Fans are still remembering Michael Jackson as one of the greatest entertainers that ever lived, and will commemorate the fifth anniversary of his death over the next few days. The icon passed away on June 25, 2009 at the age of 50 of cardiac arrest from a lethal dose anesthetic propofol. His physician Conrad Murray was later convicted of involuntary manslaughter and served a short stint in prison. The world mourned the singer who had touched so many hearts with his music, but even in death, Jackson’s legacy and music lives on.
