American superstar Michael Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana, on August 29,
1958, and entertained audiences nearly his entire life. His father, Joe Jackson,
had been a guitarist but was forced to give up his musical ambitions following
his marriage to Katherine (Scruse). Together they prodded their growing family's
musical interests at home. By the early 1960s, the older boys Jackie, Tito and
Jermaine had begun performing around the city; by 1964, Michael and Marlon had
A musical prodigy, Michael's singing and dancing talents were amazingly mature,
and he soon became the dominant voice and focus of The Jackson 5. An opening act
for such soul groups as the O-Jays and James Brown, it was Gladys Knight (not

1982. A TV natural, he ventured rather uneasily into films, such as playing the

rehearsing for a sold-out London concert "comeback" in July seems uncommonly
cruel and tragic. Millions upon millions of dedicated fans will remember where
they were "the day Michael died".
