Michael Jackson - ICON (1 CD)
Michael Jackson was one of the most beloved entertainers and profoundly influential artists of all-time, leaving an indelible imprint on popular music and culture. Already an icon as lead singer of the Jackson 5, he started his illustrious solo artist career at the early age of 13 with hit Motown albums such as 'Got To Be There,' 'Ben' and 'Forever Michael.' Michael Jackson - ICON features his biggest Motown songs including his No. 1 smash hit "Ben," his rendition of "Rockin' Robin," which reached No. 2 on both the Billboard Hot 100 and R&B Singles charts, and his top 5 hits "Got To Be There," "I Wanna Be Where You Are" and "Just A Little Bit Of You."

During his extraordinary career, Michael Jackson sold an estimated 750 million records worldwide, won 13 GrammyCopyright Awards, received the American Music Award's Artist of the Century Award and is one of a handful of artists to be inducted twice into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Jackson's sound, style and dance moves inspired subsequent generations of pop, soul, R&B and hip-hop artists.

Featured are some of Motown's biggest hits as recorded by some of the label's legendary acts. The single-disc version of Motown Classics features 11 No. 1 Motown R&B and Pop hits including the Marvelettes' 1961 hit "Please Mr. Postman," Smokey Robinson & the Miracles' 1970 smash hit "The Tears Of A Clown," Four Tops' 1965 hit "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)" and Marvin Gaye's signature version of "I Heard It Through The Grapevine."
