The original “MJ” passed away on this date in 2009, leaving the music world with a tremendous void

On June 25, 2009, the entire world was in shock as it was announced that Michael Joseph Jackson, perhaps the most talented entertainer of the century, had passed away at the age of 50.

Jackson was only weeks shy of his 50-city “This Is It” Tour before he was found unresponsive in his famous Neverland Ranch home in California. He leaves behind his mother, father, seven siblings and his three children, Paris and both Princes to carry on his legacy.



Too many artists have been influenced by Michael to name, however, his mark on music is forever etched in stone in the form of countless Grammys, American Music Awards and other lifetime achievement recognition Jackson has received from the entertainment world. Not to mention the infamous “moonwalk” made popular by MJ will eternally live through some dancer’s shoes.

The Northstar Group and The Source Magazine send a super salute to the Jackson family and shall the legacy of Michael Jackson live on forever!
