- Story Text: Friday, June 25 is the twelfth anniversary of the sudden death of American singer Michael Jackson.
Jackson was 50 years old when he died of cardiac arrest in 2009 at his rented mansion in Los Angeles, as he rehearsed for a series of London concerts aimed at reviving his career.
After finding fame as a child in the band The Jackson Five with his brothers, Jackson made his first solo album in 1972. His hit record "Thriller" came out in 1982.
Known as the "King of Pop," Jackson's hits include "Billie Jean" and ''Beat It.''
During his career, he received 13 Grammy Awards and in 2002 he won the Artist of the Century awards at the American Music Awards.
Jackson was acquitted at a 2005 trial on charges of molesting a 13-year-old boy at his Neverland ranch in California. In 1994, he settled a sexual abuse lawsuit concerning another 13-year-old boy.
Jackson married twice and has three children named Prince Michael I, Paris Michael, and Prince Michael II.
