Today we commemorate the birthday of the late Michael Jackson, born August 29, 1958.

At his prime, Michael Jackson was the undisputed biggest selling act in the world. Jackson's career spanned 40 years, spawning nine solo albums of original music and innumerable compilation and remix projects. His last album, Invincible, was released in 2001. For some, Michael will be most fondly remembered by those who watched him grow up through the 19 albums he recorded as the precocious lead singer of The Jackson 5 and later as the young adult star of The Jacksons. He sold a combined, worldwide total of 750 million records over his career, 50 million for Thriller alone. Twenty-seven years after the 1982 release of Thriller, Michael Jackson still holds the record for the best selling album of all-times.  Other commercial highlights include the best-selling Victory tour with his brothers, the Jacksons, and the co-writing (with Lionel Richie) of the first major charity single "We Are The World" for USA for Africa, a star-studded effort that resulted in a number one single that earned millions for famine relief.
