An American recording artist, dancer, singer-songwriter, musician, and philanthropist, referred to as the King of Pop, Jackson is recognized as the most successful entertainer of all time by Guinness World Records.

The seventh child of the Jackson family, he debuted on the professional music scene along with his brothers as a member of The Jackson 5, then the Jacksons in 1964, and began his solo career in 1971.
