At 6:30 A.M. I was waken up by the beep of my mobile phone. Since three of my kids were not at home, I immediately grabbed my cellphone to see who sent me an SMS message. It was from daughter #1, the doctor who was on duty at a hospital. The message read: "patay na si Michael Jackson" (Michael Jackson is dead). I shook my head, rubbed my eyes, and read again the text message. This can't be right! Michael is not even sick and is even preparing for a big comeback concert this July! I got out of bed, turned on the computer and searched for the related news. Indeed, Michael Jackson, the king of pop, the icon of my time, the alleged child molester, the often ridiculed persona by some, the little of boy at heart, the inventor of the moon-walk, the total performer, the only singer that I really, really adore, is dead.

He reportedly was in a coma when rushed to a hospital and suffered a cardiac arrest en route. Born on August 29, 1958, Michael died on June 25 2009, two months short of his 51st birthday. I am truly saddened by his death. It's like losing a friend. My mp3 is filled with his songs as I've been a fan of the Jackson 5 since the early 70s. Christmas will not be the same without hearing his song "Give Love on Christmas Day". His songs "Thriller" and Billy Jean" are part of my "jogging music"....Michael Jackson is dead! I cannot believe it. We almost touched hands when I watched his concert in Manila in 1996. Wait. I need time to digest and assimilate the fact that greatest total performer of all time is dead.

  6. June 25th was indeed a very very sad sad sad day for the entertainment industry! 2 icons (Farrah Faucett and MJ) passed away just hours in between!

    Though the death of MJ took the world by great surprise and much sadness! We have lost such a one of a kind talent!

    But he is in a better place now. No pain, no suffering, no isolation.

    Sad . . .
