Michael Jackson's birthday

Today would have been Michael Jackson’s 55th birthday. Even though Michael Jackson died four years ago at the age of 50, social media and news outlets have been celebrating the King of Pop’s life.

Below is a montage of some of his most popular videos, and if you’re feeling extra nostalgic, Spotify has a playlist of his music.

      YES how can I forget “You can’t win”–his lower register was off the chain on that one. **Going to check youtube on the others you mentioned now. Thanks!
