    Michael Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana on 1958, and it wasn’t short after that that he would hop onto the fast track to a life chock-full of success, happiness, turbulence, and controversy. At the extremely early age of five, Michael became the lead singer of the legendary Jackson 5, a group consisting entirely of his family members. With being as young as he was, Michael’s vocal work was amazing and he was able to showcase emotions very well. The Jackson 5 was eventually signed under Motown and the Motown music style can be seen as an influence in some of Michael’s later songs. Despite Michael launching his extremely successful solo career at the age of 13, he still continued to work with his family in The Jacksons (renamed from the Jackson 5 after their departure from Motown) and his numerous hit songs helped the group’s popularity even more. It cannot be stressed enough the impact that Michael’s family had on his career. His father’s determination to train his sons and turn the…

    Michael’s self-confidence was weak from the start. At 5 years old, Michael joined his family group, known as the Jackson 5 and immediately impressed audiences. Due to his striking range and depth, he became the groups lead vocalist. His father, Joseph Jackson, was passionate about his sons’ success. He was particularly hard on Michael because of the potential he saw in him. His father was known to become violent and short tempered with his kids, forcing them to spend endless hours rehearsing and polishing up their act. Their hard work payed off which lead to the Jackson 5 becoming famous immediately. The group and their father were infatuated with the positive responses except for Michael. He was the most talented of the group but ironically was a quiet person off stage. He never seemed to feel comfortable with media attention and giving interviews. Despite his shyness, when the Jackson 5 split up in 1979, Michael continued a solo career. For the next few years Michael’s career prospered. His first album made Top 10 Hits, he received Grammy Award nominations, earned several Guinness World Records, and he made it to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but none of these accomplishments seemed to change the person he was off stage. Along with being shy, Michael was noticeably self conscious about his appearance. At his career peak in 1984, he signed a $5 million commercial deal with Pepsi-Cola, and was badly injured while filming. He suffered burns to his face and scalp but got plastic surgery to disguise the scars. This event triggered his recession;…

He didn’t care that the court he was playing on was dirt, or what started off as grass. Michael spent so much time playing basketball there that almost all of the grass was gone in two weeks. Michael played against his older brothers all the time who were bigger, faster and stronger, but no matter how bad they beat him, Michael never showed any sign of disappointment. This actually…
