Anybody watched Michael Jackson's funeral last night?
The King of Pop was not only a superb singer and a creative dancer, but also a boundary-breaker, a kind-hearted person, someone who cared for the world.
He gathered various singers to sing "We Are The World" in order to raise funds to help famine-relief in Ethiopia, back in 1984. "Heal The World" and "Earth Song" are his other messages to create awareness. It doesn't matter if he's "Black or White". Racism doesn't exist in his world.
Such is the nobility of Michael Jackson.
The famous Moonwalk
Michael Jackson is truly a legend, an irreplaceable entity in the face of music, and society.
Thank you for everything. May you rest in peace...
My top three favourite songs of MJ:
3. You Are Not Alone
2. Smooth Criminal
1. Black Or White
Back to H1N1. With increasing warriness as to the case of swine flu in Brunei, Thedorico Franchi Chong Cheng Shiong, the latest Bruneian poet (and was interested to join force with DENcorp a few months back :p) composed a poem.
Have a read on it. I thought it's well constructed and humorous at the same time ;)
