Michael Joseph Jackson was an American singer, songwriter, and dancer who lived from August 29, 1958, to June 25, 2009.
He is regarded as one of the most significant cultural figures of the twentieth century for his contributions to music, dance, and fashion, as well as his publicized personal life. He is known as the "King of Pop."
He popularized complex dance moves such as the moonwalk, which he named after himself, and the robot through stage and video performances. With annual sales of over 350 million albums worldwide, he is the most awarded artist in the history of popular music and one of the best-selling music artists of all time.
Jackson died of cardiac arrest on June 25, 2009, less than three weeks before the first This Is It show in London, with all tickets sold out.
Jackson was given propofol, lorazepam, and midazolam, and an overdose of propofol killed him.

Jackson is buried in Glendale Forest Lawn Memorial Park's Holly Terrace Grand Mausoleum located in Glendale, North Los Angeles, about five miles from Hollywood.
