Praise for Michael Jackson from 25 Korean Singers
Michael Jackson died in a LA residence on the 25th. Last year marked the 25th anniversary release of his signature album ‘Thriller (1982)’. The Korean version of the album included liner notes from 25 of the country’s most famous singers and became a hot topic of discussion at the time.
‘Thriller’ was the album that anointed Michael Jackson with the title of the “King of Pop”. It also heavily influenced many singers in Korea. Right now, the whole world is mourning the death of Michael Jackson. But here we will take another look at the 25 of the congratulatory messages that celebrated the 25th anniversary.
“It’s probably natural that we wouldn’t know too much about many of the events that occurred 25 years before we were born. But what we do know for certain is how important Michael Jackson was and how much he influenced pop music 25 years ago and also from then until this very day. And that all that began with this very album.”
