Very devastated, I was very devastated. I have a very significant and meaningful memory of the King of Pop. I was one of his biggest fans. As I gazed into my memories, seriously, I could feel my eyes get wet, I teared up at the airport. :(
In 1996, I went to the first concert of my life. Michael Jackson's History World Tour in Auckland, New Zealand. I was only 7 years old, but I had the best time ever. Even though I was very young, I will never forget the magnificence of his performance. I will never forget the high excitement of the cheering crowds. I will never forget his talent and charm as a musician and as a performer. Oh, and I'll never forget the image of my mom jumping and dancing crazily either, that one I actually wish to forget haha.
That day I came home as the number 1 fan of Michael Jackson, carrying a huge book of his biography filled with amazing photos and and begging my mom to let me wear the MJ t-shirts she bought. And even after I grown older, I'd secretly dance in the living room to his songs, pretending the couch is my stage, and my stuffed animals are my fans (When no one's home of course hihi).
No matter what people have said about him, no matter if the rumors were true or not, he will forever be an inspiration. He has given the world the best of his life, and his life is worth to remember by and to be told. He is a legend, and I'm very glad he was a part of my life, he made my childhood fantastic.
Rest in peace, Michael. Thanks for being an inspiration.
