Own Mint Stamp Tributes to the King of Pop –
The world first met the six-year-old Michael Jackson in 1964, outshining his older brothers as part of the Jackson 5. In 1971, Michael embarked on a solo career that took the world by storm. For three decades, he topped music charts and performed sold-out concerts. His tours sold millions of tickets – a rare achievement even today.
Over 30 years after its release, Michael’s Thriller album is still the best-selling album of all time. His music videos were extravagant productions featuring elaborate sets and costumes, celebrity cameos and of course, Michael’s electrifying dance moves. Michael once said, “My goal in life is to give to the world what I was lucky to receive: the ecstasy of divine union through my music and my dance.” And he did that, popularizing such moves as the robot and astounding crowds as he glided effortlessly across the stage with his famous moonwalk.
Throughout his career, Michael Jackson received more music awards than any other artist. He set and shattered countless records, and still holds many today. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice (as part of the Jackson 5 and as a solo artist) and holds a number of Guinness World Records – including “Most Successful Entertainer of All Time.” Aside from his musical accomplishments, Michael also donated millions of dollars, his time and his name to 39 charities (more than any other pop singer). In addition, he created the Heal the World Foundation to supply medicine to children and fight world hunger, homelessness and child exploitation.
