Three years later: Remembering Michael Jackson (video)

Remembering Michael Jackson's life and death. The outpouring of love and grief following his death provide yet another memory of this great entertainer and his impact.

LOS ANGELES, June 26, 2012 — Three years ago, on June 25, 2009, Michael Jackson died of an overdose of a doctor administrated drug, propofol. Now we honor the memory of King Pop Michael Jackson’s death by listening to his music, telling the stories of flamboyant concerts, and relating those wonderful “the first time I heard…” tales that just keep getting better with age.

Following Jackson’s untimely death, a very public, yet somehow intimate, memorial service was held in Los Angeles California at the Staples Center. By then the years-long investigation into the context of his death had begun in earnest.

Dr. Conrad Murray has since been convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the case, and several posthumous albums of Jackson have been released to the public, including “Immortal,” a soundtrack to a Jackson-themed Cirque du Soleil show, and “Michael,” an album of the unreleased recordings and recording in “the vault.”

In June of 2009, Hip Hop Republican blog Video reporter, Douglas Husar took a video camera out to the streets of the Hollywood Star walkway to bear witness to the many tributes to Jackson’s memory that had begun to appear. Fans from all around the world paid their respects by placing a steady stream of flowers, cards, balloons, and candles seemingly everywhere to honor the memory of the iconic King of Pop.

At Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, where Michael Jackson is interred in the mausoleum, colorful long-stemmed roses and other flowers, were displayed in abundance. Faithful fans cried and sang his songs amongst the beautiful bouquets, teddy bears, stuffed animals, postcards and flowers—sent from as far away as China, Japan, Rome, Italy and Russia—all crowding the makeshift memorial site.

The outpouring of love, and grief following Jackson’s death are collectively just one more memory of this great entertainer and his impact.

Take time to remember Michael Jackson by watching Douglas Husar’s video, taped 3 years ago only 3 days after Michael Jackson’s death. We apologize for the camera shake, but we had to keep moving. (Video date: June 2009)
