Jackson's 19-year-old son, Prince Jackson, took some time out to remember his father on his special day by sharing a sonnet written about Jackson, asking fans to remember the legendary singer as a man and not just a musical icon. The poem emphasizes Jackson's more personal roles as a "son, brother, and father."
"Today we celebrate the birthday of a legend, but don't forget to celebrate the Man," Prince wrote on his social media accounts. "Here is a sonnet written for him."
Prince is no doubt making the Jackson family proud, recently starting a Los Angeles production company appropriately named King's Son. He also appears to enjoy a close relationship with the Jackson family. Earlier this month, he shared a family photo reuniting with his grandpa, 88-year-old Joe Jackson, in Las Vegas.
Meanwhile, Prince's younger sister, 18-year-old Paris Jackson, has chosen to remember her father by dedicating multiple tattoos to him. In April, she got the words "Queen of my heart" in her dad's handwriting down the side of her left wrist.
"To everyone else he was the King of Pop. To me, well, he was the king of my heart," she wrote about her meaningful ink.
Aside from Prince and Paris, Jackson is also survived by his youngest child, 14-year-old Blanket.
