 Much has been said about the incredible abilities Michael Jackson had as a
singer and a dancer but much less is said about his skills as a
songwriter. In fact, few people think of him as a songwriter.
But the truth, is he wrote many of his most well known hit songs himself. 

Mr. Jackson was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2002.

The king of pop is in the hall of fame and the news has people dancing.

A big celebration was held Sunday to mark Michael Jackson’s induction into the National Museum of Dance and Hall Of Fame in Saratoga Springs.

Jackson’s brother Marlon — a former member of the Jackson Five — was in Saratoga Springs to represent the family.
