When Michael Jackson died it was such a powerful moment for so many people, myself included. I have never been one to be a super fan of anyone, but when Michael Jackson died I felt so deeply sad. He was such a monumental figure in my lifetime. My favorite songs in the seventh grade, the ninth grade, in college--he truly had been a constant without me even realizing it, in my life. I live only down the street from his family and found myself drawn to the house nearly every day the first week of his death. The boom boxes blaring MJ tunes and the fans crying and dancing in the streets. Strangers from everywhere so profoundly and deeply affected. I wanted to capture the moments on film and video so I would never forget how powerful all that love was.
