Michael Jackson Death: Third Anniversary Of Pop Legend's Passing

Three years ago America lost its celebrated King of Pop.

It seems like only yesterday a little boy from Gary, Indiana stole our hearts with a smile and a voice as big as his afro. Since the Jackson 5, Michael Jackson's climb to the top was inevitable. His legendary high tenor vocals and hauntingly beautiful melodies will always be on constant repeat in the soundtrack of our lives.

His music had the power to 'thrill' us, make us want to be 'Bad', and rock the night away. It taught us to love our eccentricities, to accept 'human nature', and that we aren't alone in this world. Most importantly, it taught us that we have the power to make this world a better place by simply looking in the mirror.

In celebration of Michael Jackson's lasting legacy here are a few of our favorite videos.
