Charice Pempengco pays tribute to Michael Jackson

Thanks to Bitstop, I was able to watch the concert of Charice Pempengco last night at SMX Convention Center. One of the things I found out was that she is supposed to perform with Pop King Michael Jackson in his upcoming concert.

With Michael Jackson's sudden death, this will no longer be possible. However, Charice rendered two numbers to honor the pop king. Enjoy!

Touched by Michael Jackson

I am one of the many who was touched by Michael Jackson's music back in the elementary and high school days. Those were the times when dancing PYT, Wanna Be Starting Something, Billy Jean, Beat It, and Thriller makes you cool. Being able to dance strut and moonwalk was the in thing. Even local celebrities like Gary Valenciano and Aga Mulach became popular then for being able to perform Michael Jackson numbers on stage.

How he changed since Thriller was I assume were brought on by the pressure of his popularity where he was always being watched.

His song, particularly Thriller, was such a rare piece that it even allowed a drug rehabilitation center in Cebu attain popularity.

But today, news about Michael Jackson's death by heart attack, ripples online and most of the tech-savvy first heard about it via social media or network sites Twitter and Facebook.

Rest in peace Michael Jackson. You will always be remembered. Have a great journey ahead!
