life for michael

In 1977 Michael made his first film debut when he starred in 'The Wiz' as the Scarecrow opposite Diana Ross, and at this time met Quincy Jones whom he teamed up with as his producer for his first solo album on Epic Records titled, 'Off The Wall' in 1979. 'Off The Wall' was the first ever album to spawn a record breaking 4 #1 hit songs. In 1982 Michael created the world's largest selling album of all time, 'Thriller'. This album produced 7 hit singles, breaking yet again more records, and went on to sell over 51 million copies worldwide to date. The music video for the hit song 'Billie Jean' enabled Michael to be the first black artist to have a video aired on the US music station, MTV. The 'Thriller' short film released on home video as 'The Making Of Michael Jackson's Thriller' became the world's largest selling home video. In 1983 Michael literally moonwalked into international superstardom when he performed the world famous dance step for the first time on the 'Motown 25' anniversary show. 1984 saw Michael break music history once again with being the first artist to win a record breaking 8 Grammy awards in one night; the award were for his 'Thriller' album and his work on the narrative for the 'ET Storybook'. 1985 saw the emergence of a international anthem with the release of the song 'We Are The World' which was written by Michael and Lionel Richie, and performed by 44 of the world's most popular stars (Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Cyndi Lauper, etc.). "We Are The World" raised money for 'USA For Africa', a charity raising money and awareness for the starving people in Africa
