These amazing stars are recognizable everywhere, no introductions needed.
Is there a place in this world where no one knows who Michael Jackson was? I doubt it, but I will leave an opened door in case there is one out there, somewhere, smile. He gave so much of his short life, sacrificing even his childhood just to give us his music and dancing.
What an honor I had to capture these Blues, Rock and Soul legends to enjoy and to share with you, especially during Black History Month.
Recently I went on a cruise. As some of you know, I walk daily to stay in shape. The second day, right after I walked all the outdoor and main activities decks, I decided to continue to walk the remaining stateroom decks to extend my workout.
I went all the way down to deck #1, and suddenly, I noticed a number of posters hanging on the walls. Soon I realized the historic value of what I was seeing. Therefore, while fellow cruisers decided to do a zillion unimportant fun things, I decided instead to capture the images with my IPhone.
The hallways were packed with photographs of Billie Holliday, Count Basie, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, even an 11-year old Michael Jackson, well, too many to mention.
Fortunately, some of these legends are still with us today; Liza Minelli, Diana Ross, Mick Jagger, and many more.
Needless to say, my walk for that day stopped. The collection that I had in front of me was beyond special. I had to absorb these legends now, thank them for their musical talents and the years of joy they gave to the world.
I hope that you remember these faces, enjoy my post and thank them as well.
