Michael Jackson (1958-2009)
“The King of Pop” is one of the most impressive entertainers the world has ever seen. Whether it be dancing on stage or flawlessly changing octaves, Michael Jackson was a one-of-a-kind performer. Throughout all of his different eras, we saw an artist continue to evolve both musically and personally. Jackson’s iconic yet tumultuous career came to an end in 2009. At the time of his sudden passing, he was only 50 years of age.
The Swedish musician (real name Tim Bergling) had broken out as a major force within the music industry as a 16-year-old. His online groundswell of support only intensified over time. From there, Avicii become a global star. He was masterful in sampling, splicing, and mixing together tracks with his unique collection of beats. In 2018, Avicii was found deceased whilst in Oman. He was only 28 years of age.
