To remember the “King of Pop” in his glory, Michael Jackson’s estate released a statement to commemorate the “Human Nature” artist on the tenth anniversary of his death. On June 25, 2009, Jackson died of acute Propofol intoxication in Los Angeles. The highly-decorated singer was 50.

The statement outlines Jackson’s importance to the worlds of fashion, music, and dance a decade after his passing. “But the true measure of Michael was his giving to others which came in many forms,” the statement continues. “He comforted the unfortunate at hospitals, in long term care facilities and at halfway houses.”

In the final paragraph of the public recollection, the estate calls for MJ’s fans to take action in making this world a better place. “But we best remember Michael by paying tribute to his legacy of philanthropic work and ask music fans everywhere to make a difference in their community— whether it’s planting a tree, volunteering at a shelter, cleaning up a public space or helping someone who is lost find their way,” the statement reads. “‘I believe each person can make a difference in the life of someone in need,'” he said. This is how we honor Michael.”
