Taking a detour from my regular posts I had to say something. Today the world lost a man who has possibly impacted on more people than almost any other in recent history. As with Elvis and The Beatles, he was a revolutionary in music and through this he sent some awesome messages. I remember it like it was yesterday, singing "Heal the World" at our school assembly in primary school and memorising every word of the Thriller album my dad has in his collection. Despite the controversy and accusations that dogged him, he still managed to hold onto his avid fans and create new generations of admirers. He will be missed. Insha allah may Allah have mercy on him and grant him Jannah.
For those who need a reminder, here is an encore... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W61Q-EZ8R7M&NR=1
