Michael Jackson Tribute Videos
Michael Jackson died on June 25th, 2009 at the age of 50 as a result of cardiac arrest. Rest In Peace, Michael. Fans from all over the world have been mourning the loss of the "King of Pop." Many have made Tribute Videos on YouTube.
Michael Jackson was a star as a child, as a member of the Jackson 5. But he became a superstar through the brilliant use of a new media, music videos. It is fitting that many of his fans are using the new media of YouTube videos to express their feelings about the death of Michael Jackson.
Here are a bunch of videos that document people's reaction to the death of Michael Jackson, and tributes to him, which I have found in my subscriptions list over the last few days.

Enjoy my brothers and sisters +YB
I tore up the shadows
In a beautiful way
The night was exhausted
what a beautiful day
Had His reasons
But needed a place to go
everything has its' season...
Such a beautiful time
to move the light
What if I was born wrong?
Maybe just right!
Maybe all of the trouble
Wasn't worth all the trouble...
Maybe all of the pain was the worth the pain?
Just wanted it to be so beautiful like this...
Maybe it is just so beautiful like this...
He showed me the right from wrong, the magic that's in a song
Tough work for the strong!
It's justice that He's bringing.
It's hidden inside a song. No one's stuck in the middle...
the battle is already won.
