August 29 would have been Michael Jackson's 60th birthday.

The King of Pop made a huge impression, especially on budding artists, and he continues to inspire many others.

To commemorate Jackson's diamond anniversary, many celebrity colleagues whom he considered close friends took to Twitter to pay tribute.








Senegalese-American singer-songwriter Akon sang "Hold My Hand" with Jackson in a 2008 recording. The top 10 international hit appeared on Jackson's first posthumous album, "Michael."

Here, Akon pays tribute.

Reeling after the death of Jackson on June 25, 2009, choreographer and director Debbie Allen told CNN:

Michael Jackson is a phenomenon. I say is. He will always be. It's never was. He will always be. And our relationship was totally based on dance.

Former frontman for the Motown group The Miracles, songwriter Smokey Robinson, sent some birthday love.

Multiple Grammy-winner, singer, and record producer Pharrell Williams paid his respects to the King.

Chance The Rapper reminded people that Michael Jackson was always a hero.

Pamela Anderson paid tribute by sharing Jackson's gripping anthem, "Man in the Mirror."

Somali-American model Iman was the bored queen Jackson enchanted in the epic Egyptian-inspired "Remember the Time" music video. She will always remember their time working together.


Michael Jackson's personal physician, Conrad Murray, said he discovered Jackson's lifeless body inside the singer's home in Holmby Hills in Los Angeles. He reportedly died from a propofol and benzodiazepine overdose on June 25, 2009.

At the artist's funeral on July 7, 2009, Motown founder Barry Gordon deemed Jackson "the greatest entertainer that ever lived," according to Contactmusic.com.

To commemorate the Moonwalker's 60th birthday, his children Paris and Prince Jackson will make appearances to accept the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation Legacy Award on their late father's behalf in Las Vegas on Wednesday.

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

I always say, try everything once.

Well, now that I'm older, a caveat to that is... try it all within reason.
