Dear Michael Jackson,

I think you'll be surprised to receive a letter from a girl, who is from shanghai, China. We were growing up with your song

during our childhood. It was very popular to copy your signature moonwalk on our teenage. There is no doubt that you

are our king of Pop. We will remember the day- June 25th.

You were an American recording artist, entertainer and businessman. The seventh child of the Jackson family, you

made your debut on the professional music scene in 1968 as a member of The Jackson 5. You then began a solo

career in 1971 while still a member of the group and was referred to as the "King of Pop" in subsequent years. Your

1982 album Thriller remains the world's best-selling album of all time,and four of your other solo studio albums are

among the world's best-selling records: Off the Wall (1979), Bad (1987),Dangerous (1991) and HIStory (1995).

In the early 1980s, you became a dominant figure in popular music and the first African American entertainer to amass a

strong crossover following on MTV. The popularity of your music videos airing on MTV, such as "Beat It", "Billie Jean"

and "Thriller"—widely credited with transforming the music video from a promotional tool into an art form—helped bring

the relatively new channel to fame. Videos such as "Black or White" and "Scream" made you an enduring staple on

MTV in the 1990s. With stage performances and music videos, you popularized a number of physically complicated

dance techniques, such as the robot and the moonwalk. Your distinctive musical sound and vocal style influenced many

hip hop, pop and contemporary R&B artists across several generations.

You're not only a King of Pop, singer,entertainer,artist……

You're a great man with love, caring, compassionate. In your whole life, you did a lot of works for charities. and many of

these charities help special needs children. People mentioned you was accused of child sexual abuse in 1993. The

child in this case admitted the charge was fake because of benefit after you died. I knew you felt lonely and helpless

under the pressure of media attack during that time. Now, you will be peace in the heaven and last forever. We will

remember your song, your dance move, your contribution to the society and else.

Not so many people can do the one thing in his life, because people always like changing their mind. Some people still

hold their belief and do one thing in their lives. Dan is one of them, who is the president of Cabrini Connections, which I

worked for an intern during this summer. He contributed his whole life building up his tiny wish to help the children.

Cabrinin Connections & Tutor/mentor Connection was founded by Daniel F. Bassill. Their mission is to engage

workplace adults in structured activities that make a life-changing difference for youth living in economically and

educationally disadvantaged neighborhoods. I would like to make you know there are a lot of people doing charities

work for the needs children.

I think you won't feel loney in another world because we all remember you in this world.

Sincerely,

Liye

Nicely written. I agree that MJ was a great spirit and should be remembered for all the good. I believe he gave over $300 million to charity and, even in death, requested that 20% of his assets go to charity.
