Today marks the one year anniversary of the death of Michael Joseph Jackson.

The man recognized as the” Most Successful Entertainer Of All Time” and throned the” King of Pop” was 50-years-old when he died June 25, 2009 after going into cardiac arrest.

Although Jackson was known for his tumultuous life of scandal and bizarre behavior, he is arguably more known for his timeless music.

His album Thriller is the best selling album of all time and during his lifetime he boasted 13 U.S. number one singles, won 13 Grammy awards and in total sold over 800 million albums worldwide.

With his music archived in history and his three surviving children set to inherit $33 million each, Michael Jackson’s legacy will carry on for generations to come.
