"I can't stop crying over the sad news,"
"I have always admired Michael Jackson. The world has
lost one of the greats, but his music will live on forever!
My heart goes out to his three children and other members
of his family. God bless."
"Way before Tiger Woods, way before Oprah Winfrey, way
before Barack Obama, Michael did with music what they
later did in sports and in politics and in television,"
“I am absolutely devastated at this tragic and unexpected news.
For Michael to be taken away from us so suddenly at such a young
ge, I just don’t have the words. Divinity brought our souls together
on The Wiz and allowed us to do what we were able to throughout
the 80’s. To this day, the music we created together on “Off The
Wall,” “Thriller” and “Bad” is played in every corner of the world
and the reason for that is because he had it all…talent, grace,
professionalism and dedication. He was the consummate
entertainer and his contributions and legacy will be felt
upon the world forever. I’ve lost my little brother today,
and part of my soul has gone with him.”
"A little bit of everyone died today. I can tell
you a piece of me just did."
"MJ made black folks proud. He influenced
our music and our style of dress. He taught us what it meant
to be a 'performer.' He was our beloved icon, and we'll hold him
in our hearts forever. We've just lost the most loved, talented
and famous African-American in the world. Everyone from
the age of 25-80 should be saddened by this loss, and if you're
younger and you don't know the history, you need to learn it.
Michael paved the way for blacks into the mainstream."
"that music shaped me . The freaquency is real. My heart and
artistry are truly influenced and forever impacted. ...Thank you
Michael for your hard work , dedication ,
philanthropy & the sacrifice of your young spirit . Your visio
n and imagination live thru us. I don’t know what to say."
“I had no concern about his ability to go to the top,”
“He was like my son. He had warmth, sensitivity and two
“Michael was and will remain one of the greatest entertainers
that ever lived,” “When he was not on stage, he was loving,
respectful and shy. When he WAS on stage, he was so in charge
you would not believe he was the same person. I extend my
sympathies to Joe, Katherine and the entire Jackson family.
My prayers are with them.”
