Access requires authentication through Films on Demand.
This film celebrates the joyous and timeless music of Michael Jackson, from his first recordings with the Jackson 5; through hit after hit from the '70s, '80s, and '90s; right up to his final cuts - and in so doing tells the story of a true pop genius the way it really happened. Rare performance and interview footage of Michael is featured, along with archival material featuring Jacko in a number of seldom-seen settings; contributions from friends, those who have worked closely with him, and the finest industry broadcasters and writers; plus location shoots, news clips, and a host of other features all set to a backdrop of Michael Jackson music. There's very little left to say about Michael Jackson that, by now, hasn't been said a million times. So after the media frenzy in which every microsecond of his tragically short life has been put under the microscope, every controversy and indiscretion has been magnified to extremes, and every word he ever uttered in public has been repeated again and again, all we can say is "Thank you for the music."
