I woke up this morning to the devastating news of the passing of Michael Jackson and it's been very hard to concentrate on anything else today – I'm very sad, but happy to know that he will going on to a place more peaceful than this earth.

Michael Jackson defined visual pop music and was truly an icon that I will ALWAYS remember.

My thoughts go out to all the Michael Jackson fans and friends whose lives have been greatly influenced by his music, his legend and his life.
