Michael Jackson’s music and entertainment legacy have earned him the title of “King of Pop” around the world. He has become a household name thanks to a long career filled with popular songs, show-stopping performances, and celebrity collaborations. Jackson’s life was not without controversy, but there’s no doubting that he left an indelible influence on music history.
Jackson was born into a musical family and created the Jackson 5 with a few of his brothers. Following his initial breakthrough, Jackson went on to have a solo career, delivering chart-topping records and earning numerous awards.
The star’s famous moonwalk dance was first performed in the 1980s, when he released two notable albums, “Thriller” and “Bad.”
Jackson’s personal life drew a lot of attention, but he was essentially a private person. Jackson had three children during his lifetime: Michael Joseph “Prince” Jackson Jr., Paris Jackson, and Prince Michael “Blanket” Jackson II, who is now known as Bigi. With the exception of a few unusual occasions, the children were usually kept out of the spotlight. Now, the three of them have reunited to once again demonstrate their support for their father.
On Feb. 1, 2022, in New York, all three of Jackson’s children attended the opening night of his Broadway production, “MJ: The Musical.” Bigi wasn’t on the carpet with his siblings, but he was present to express his support. Paris, Prince, and Bigi’s attendance at the musical’s opening night demonstrated how much their father meant to them and how vital it is to keep his legacy alive.
It’s safe to argue that pop music would not be what it is now if it weren’t for Jackson’s musical prowess. Despite the fact that he is no longer with us, his legacy lives on and continues to inspire many fans and artists throughout the world.
Jackson rose to prominence as a member of his family’s band, the Jackson 5. He was a star despite being the group’s youngest member, and Rolling Stone called him a “prodigy,” saying that he “soon emerged as the major draw and lead singer” of the group. Jackson continued to perform alongside his siblings while also producing his own music before launching a full-fledged solo career. Other musical styles impacted the singer, resulting in a more complex sound and pushing him in new directions.
Throughout his career, Jackson made a lasting impression on the entertainment business. He had a string of successes in the 1980s, including “Billie Jean,” “Beat It,” “Thriller,” “Bad,” and “Man in the Mirror.” He began the 1990s with the release of the “Dangerous” album, which included songs like “Black or White” and “Remember the Time.”
Jackson received numerous prizes over his life, including 13 Grammy Awards, six Brit Awards, a Golden Globe Award, and 39 Guinness World Records. In addition to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, he has been inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Rhythm and Blues Music Hall of Fame, and the Dance Hall of Fame.
According to TMZ, on Feb. 1, 2022, all three of Jackson’s children attended the premiere night of “MJ: The Musical.”
Paris and Prince walked the red carpet together and even posed in front of a giant poster of the Broadway show’s playbill illustrations, which included a silhouette of Michael Jackson. Prince donned a black suit and tie with his hair tied back into a low ponytail, while Paris wore a paisley dress with her hair curled in gorgeous waves. Prince previously attended a preview performance of the musical in December 2021, according to Yahoo News.
Despite the fact that Bigi did not walk the red carpet, he attended the premiere to show his support for his father. Paris’ Instagram story, according to Yahoo News, showed her and Prince hanging out together, as well as peeks of Bigi throughout the evening. Another clip from her tale shows the three brothers leaving New York’s Neil Simon Theatre together.
“MJ: The Musical,” starring Myles Frost, is based on Michael Jackson’s life in the 1990s and features some of Jackson’s most famous songs. According to TMZ, the show’s central concept is that Jackson will embark on his “Dangerous World Tour.” The Michael Jackson Estate and Columbia Live Stage collaborated on the musical as well.
Yahya Adbul-Matten II, Spike Lee, Reverend Al Sharpton, Princess Sarah Culberson, and Kenny Ortega were among the other celebrities who attended the event. Several of Jackson’s tours, including the “Dangerous World Tour,” were choreographed by Ortega. Paris also uploaded a photo with her cousin T.J., who is the son of Jackson’s brother Tito, according to Yahoo News.
