Michael Jackson

1958-

Singer

Michael Jackson began his singing career as a child member of the pop group "The Jackson Five," which was made up of himself and his brothers. The group enjoyed great success with hit after hit, including "A,B,C" and "One Bad Apple."

When he split off on his own, Jackson initially met with limited success. His first solo hit was "Off the Wall" and perhaps his greatest success came with the release of his album "Thriller," which set worldwide records for sales.

In recent years, Jackson's image has been tarnished by rumors of erratic behavior, and some observers feel that he is now more popular overseas than in the United States.
