He was the seventh of the nine children of Joseph and Katherine Jacksons. His family was not wealthy. He did not have an easy childhood. You can even say that he did not have it at all.

Michael began performing on stage at the age of five. He was practicing all the time. He performed in this band in the years 1964-1980. Later he left the group. In 1982 he released the album "Thriller", thanks to which he became really famous. This album is the best-selling record in the world and is still being bought by Michael's fans around the world.
