Michael Joseph Jackson's biggest hit was Thriller, 1982, the best selling album of all time.
Michael has actually written most of his biggest hits such as Billie Jean and Smooth Criminal.
He wanted his mother to become the custodian of his children and ifshe is dead or incapable of looking after the children he wantedDiana Ross to look after them. For his estate, he left: 40% for his three children. 40% for his mother. 20% for charities . Nothing for his father Joe Jackson.

Michael wrote an autobiography "Moonwalk". I'm not sure about the others.. LaToya has a book called Growing Up in the Jackson Family and Katherine has one called My Family.
His first solo huge hit album was his fifth studio album "Off the Wall". It was released in 1979.

Probably there is no possibility to contact his family. Jackson family is a show business family. That means that they don't have private e-mail addresses. No private contact data is released to the public.
Michael Jackson's number 1 hits in 1988 included: "The Way You Make Me Feel", "Man in the Mirror" and "Dirty Diana"
In 1971 Michael was focused on his career in the Jackson 5. Michael did not have his own solo career untill 1972 with the release of "Got to be there"
Actually, it's just not Michael Jackson during that time. He's actually with the rest of the Jackson 5 who made this album: Album Title: Moving Violation Title: Forever Came Today Moving Violation (You Were Made) Especially For Me Honey Love Body Language (Do The Love Dance) All I Do Is Think Of …You Breezy Call Of The Wild Time Explosion (MORE)
Al Yankovic made two parodies of Michael Jackson's music videos. One was "Eat it" a parody if "Beat it". The other was called "Fat", a parody of "Bad". I am guessing it is on youtube!
His first big hit with The Jackson 5 was "I Want You Back" in 1969, which hit #1. As a solo artist, his first song was "Got To Be There" in 1971 which hit an impressive #4, but the next year, his song "Ben" reached #1.

Because their father didn't want them all in public,which he had to do all his life. Also he believed in education so their rich and they can afford it! hope this helped.
He didn't actually disappear, he left the hospital not too long after Michael was pronounced dead, the next day when he knew the police wanted to talk to him he showed up.
2 of his major traits were Shy and giving Michael Jackson's character traits-He is a famous pop singer aka King Of Pop. He is very nice to children and likes to be a good father of three. He made his own backyard to a fair.-Nice,rich, enjoyable and famous.
Michale Jackson was considered the King of pop, so writing and singing music. BUT is equally famous or even more so, for dancing. his speciality? The Moon Walk ;)
In many interveiws he said him and his brothers went to tutoring atleast 3 hours each day. The rest was recording/practicing songs. He liked art classes and language. He was great at writing stories to. Hope this helped!
he has vitiligo which changes the pigment of ones skin and they have a choice of leaving the light spots or bleching or whatever Michael did... at first he tried to cover it up butit got worse to the point his skin color was changed...
MichaelJackson never had a child hood at a very young age his father decided that all of his sons were to be in a band called the Jackson 5 then they did a t.v. show Michael was lead singer so he was covered by paparazzi and never was normal and that was why he was well different
