Good morning teachers and students, today I will be talking to all you about Michael Jackson and his troubled life. You’re probably wondering why I would talk about some creepy old guy, but he is an amazing talent like singing and dancing, so I decided to do my speech on him. Michael was born on the 29th of August 1958 in Gary, Indiana. He was the eighth of ten Children, The three sisters Michael had were Rebbie, La Toya, and Janet, the other five brothers were Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon, and Randy. There was a sixth brother, Brandon but sadly died shortly after he was born. In 1964 Jackie, Tito and Jermaine formed a band called the Jackson Brothers but lately Michael and Marlon Joined the band. When Michael joined the band he was doing backup vocals and some dancing. Michael then was the lead singer with his older brother Jermaine. They thought they should change the name of the band to the Jackson 5, but then in 1975 Jermaine left to have a solo career, so Randy decided to join in. They later renamed to the Jacksons. In 1979, Michael broke his nose when he was doing a complex dance routine, he had to have rhinoplasty, which is plastic surgery, but it didn’t work out the way he wanted it to. He had trouble breathing and thought his music career was all over. Michael’s skin had been a medium brown color for his entire youth, but in the 1980s, it began to go pale. This change to Michael went all around the world and people thought he was bleaching his skin. In 1986 he was diagnosed with vitiligo and lupus, the vitilgo partially lightened his skin and the lupus is a disease that cant be cured. These two illnesses made him sensitive to sunlight Michael began his solo career in 1979, with his first album he did with Quincy Jones, which was called Off the Wall. When this happened he was also still with the Jackson 5, although he did not do much with them.
