The Victory Tour in 1984 was my first concert. I was a child & my mom took me out of school early so i could get ready. i wore my white poet shirt, my Michael Jackson glove necklace & a new pair of lee jeans. ( my mom had bought me the outfit for the occasion). I vividly recall the crowds of people & my mom making sure I held her hand tight as we moved through the swarms of people.We found our seats and just like that MAGIC. The Jackson 5 hit the stage and it was electric. They danced, I danced, they sang, I sang. It was the one of the most exciting nights of my life. There were fireworks at the end of the show and just like that they were all gone. The ride home we listened to the concert on the radio until I feel sleep in the car.

I couldn’t wait to go to school the next day to show everyone my t-shirt, my jackson tour belt, the book i had gotten. I spoke about that concert for weeks, months and years later.

As many other people did today I downloaded a few records off on tunes and listened intently to his songs. I found myself being nostalgic. Beginning with the best of the Jackson five, moving on to Michael Jackson :Gold , The Wall and finally the BEST of Michael Jackson.

Michael Jacksons death is shocking, sad & unbelievable for some. His years of singing, dancing , performing will not be something anyone will ever forget that is fore sure.

He is no one i will never forget.

Thank you Michael for being an amazing entertainer, for touching the world with your timeless sound and for giving me such a wonderful memory .

You truly are & will always be the king of pop.

    I will never forget taking "Lola" to her first concert - and the fact that it was Michael Jackson had great meaning for both of us. Michael Jackson's appeal crossed the generations and I was always a fan. The sights and sounds of the Victory Concert at JFK Stadium in Philadelphia are often replayed in my brain. I am sure I have pictures of us dressed up to attend the concert, but I don't think we were allowed to take pictures there and were checked at the gate. We sat up high in the bleachers and Michael and his entourage were merely specks on the stage - until the jumbo screens turned on and we were mesmerized by his image - larger than life. I remember smoke and fire works, costumes and lights that sparkled and the music pounding in my chest. The crowd singing, swinging and dancing to each song. Michael's music was planted inside of all of us and twenty five years later we still think it is a Thrilllllleeeerrrrrrrr.
    Good bye Michael. We will not forget you.
