Michael Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009) was an American recording artist, entertainer and businessman. The seventh child of the Jackson family, he debuted on the professional music scene at the age of 11 as a member of The Jackson 5 in 1969, and began a solo career in 1971 while still a member of the group.
Jackson performed some magic on stage and his videos, both with the Jackson Five and solo career. At one time, Jackson had what many called his personal magician, Majestik Magnificent, on staff to perform tricks. David Copperfield designed some illusions for his 1991-1992 tour and Ed Alonzo was working with him on this 2009 tour.
Jackson held a patent on a leaning illusion that was used in his "Smooth Criminal" video.
