The music industry suffered a tremendous loss today, June 25, 2009, when news of Michael Jackson's passing was announced this morning. He suffered from cardiac arrest.

Starting out as a member of the Jackson 5 and performing as early as the 1960's, Jackson soon proved to the world that this was only precedent to the success he was to achieve in the coming years. He was involved in all aspects of the music industry and was known as an all-around performer. To date, he has been inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, has won 13 Grammys, sold an estimated 750 million records, have 13 No. 1 singles, and has a string of world records under his belt. Already in the ranks of legends the likes of Elvis Presley and The Beatles, Jackson will definitely go down in history as one of the most celebrated and influential artists of his generation, and even of the following generations.

The highly talented and highly publicized "King of Pop" has been setting up for a string of concerts that were set to be staged this coming July. The cardiac arrest was reportedly followed by a coma, after which he was rushed to the hospital. He was pronounced dead on arrival. Jackson was 50.
