Music Autobiography The artist that I would to say that change the way how I see music and the attitude that I have with music is Michael Jackson, the legend of pop music. Probably no one would say that he or she is not familiar with Michael Jackson. However, the Michael Jackson he or she knew may just be the songwriting or the dancing or the fashion. In fact, Michael Jackson was way more than that, he dominated each of those artistic avenues, and so many others. Music The first time when I listened to the music of Michael Jackson was when he performed the song We Are the World" with several celebrities and pop-stars to raise money for Haiti. At that time, to me, he is just a singer, a songwriter who perform good songs. Then I started to search his albums, it was like digging out endless gold, every song opens me a new angle of music, "Thriller" "Dangerous" "Bad" …, every album is a different hit to me.

And that, simply, was to make the world a better and happier place. What a great goal. If we all had that simple goal imagine how different the world would be. Michael Jackson reformed popular culture in ways that are hard to shake, just like Elvis, Bob Dylan and Beatles. He set the runway of music and influenced many musicians, songwriters and dancers who came after him in one way or another. He was a legacy and was incomparable.
