Three Years After His Death, Michael Jackson's Legacy Lives on

The legacy of Michael Jackson lives on in these thrilling King of Pop tributes. Three years after his passing, MJ is still having a tremendous impact in the world. His iconic status has been immortalized in an incredible variety of ways from intense emotional tributes to edible King of Pop confections.
