It is a tragic day for the world of music as King of Pop Michael Jackson died of cardiac arrest at 3 am (IST) in Los Angeles.Paramedics were called to the his home around midday local time after he suffered a suspected cardiac arrest. He was rushed by an ambulance to a medical centre, while several US media outlets started saying that the 50-year-old star has died.He has had a history of health problems because of which he could not do any concert in 12 years.Crowds had begun to gather outside the hospital. Really it’s a sad for his fans. Jackson began his career as a child in his family group The Jackson 5. He then went on to achieve global fame as a solo artist with smash hits such as Thriller and Bad. But the singer had been dogged by controversy and money trouble in recent years, becoming a virtual recluse. Known as the "King of Pop," for hits that includedThriller and Billie Jean, Jackson's dramatic, one-gloved stage presence and innovative dance moves were imitated by legions of fans around the world.His lifetime record sales tally was believed to be around 750 million, and with his 13 Grammy Awards and boundary-breaking music videos he was one of the most successful entertainers of all time. He is still living thru his music in everyone's heart.Long live his legacy.He's been true inspiration to the world, who carried music on his shoulder. Will surely miss his moonwalks.
