I just got news that Michael Jackson died today, June 25, 2009. I was surprised at first thinking that he was not old. After further research I have found that he suffered cardiac arrest at his home this afternoon. Its said that doctors tried to get his pulse back but were not successful. He died at the age of 50. Not being grown up during his era I wasn't a big fan of his music, but I still am shocked after hearing this. He was a huge contributor to the music world all around us and I'm sure he will be missed.
