youth voices on michael jackson


it's hard not to be moved and overwhelmed by the outpouring of reflection, sadness, memories, and testimonials in response to the sudden death of michael jackson. what i've been particularly struck by, however, have been the responses of adolescents, many of whom were born within the last two decades and whose current music artists claim to be influenced by the musical stylings pioneered by a true individual.

here's a taste of what i've heard and read, from a youth perspective:

I'm avoiding the work I'm supposed to be doing by searching for interesting MJ-related commentary. :) But I'm really impressed by what you found - and glad that many youth value MJ's musical contributions instead of merely pay attention to the scandals and gossip that have clouded his image, which I assume dominated the last two decades/their lives.
