It’s Michael Jackson’s Birthday (August 29th)


Today, Michael Jackson would have turned 51.  MJ’s father Joe Jackson had mentioned that the body of his son would finally be buried in a private ceremony on his birthday.  But, there are now reports that the Jackson family has rescheduled funeral service for September 3, because some family members did not want to bury the star on his birthday.

Understandably so.

Michael Joseph Jackson was born on August 29 in Gary, Indiana. He started his career at the age of 5 with Jacksons 5ive, later launching his solo career that made him the most prominent entertainer in decades.

There are a few events planned to mark Michael Jackson’s birthday:

–Michael Jackson’s birthday bash will be held in New York. The public celebration will be held in Prospect Park on Saturday and will be free to attend. Thousands of people are expected to show up.
