Michael Jackson, the "King of Pop," would have turned 59 years old on Aug. 29, 2017, if not for his tragic death on June 25, 2009.
Fans all over the world continue to celebrate the life and career of Jackson, one of the most iconic, successful and beloved artists of all time.
Jackson had one of the most extraordinary careers in entertainment history. In fact, he had two, one as a member of the Jackson 5, the other as a solo artist. He has stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame celebrating both. And he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, once alongside his brothers and once on his own.
His birthday has always been an occasion for his fans, but it has been even more special for them since his passing. On the occasion of his birthday, the world remembers the lasting legacy of Michael Joseph Jackson.
