In Tribute

Rashod Ollison was 6 years old when Michael Jackson's Thriller came out. He'll never forget the day his mom brought the album home. He and his sisters played it on a special record player that sprayed rainbow lights across the walls and brought joy into their house. Rashod says the album helped him get over his sadness about his parents' divorce and turned him, temporarily, into a star at school. Rashod grew up and became a music critic. Today, after Jackson's death, we share an excerpt of that interview.
