I wish I was writing you a note from my office in Huntington Beach with a happy story, but unfortunately I’m not. I really wanted to mark this moment in our history that a legend known to all corners of the earth has passed away at 2:26 p.m. Pacific today. Michael Jackson passed away today at the young age of 50 years old just a few weeks before he was to kick off his tour at the O2 arena in London.
Michael Jackson was an inspirational person to me from his music to his dancing moves as well. I learned how to moon walk watching his videos, learned so much from his music videos for my work in music and photography and now as of today, I will not be able to enjoy his artistry any more.
Regardless of the scandals and media hype that he endured from his childhood to today, he will be greatly missed here at Esquire Photography HQ. I hope that he is finally able to have some peace in his life and we’ll be praying for his family & friends around the world.
Myself having endured several near death experiences in my life, I know that life is precious and I hope that you recognize this as well. Appreciate what you’ve been given, where you’re at & the life that you have.
May you and your families and friends be blessed.
