Michael Jackson’s memorial service

Filed under: blog,music,TV — Tags: , , — technofranki @ 03:59

Tuesday July 7th, 2009 was a sad day for all Michael Jackson fan around the World. I haven’t heard any numbers, but I guess a lot of people watched the public memorial service of Michael Jackson on TV.

It was a great service, with good music, videos of his life and nice tributes. It was laughs and tears, a nice mix of sadness and happiness. I have to say it was very thouching when Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris, made her tribute to his father.

Among the participants was Lionel Richie, John Mayer, Brooke Shields, Usher, Mariah Carey, Michael Jordan and Stevie Wonder.

The king of pop is no more, but his music and legacy will live on in his music and hour memories.

You can read more on the memorial service on CNN.com among other places.

Michael Jackson Memorial Tickets are not cheap

Filed under: blog,music,news — Tags: , , , — technofranki @ 16:35

Tomorrow at Staples Center in Los Angeles, a Memorial Service for Michael Jackson will be held. Only 17.500 tickets was made available to the public, but they do expect over 700.000 poeple to attend. I’ve seen that some of the tickets are available on eBay.com at ridicously high prices.

The service will be broadcasted Worldwide, and I guess it will be seen by a lot of people around the Globe.

In the memorial show “Inside Neverland” here the other day with Larry King, they filmed inside Neverland. And in the background you can see a shadow of something. A lot of fans do belive that it is the ghost of Micheal Jackson. I don’t think so, but I do see something.

News of the World have released a previously unseen videoclip with Michael Jackson when he was interviewed about the accusations against him in the mid 90’s. You can see the clip bellow.

The Japanese band Sour have made a fantastic music video for their “Hibi no neiro“-song (“日々の音色”/”Tone of everyday“). The video is made of recordings from fan all over the World, and edited in to an amazing musicvideo. I guess they have used a lot of time planing and editing this video. It’s a must see!

Michael JacksonThe King of Pop – is dead at 50. He died from cardiac arrest on June 25, 2009. He started his professional career with The Jackson 5 in 1969 when he was 11. He released several studio album and Thriller in 1982 which is the most selling album of all time. He won eight Grammy awards in 1984 whith that album, including three different genres – pop, R&B and rock.

His music videos like Beat It, Billie Jean and Thriller will be remembered. So will his famous Moonwalk. From the early 90s his career started to fall with concerns of his health, marriedges, reports of financial problems and accusation of sexual child abuse. All this harmed his public image.

But even if he had a lot of problems the last 15 years or so, you can’t deny that he was one of the mest musicians ever. His 13 number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100, nearly 65 million Thriller ablum sold and a total of aroun 750 million album. And not to say that he made an impact in the pop-culture in the 80s.

Michael Jackson was and for ever will be The King of Pop.
