  • Was born to an African-American working-class family, the eighth of ten children. His father had been a guitarist but had to give up his musical ambition on marriage. Was a music lover from an early age, starting as a backing musician and soon becoming a lead singer in the family band, the Jackson 5, which began touring the Midwest and performing mainly in black clubs. Scored four No. 1 hits ("I Want You Back," "ABC," "The Love You Save" and "I'll Be There") with the Jackson 5 in 1970 when he was 12. His first solo No. 1 single was "Ben," from the movie of the same name, in 1972. His Thriller is the best-selling album in history. From its debut in 1982 through 1995, it sold more than a million copies a year. Premiered his most famous dance move, the Moonwalk, in 1983 on NBC's Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever. In 1985, paid $40 million for the rights of much of the Beatles' song catalogue. A 1993 appearance on Oprah Winfrey drew 62 million viewers. Was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, along with his brothers, in 1997; was inducted again, as a solo artist, in 2001. In later life became introverted because of his celebrity and made drastic changes to his appearance and began to exhibit bizarre behaviour. Was dogged by allegations of child molestation. Received numerous awards: 31 Guinness World Records; 13 Grammy Awards, Grammy Legend Award and Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award; 26 American Music Awards and 18 World Music Awards. His 'Heal the World' Foundation enabled airlifts of food and medical supplies to war-torn countries, and instituted education programmes on mentoring, immunisation and drug-abuse. Died of a cardiac arrest following a drug overdose on June 25, 2009. A televised memorial service was held on July 7, 2009, at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. 17,500 tickets were issued to fans via a lottery, while an estimated 1 billion viewers watched the service on TV or online. The Lunar Republic Society renamed a crater on the moon Michael Joseph Jackson in his honour.
