 MICHAEL JACKSON: Master Entertainer
By Mumia Abu-Jamal, Prisonradio, June 26, 2009

  

The shocking passing of megastar Michael Jackson has brought his music back to the minds of millions. Although his style of both dance and song may've been superseded by a whole new genre, there were few singers or dancers who didn't borrow something from the artist known as the 'king of pop.'

Among many of today's prominent artists are bits and pieces of Michael, just as he borrowed from the irrepressible James Brown. In Usher, Omarion, NeYo, Ciara, Genuwine (just to name a few), are glimpses of Michael Jackson's frenetic, almost robotic dancing style.

As a commercial artist, he had no peer. His 1983 "Thriller" not only earned a Grammy award, but spawned a dozen hits. The album would go on to sell more than any single artist's: 27 million copies.

Years ago, I told my wife I didn't care for the artist; she told me to ignore all the criticism, the press -- all of it, and look at him as an entertainer, say, like Sinatra.

I did. She was right.

He was a master entertainer, who moved millions not only with his distinctive vocals, but his dancing changed the art like Muhammad Ali changed the sport of boxing.

I never failed to marvel at his sheer brilliance and artistry.

Recently, the prison station showed a video of Jackson's concert in Bucharest, Romania. An outdoor concert, with more people than any of us would care to count, Jackson was in rare form, transfixing the immense throng with a show that was unlike anything they'd ever seen.

For those who feel his music was mere bubblegum pop, and thus devoid of serious social commentary, check out one of his post 'Thriller' songs; "They Don't Care About Us." Filmed in what appears to be a Brazilian favela, surrounded by thousands of dark skinned boys and girls, many drumming to the beat, the song is an anthem of how the rich world treats the poor of the world.

Michael Jackson was a master of his art.

He may be gone; he certainly won't be forgotten.

Michael  Jackson: Un artista magistral
Muma Ab-Jamal, 26 de junio de 2009 

    La sorpresiva muerte del sper estrella Michael Jackson ha trado otra vez su msica a la memoria de millones.  An cuando su estilo tanto en la danza como en la cancin ha sido reemplazado por un nuevo gnero, fueron pocos los cantantes y bailarines no influenciados de alguna forma por el artista conocido como "el rey del pop." 

    En muchos de los artistas hoy prominentes hay pedacitos e imgenes de Michael, as como l aprendi del irrefrenable James Brown. En Usher, Omarion, NeYo, Ciara, Genuwine (slo por nombrar unos cuantos), hay reflejos del estilo frentico, casi robtico, de danza de Michael Jackson.

  Como artista empresario, no se comparaba a nadie. Su lbum de 1983, "Thriller", no slo gan un premio Grammy, si no que produjo una docena de xitos.  Ese lbum vendi ms que lo que ningn otro artista haba vendido antes con un solo disco: 27 millones de copias.

    Hace aos, le dije a mi esposa que a m ese artista no me interesaba; ella me dijo que ignore todas las crticas, lo que dicen los medios -- que ignore todo so, y que lo vea como cantante, como el artista que es, digamos, como se ve a Sinatra.

    Lo hice. Y ella tena razn.  

    El era un artista  magistral, que conmova a millones no slo con su distintiva voz, pero tambin su baile cambi el arte, del mismo modo que Muhammad Al cambi el deporte del boxeo.

    Jams dej de maravillarme por el completo brillo de su talento artstico.

    La estacin de la prisin pas recientemente un video de un concierto que Jackson hizo en Bucarest, Rumania. Era un concierto al aire libre, con ms gente que ninguno de nosotros hubiera podido contar. Jackson estuvo en rara forma, deslumbrando a la inmensa multitud con un espectculo como el que jams nadie de ellos haba visto en su vida.

    Para aquellos que crean que su msica era slo como chicle de mascar, y en consecuencia sin ningn contenido social, sugiero que vean, "A Ellos no les Importamos Nosotros," (They Don't Care About Us), una de las canciones que hizo despus de "Thriller". Filmada en lo que parece ser una favela brasilea, rodeado de miles nios y nias de piel oscura, muchos de ellos llevando el ritmo con sus tambores, la cancin es un himno a como el mundo de los ricos trata a los pobres del mundo.

    Michael Jackson fue un maestro en su arte.

    El se habr ido; pero ciertamente jams ser olvidado.

Invincible

 

We Had Him

Maya Angelou*

Beloveds, now we know that we know nothing, now that our bright and shining star can slip away from our fingertips like a puff of summer wind.

Without notice, our dear love can escape our doting embrace. Sing our songs among the stars and walk our dances across the face of the moon.

In the instant that Michael is gone, we know nothing. No clocks can tell time. No oceans can rush our tides with the abrupt absence of our treasure.

Though we are many, each of us is achingly alone, piercingly alone.

Only when we confess our confusion can we remember that he was a gift to us and we did have him.

He came to us from the creator, trailing creativity in abundance.

Despite the anguish, his life was sheathed in mother love, family love, and survived and did more than that.

He thrived with passion and compassion, humor and style. We had him whether we know who he was or did not know, he was ours and we were his.

We had him, beautiful, delighting our eyes.

His hat, aslant over his brow, and took a pose on his toes for all of us.

And we laughed and stomped our feet for him.

We were enchanted with his passion because he held nothing. He gave us all he had been given.

Today in Tokyo, beneath the Eiffel Tower, in Ghana's Black Star Square.

In Johannesburg and Pittsburgh, in Birmingham, Alabama, and Birmingham, England

We are missing Michael.

But we do know we had him, and we are the world.
