Yesterday marked the death of one of the most influential people in the history of music, Michael Jackson. At the young age of 50 the King of Pop died suddenly after being rushed to a hospital after suffering a heart attack. Unless you’ve been hiding in a cave I’m sure you’ve noticed the public response to this tragedy has been nothing short of amazing and although his life has also been full of some not-so-good scandals and legal issues, it’s good to see that upon his death everyone’s remembering him for the worldwide icon and voice of a generation that he was to many us (including myself).
All of this Internet activity also got me wondering how many new Michael Jackson related Hubs had been published since the news of his death had broke yesterday afternoon. After doing a little bit of research and after a few searches I estimate that there has been over 150 new Hubs published on the King of Pop. I guess that’s our HubPages way to saying goodbye to a guy who has impacted so many lives — good thing that all of his music will still live on forever.
p.s. The guy sure was a showman, eh? — wow.
