Happy 47th Birthday Miss Janet Jackson!

‘Dreams can become a reality when we possess a vision that is characterized by the willingness to work hard, a desire for excellence, and a belief in our right and our responsibility to be equal members of society.’

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – there’s no one quite like Miss Janet Damita Jo Jackson (Al Mana), Miss Jackson if ya nasTAYY!!

Icon, legend, singer, actor, producer, dancer, author – the list goes on!

With over 150 million records sold, over 3 decades of ground-breaking music, videos, choreography and chart-domination, every music award under her belt, a discography beyond compare – Janet Jackson remains one of the highest selling artists in the history of contemporary music, and of course, one of THE most respected.

As Miss Jackson turns an unbelievable 47 years old today, I take this opportunity to thank the living legend and her music, which has helped a gazillion fans (including me) to follow their heart, dare to dream their dreams, and eventually succeed in living the life they have always desired.

Happy Birthday Janet! Your music continues to inspire me in every possible way. Through thick and thin, through darkness and light, through sorrow and happiness – thank you from the bottom of my heart for making me realize I’m special!
