister had a poster of Michael Jackson on her wall, wearing a lemon-coloured vest over a white shirt and pants.
  • I went to ballet class wearing a glove on one hand.
  • One of my favourite mixed tapes in 1984 had Thriller as the last track on side two.
  • I loved The Wiz, and I remember him performing the moonwalk for the first time and hearing the audience go crazy.

That’s the way I want to remember him- a musical sensation whose influence is still being felt (watch Justin Timberlake and tell me he hasn’t watched a Michael Jackson video).

I hope his family are okay.
