He was born on August 29, 1958 in the small industrial town of Gary, Indiana. There were nine siblings, in order of birth: Maureen (“Rebbie”), Sigmund Esco (“Jackie”), Tariano Adaryl (“Tito”), Jermaine LaJuane, LaToya Yvonne, Marlon David (twin brother Brandon died one day old), Michael Joseph, Steven Randall (“Randy”) and Janet Damita Jo.

Their father, Joseph Walter Jackson, worked as a crane operator in the local factory. Their mother, Katherine Esther Scruse, worked as a saleswoman; he also sang in a church choir.
The large family had very little space in the small house. Joseph formed a band called The Falcons with his brother and friends, they played in local clubs. They did not have much success, and eventually the band broke up.

When their TV broke, the children sang and played music with their mother; the boys also took out their father’s fearfully guarded, locked-away guitar when they could. One day Tito tore a string, so they all fell down. Their father listened to them after the initial outburst of anger, and then, convinced of their talent, began to plan the family’s musical career. He bought musical instruments with their little money.

Their mother joined the Jehovah’s Witnesses sect; they didn’t celebrate birthdays or Christmas, and the neighbors looked at them more and more strangely. While other children played outside, they diligently practiced at home, accompanied by the sneers and shouts of the neighbors. Their father raised them strictly and with a hard hand, which included beatings and intimidation.

Little Michael started singing at the age of three. At an elementary school event, he sang the song ” Climb Ev’ry Mountain ” from the musical “The Voice of Music “. The parents and teachers gave him a standing ovation with tears in their eyes. From then on, she constantly danced and practiced in front of a mirror.

The Jackson Five

As the lead singer of the family band originally called Jackson Brothers, Michael also started choreographing their dance moves at the age of 6. They have won several talent competitions.

From 1966, they also performed regularly in Chicago. The group called The Jackson Five visited the cities on weekends by minibus, the boys often arrived home a few hours before school started at dawn. During their performances, they learned a lot from the other performers; Michael kept watching the musicians on stage from behind the curtain. He began to become such a professional performer for his age that rival bands thought for a moment that he was actually a small adult leading the Jackson Five.

In 1967, they performed in the world-famous talent show at the Apollo theater in New York, which was the dream of every successful black performer. They won the race.
After winning first place at the Beckman Junior high school competition in Gary, the band was noticed by the owner of Steeltown Records. In the studio of a small local record label, the team was able to record under professional conditions. In 1968, they released two singles: one with Big Boy and You’ve Changed, and the other with We Don’t Have to Be Over 21 (to Fall in Love) and Jam Session.


A video recording of them was made in 1968 for Motown Records in Detroit. President Berry Gordy signed them. They were accommodated in Hollywood, Michael later lived in the house of the legendary Diana Ross, whom he idolized until the end of his life. Diana raised Michael as a kind of surrogate mother, she showed him what hard work and professionalism in show business means. He also taught her to draw and paint and took her to museums.

The single I Want You Back was released in October 1969 and sold more than 6 million copies worldwide. After that, he also participated in the group’s TV performances.
The whole family moved into the Los Angeles house rented by the label, and in December their first LP, Diana Ross Presents The Jackson 5, was released. The second single, ABC, displaced the Beatles’ Let It Be from the top of the Billboard chart in six weeks. The third disc of the hat trick was The Love You Save, which was also a great success. With this, the Jackson Five became the first band to achieve worldwide success with both their first three singles.

Their solo concert was on May 2, 1970 at the Philadelphia Convention Center.
The second LP, ABC, was released in the same month and became even more successful than the first album. At their concert at the Forum in Los Angeles, they set a record for the number of spectators. The ballad I’ll Be There, now considered a classic, has sold more than two and a half million copies worldwide.

The next single was Mama’s Pearl, released in 1971. The family visited Gary back home to support the then-mayor’s re-election campaign. They gave two sold-out concerts.
The single Never Can Say Goodbye sold almost 2 million copies. In May, the family moved into their own house in Encino, an upscale part of California.

After the release of the song ” Maybe Tomorrow “, the group embarked on a fifty-concert tour, during which the audience at Madison Square Garden besieged the stage.
In October 1971, Michael’s first single, Got To Be There, was released, one and a half million of them were sold worldwide. Due to the popularity of the team, it became increasingly impossible for the boys to attend regular schools. Michael attended private schools or was tutored. Rockin’ Robin was released in February 1972.

In the same year, Michael achieved success with the album Ben: the title song was nominated for an Oscar; it was the soundtrack to a film about the friendship between a boy and a rat named Ben. More than one million seven hundred thousand discs were sold. In November, the band started their first European tour, the opening concert in London was also watched by the Queen of England. At Heathrow Airport, they received the same welcome as the Beatles. 

In terms of album sales, the group Lookin’ Through the Windows has fallen “only” more than half a million copies of the album were sold. The single Dancing Machine was released in February 1974, which brought new success to the band with sales of more than two million. In April, they performed at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, winning over an audience of mostly white middle-aged people. The LP was also released in September.

The Jacksons

In January 1975, Michael’s fourth solo album, Forever Michael, was released. It was not a success, just like 1973’s Music And Me before it. According to the label, the boys would not have been able to write their own songs and began to neglect the group’s advertising. Eventually, all but Jermaine (who married the boss’s daughter, Hazel Gordy) left Motown and signed to CBS-Epic. Randy joined the team instead of Jermaine. They couldn’t keep their name, so they decided on The Jacksons. Their TV series started in 1976, with celebrities as guests. It was the first series to feature a black family. 

The first album with Epic, The Jacksons, was released in November with the title; received mixed reviews. It also featured one of Michael’s very first compositions, Blues Away.

The band’s second album, Goin’ Places, came out in October 1977 – it was not a success. The label agreed to give the boys free rein to write and perform their own tracks.
In 1978, the first LP, Destiny, was released, which consisted of all but one of his own compositions. Along with Blame It on the Boogie, Michael and Randy’s Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground) was the most successful song. The single was released in February 1979 and sold two million copies worldwide.

Director Sidney Lumet, in his adaptation of Oz, the wonder of wonders, which received the title The Wiz (short for The Wizard of Oz), set the story in a modern setting, New York, and the characters were black singers. Diana Ross played Dorothy and Michael the Scarecrow. Despite the failure of the film, Michael’s performance earned him the recognition of his colleagues and critics. During the filming, the working relationship between producer-composer Quincy Jones and Michael began, which resulted in worldwide success.

Off the Wall

On August 29, 1979, he came of age, twenty-one years old, sought a lawyer and took control of his life. Quincy and Michael’s first joint work, the Off The Wall album, was also released in August. With 6 million copies sold, it became the world’s most popular black record; today this number is more than 20 million. (To this day, it is typical that LPs usually contain 2-3 tracks, but the rest are weaker songs. Michael wanted to release an album without so-called B-side filler music, i.e. each song should stand on its own his place. He stuck to this in his later works as well.)

Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough single was released in July and topped the charts in three months. Michael’s first video clip was also completed for the song. Stevie Wonder wrote the song I Can’t Help It , which is so full of chord changes that Michael almost borders on jazz singing. Rock with You topped the charts; Off the Wall and She’s Out of My Life also entered the top ten – a record.

In 1980, the new Jackson LP, Triumph, was released . It is enough to mention the titles of two songs from the album: Can You Feel It, Heartbreak Hotel. A disc containing the live recordings of the concert tour was released a year later. The summer tour ended with a four-day series of performances in Los Angeles, which broke all previous records.

In June 1981, he began working with Quincy Jones on the adaptation of Steven Spielberg’s film ET. Michael sings Someone in the Dark on it. Muscles, written for Diana Ross, was completed at the same time, with which the singer entered the top ten.

It seemed that Michael Jackson had written himself into music history once and for all, both together with his brothers and solo. However, due to his restless and perfectionist nature, he was not satisfied with the huge success, he wanted to develop further professionally, he wanted to be the best in the world. Most people did not take their ambitious dreams seriously …


In April 1982, recordings began for the next album, which was again produced by Quincy Jones. They had to re-mix everything before the release because the recorded material did not sound according to their ideas. Maximalism, on the other hand, had its results.
The lead single was The Girl is Mine, a duet with Paul McCartney; then on November 30, the Thriller album, which is still important in music history, was released.

Seven out of nine songs were copied as singles, and the videos made for the music were a great novelty: they told a story, and the viewer almost fell into a movie, into a separate world. Michael didn’t like the term music video, preferring to refer to his work as a short film – videos were shot for three of the Thriller songs: Billie Jean, Beat It, and Thriller.
On March 25, 1983, the Motown label celebrated its 25th birthday. 

Along with his brothers, Michael was also asked to perform; however, he was only willing to go on stage if he could also perform a solo composition of his own. With this, her career reached another milestone – at the ceremony named Motown 25: Yesterday, Today and Forever, the audience and TV viewers could see Billie Jean for the first time his stage performance. 

Michael put together the choreography the night before the show, borrowing his mother’s sequined black jacket from the closet. At his request, they got him a black fedora hat … When the show he and his brothers performed together on stage ended, he started into Billie Jean after a lyrical introduction. It was here that he first presented the “moonwalk”, which has since merged with his name. 

As a result, the single released in January became a chart-topper again; his role model, Fred Astaire, also congratulated him on his production. The video clip also contributed to the success of the song, whose memorable moments include the flashing pavement tiles under Michael’s feet. Beat It, released in February the single video pits two rival gangs against each other; the interesting part was that members of two real Los Angeles bands were also contracted for the filming. Eddie Van Halen’s guitar solo also became famous with the song.

The next three singles were Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’ (May), Human Nature (July) and PYT (Pretty Young Thing) (September).
John Landis directed Thrillervideo (the single itself was released in January 1984). Michael asked him because he imagined the song to be similar to the scenes of the director’s previous work, An American Werewolf in London. The video clip was almost destroyed because the Jehovah’s Witness sect objected to its subject matter. Finally, before the opening credits, Michael made a disclaimer that the video does not support the occult. 

In the end, the iconic short film was 13 minutes and 43 seconds long. They also released the feature film The Making of Thriller, which became the highest-selling music video.
In addition to the hat, white socks and half a pair of white gloves, Thriller’s red jacket has also become legendary; album sales skyrocketed. When it won in 8 categories at the Grammys, considered the Oscars of music, (and thus broke another record), it had already sold 35 million copies. 

It put an end to the 1980s pop music moribundness, as the Thriller crowd flocked to other records. He became the first black artist whose videos were played by the young music channel MTV.

The Thriller single topped the Billboard charts for 37 weeks, which was unprecedented. It also became the most popular song in England, staying on the charts for 168 weeks. (It was the first album to reach number one in both the UK and the US.)

On January 27, 1984, Michael suffered second and third degree burns on his head while filming a commercial for Pepsi-Cola with his brothers. In the end, the company paid an unprecedentedly high amount of one and a half million dollars in damages. Michael donated the money to the burn unit at Brotman Memorial Hospital, where he was treated; which was renamed the Michael Jackson Burn Center out of gratitude.

On July 2, 1984, the Jacksons Victory album was released, on which all six brothers worked together. It has sold more than 7 million copies worldwide; it featured Michael’s duet with Mick Jagger, State of Shock. The tour, which started on July 6, lasted half a year; Michael donated all proceeds, almost five million dollars, to three charities.

On February 28, 1985, a choir of the best-known musicians in the entertainment industry gathered to sing the USA for Africa foundation’s song We Are the World, written by Michael and Lionel Richie, to help the hungry. It became the best-selling single in the history of pop music (with around 20 million copies); the very first to go multi-platinum – certified quadruple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

In September 1986, the 3D movie Captain EO was shown for the first time in Disneyland. In it, Michael defeats the main villain played by Anjelica Huston; meanwhile, Another Part of Me and We Are Here to Change the World are played . The 17-minute adventure was directed by Francis Ford Coppola and produced by George Lucas.


The publicity campaign for the long-awaited next LP was taken care of by manager Frank Dileo. The Bad album was released on August 31, 1987; the heralding first single was July’s I Just Can’t Stop Loving You. Martin Scorsese directed the Bad clip, which was similar in length to Thriller. The 18-minute short film is about street gangs; is based on a true story that Michael read about in a weekly newspaper. Filming took place in the New York subway; one of the gang members was played by Wesley Snipes, whose career was launched as a result.

The Bad tour, which started in mid-September, lasted 16 months – it was Michael’s first solo tour and consisted of 123 concerts. With $125 million in revenue, it became the most successful tour of all time. In the United States, Michael distributed 400 tickets to children in need before each concert, and also donated the proceeds.

In the meantime, singles taken from the album were released one after another, each accompanied by a video clip: The Way You Make Me Feel, Man In The Mirror, Another Part Of Me, Dirty Diana, Smooth Criminal, Leave Me Alone and Liberian Girl. Six numbers also topped the charts in the USA and Europe, setting a new record. The Bad album sold 60 million copies. With the advent of the digital era, Leave Me Alone was added to the CD version as an encore in addition to the 10 songs on the vinyl. 

Moonwalk, Michael’s autobiography, edited by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, was published in February 1988. It topped the bestseller lists in the second week after its release. The Moonwalker
movie was released in the same year. It starts with a musical journey, in which we can follow the main stages of Michael’s career up to that point. In the second half of the film, another story emerges from the visual world of the Smooth Criminal video: the main villain, played by Joe Pesci, wants to conquer the world, but in the end, Good defeats Evil.

In March 1988, Michael bought an 11-square-kilometer property near Santa Ynez. He named it Neverland after his favorite fairy tale, Peter Pan. He had a zoo and an amusement park built; he tried to make up for everything that was left out of his childhood.
It was not easy for him to bear the weight of megastardom: strange rumors and fake news began to circulate about him; his personality became mysterious, as he did not allow a glimpse into his private life. Added to this was the worsening of his skin disease called vitiligo.


The music video for Black or White, the first single from the Dangerous album, was released on November 14, 1991, directed by John Landis, who also wrote Thriller. The 11-minute short film featured the most modern visual effects – it featured the so-called “morphing”, which the audience could also admire in the current Terminator 2. Due to the last part of the clip (the “black panther” unrestrained dance orgy), the music channels played a shorter version during daytime hours. Michael replaced Frank Dileo and worked with writer-producer duo Teddy Riley and Bill Botrell on the album. The new-sounding songs of the Dangerous LP were popularized by spectacular videos, and world stars also appeared in them.

Remember the Time, released in January 1992, evoked the world of ancient Egypt and featured Eddie Murphy, supermodel Iman and basketball player Magic Johnson.
The first version of In the Closet (May) was found to be too erotic, so the scenes between Michael and supermodel Naomi Campbell had to be “tame down”. The clip was directed by photographer Herb Ritts.

In the video for the July single Jam, Michael danced and played basketball with basketball legend Michael Jordan. Heal the World came out in November, with the message of making the world a better place. Michael also created the Heal the World Foundation, a charitable foundation.

The rock ballad Give in to Me(February 1993) music video features Slash playing guitar on stage. The Dangerous tour also surpassed the success of the Bad concert series. The tour, which ran from June ’92 to November ’93, was again supported by Pepsi; Michael wanted to use the proceeds to support his foundation.

In February 1993, he gave an interview to Oprah Winfrey. It was a big sensation, as he hosted the crew in Neverland, in the framework of an hour-and-a-half show. He spoke openly about his childhood and family, his career and even his skin disease, among other things. It brought a record viewership of 36.5 million viewers for the show.

In the fall of 1993, the father of 13-year-old Jordan Chandler accused Michael of sexually abusing his son. He threatened to sue and demanded compensation. Michael initially wanted to go to trial to prove his innocence but was dissuaded by his lawyers in order to get a quick closure. The highly publicized case was investigated by the police for a long time, a year and a half after the payment, but it turned out that the boy testified against the singer under the influence of mind-altering drugs administered by his father. The authorities eventually closed the investigation due to a complete lack of evidence. However, District Attorney Tom Sneddon did not want to settle for that.

Michael Jackson History

On May 26, 1994, the news that Michael married Elvis Presley’s daughter, Lisa Marie, caused a sensation. In August, the couple came to Budapest to shoot a commercial for Michael’s next LP (it took place on Hősök Square, in front of the Budapest Palace, and on Margit Bridge).

They visited Pál Heim and Bethesda Children’s Hospital; Michael promised to cover the costs of the liver transplant for little Béla Farkas. The double-disc HIStory
album was released on June 16, 1995, which included 15 best of songs as well as 15 new ones. In most of the new songs, he hits back at his detractors and the media. The first performance was Scream with Janet a black-and-white video set in a spaceship was made, which became the most expensive video in the world at a cost of 7 million. 

The single, which featured Childhood, about his difficult childhood, sold more than 8 million copies. Michael and Lisa Marie appeared together in the music video for R. Kelly’s ballad You Are Not Alone in August; Boasting 10 million copies sold, the single entered the Guinness Book of Records as the first song to open at the top of the Billboard 100 chart. 

The Earth Song about the fate of our planet was released as a single in November. Michael wanted to write a song with a very simple melody, but with a deep meaning in terms of lyrics so that his message would reach the most people. In the video, thanks to the special effects, everything turns for the better: dead animals and nature come to life.
At the end of March 1996, They Don’t Care About Us, containing harsh social criticism, was published. Two clips were made for it directed by Spike Lee; one was filmed in a prison and the other in a Brazilian slum.

According to experts, the last single of the album, Stranger in Moscow, is the singer’s most brilliant, most meaningful song, which is about loneliness, vulnerability and vulnerability. Michael wrote the ballad during the Moscow stop of the Dangerous tour back in 1993, at the time of the harassment allegations against him.

The HIstory tour started in the fall of 1996 in Prague and ended in October 1997 in South Africa. The second stop was in Budapest on September 10; 45,000 people could see the concert in the Népstadion (Puskás Ferenc Stadium). In March, the album Blood on the Dancefloor: HIStory in the Mix was released, which included remixes of eight songs from HIStory and five new tracks. With sales of 7 million, it became the best-selling remix album in the world.

He co-wrote the short film Michael Jackson’s Ghosts with Stephen King. The 40-minute musical horror debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in 1997. At the end of the film, scenes related to the filming are shown; here it turns out that Michael plays five roles, including his opponent, the pudgy, fat mayor.

After divorcing Lisa Marie, he married Deborah Rowe, a nurse who worked alongside the doctor treating his skin problems. Their first child, Prince, was born in February 1997, and their second child, Paris, was born in March 1998. After the divorce in 1999, the children stayed with Michael by mutual agreement.


In 2001, he celebrated the 30th year of his solo career, and on this occasion, the Michael Jackson: 30th Anniversary Special show was organized in New York. Michael performed again with his brothers and the cream of the entertainment industry performed their greatest hits. After the collapse of the twin towers of the World Trade Center, he organized a charity concert (October 21) to help the victims and their families, for which he wrote the song ” What More Can I Give “. It was recorded in both English and Spanish with the participation of 35 singers.

In October, the Invincible album was released, which had problems with its promotion, and the releases of the singles were also delayed. You Rock My WorldHis 13-minute video features film legend Marlon Brando, Chris Tucker, Michael Madsen and Billy Drago. Sony Music released the singles Cry (December) and Butterflies (February), but due to legal disputes with the label, they were not promoted enough, nor was the album. The suspected hits Unbreakable2000 Watts, and Whatever Happens with Carlos Santana received absolutely no promotion. Despite all this, the LP sold 8 million.

The lawsuit

Living With Michael Jackson was the title of Martin Bashir’s 2003 documentary, which, despite the reporter’s promises, became a distorted, manipulated tabloid material. Michael also brought up interviews with his own people alongside Bashir’s material; this was televised as Take Two: The Footage You Were Never Meant to See in response. However, it was too late, and Michael was dragged away again as a result. Bashir’s version also featured a boy named Gavin Arvizo who had cancer but was cured thanks to Michael’s support. The 1993 allegations were also discussed, but Gavin maintained that Michael’s relationship with the children was purely friendly.

The prosecutor of the case 10 years before, Tom Sneddon, took control this time, the police began to investigate Neverland. However, the families visiting the estate spoke positively about Michael. The case seemed to die down in a few months, but on November 18, he was arrested and the estate ransacked in the hope of evidence. The lawsuit was brought by Gavin’s parents and was fraught with controversy from the start; Michael was also charged with detention, kidnapping and attempted murder. 

In their testimony, they also had to change the date of the harassment several times, as it turned out that Michael was not even on their property at that time. Prosecutor Sneddon also controlled the media, the accusations were treated as facts by the press. The negotiations, including preliminary negotiations, lasted one and a half years, the witnesses of the Arvizo family gave contradictory statements. 

Michael’s lawyer was Thomas Mesereau, who called prosecutor Sneddon as a witness; he was found to have cooperated with the accusers. One of Gavin’s teachers also testified, to whom the boy once told that Michael had not molested him. The Arvizo family was eventually charged with multiple counts of fraud, and the jury found Michael innocent of all 14 charges.

He was acquitted on June 13, 2005, the representatives of the media hoping for his guilt were disappointed. According to the information appearing on the Internet, they have already speculated how much they will be able to profit from their coverage of the prison years.

Michael left the continent and moved to Bahrain with his three children (Blanket was born in 2002, to an unknown mother), and never returned to Neverland. The lawsuits also contributed to the fact that his debts arose, and he could not meet the deadlines of record contracts because of this. However, his debts were by no means as great as it appeared in the media. He was busy resting and preparing for a new album. In December 2006, he returned to the United States for the funeral of his role model, James Brown. He then continued recording in Las Vegas.

This Is It

On March 5, 2009, he held a press conference in London where he announced that he would play 10 concerts at the O2 arena in London; will be titled This Is It. He will perform his biggest hits, this will be his last concert series. Tickets sold out in record time, two every second according to the Guinness Book of Records. The concert organizers increased the number of performances to 50, and the selection of dancers and musicians began. July 13 became the date of the first concert, rehearsals began at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

But on June 25, Michael was found unconscious at his home in Holmby Hills by his family doctor, Dr. Conrad Murray. An ambulance took him to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, where an hour-long resuscitation attempt failed. He died of cardiac arrest. The world was shocked, the biggest news sites on the Internet collapsed.

On July 7, the public farewell was held at the Staples Center, where 17,500 fans could enter. Alongside the family, friends, celebrities and fellow musicians performed or gave speeches. According to some television surveys, more than one billion people watched the farewell. She was laid to rest on September 3 at Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery.

Video recordings were made of the rehearsals and creative processes of the This Is It concert.
Dr. Conrad Murray was found guilty of negligent homicide on February 8, 2010; the singer was given a propofol overdose.
