Rest In Peace Michael Jackson

     It’s definitely NO understatement… when people speak of the King of Pop, it’s without a doubt our very own Michael Jackson they’re speaking of… It’s a sad day for not only the music world, but for the humanitarian world, for a world full of people who was not only influenced by Michael, but who … Continue reading
