10 Years Ago We Said Goodbye To The King of Pop: Michael Jackson

On June 25, 2009, the world said goodbye to music legend: Michael Jackson. 

Best known as THE KING OF POP, Jackson died just before embarking on a comeback tour. The cause of death was acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication at his Holmby Hills home in Los Angeles.

Jackson became the lead singer of his family's popular Motown group, the Jackson 5 as a child. He went on to a solo career of astonishing worldwide success, delivering No. 1 hits from the albums Off the WallThriller and Bad.

On MJ's official website, a statement reads: "Every individual act of kindness helps create a better world for everyone. Michael lived his life by this philosophy, and the strength of his influence is apparent through all of your efforts through the #HonorMJ campaign.
