Below are all the dates of events in October 1970 as
they are a token of one's dreams fullfilled
in the hope it would inspire you to
chase your own dreams.
As dates in HIStory books or Documentaries are not just
figures and words. They tell a story of dreams and
sacrifices to entertain or give solace to the ones who need it.
So let's honor Michael Jackson here for
the 'greatness' he brought to brighten our lives.

the 'maturity' of an 'old Professional' and sings with
a soulful voice evident only among Motown's TOP range stars.
