Jair Dynast expresses his thoughts on the passing of Pop Icon Michael Jackson
I’m deeply saddened by the passing of Michael Jackson. His talent touched me at a very early age. I remember the excitement I would have when the one television station we had in Barbados was going to broadcast the Grammy Awards and Michael Jackson was scheduled to perform.
My mother couldn’t afford to buy any of the jackets or his glittery glove or any of the many Michael Jackson toys on the market at the time but I would get an old glove and my moms Sun Glasses and be ready to do my own version of MJ’s moonwalks. Michael I know you are looking down on us from heaven and I’d like to thank you for the amazing songs, the inspiration I’ve gotten as a songwriter and producer from studying them and for showing us how music transcends all the borders and barriers that our society creates!
May God have mercy on your soul, Michael.
Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009)
Rest In Peace
