Jackson is foundly remembered for a variety of things. From his music to his iconic moonwalk to his ever changing appearance and mostly his humanitarian work. MJ courted controversy for very many things back in the day. But in all above, it was his music that touches a lot of fans and resonated with millions around the world and is rightly called one of the greatest entertainers in world of music.

Here are some of his Unforgettable Legacy.

1. He changed what music videos and live performance was supposed to be seen as.

He pioneered a new era in music, catching the attention of his audience with cinematic and special effects Marvel like "Thriller." He even tried out magic to enchant audiences on his multi-million-dollars tours. Jackson once said, "An artist imagination is his greatest tool. It can transport you to a different place altogether."

2. Controversy had cash value when it came to MJ.

Jackson's controversies and accusations were and are still multi-million-dollars industry. Tabloids kept buzzing about a lot of things he did. One tell-all author, the artist former publicist admitted to writing an unofficial Jackson biography because he was broke. If such reports are true and his own family saw the value of creating controversy to milk him money, it's easy to believe so called friends and certainly strangers looked at Jackson as potential source of easy income.

3. He set the pace when it comes to modern-day philanthropy and charity.

Through his star power, he brought many others entertainers together to perform charity anthems like "Heal The World" and "We Are The World."

5. Despite controversy sorrounding MJ, his impact on music and popular culture endures.

"Thriller" remains the world second-most sold album and Jackson's signature move, 'The Moonwalk' is iconic as ever.
