Still in Austin, but couldn't resist sharing this video of MJ... one of my favorite belt-it-out songs.
I feel like Michael was greatly misunderstood, and certainly made some poor choices in his life, but I have always felt like those poor choices were the result of pretty much having no childhood and being in the spotlight since age 10. I always took pity on him and remembered the impact he made on the world of music and entertainment.
To me, he'll always be an icon. He was my older brother's idol growing up, and he was a huge part of my childhood.
So long, Michael. You will be missed.
