American singer Janet Jackson honored her late brother and the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, on his posthumous 63rd birthday by posting a throwback picture of him on her Instagram page.
American singer and songwriter Janet Jackson is the tenth and youngest child of the famous Jackson family and has enjoyed a very successful career in music and Hollywood.
However, no member of the Jackson family is as popular and loved worldwide as Janet's older brother Michael Jackson. He held the world spellbound with his major hits and dance moves for years, which earned him the name "King of Pop."

On June 25, 2009, Michael died from cardiac arrest. His death was shocking and hard for the world to bear. He is still missed by his family, friends, loved ones, and beloved fans to date.
If Michael were alive, he would have celebrated his 63rd birthday on August 29. Although he passed on, those he left behind had many reasons to celebrate him posthumously.
Michael's sister, Janet, shared a rare throwback picture of them. The snapshot showed the famous siblings as kids. Michael sported his famous afro hairstyle, which he was known for in his youth.

He wore a sweatshirt and pants and placed his hands together while looking ahead with a serious face. Meanwhile, Janet wore a black T-shirt with a cartoon character printed on it.
She matched her top with plaid pants. While her brother had a serious look, young Janet smiled most sweetly and rested her face and shoulder on Michael as she did.
Janet was overwhelmed with the achievement and took to Twitter to thank fans.
In the post's caption, Janet wrote, "Missing you," a feeling many in the world can relate to. Many of her fans commented on the post with love emojis and tributary messages in Michael's honor.
Since Michael's death, Janet has spoken multiple times about him. In 2019, days before the 10th anniversary of her late brother's death, she said his legacy would continue.
The Jackson family has also been taking steps to keep Michael's legacy alive and plans to record a new track that features previously unheard work from him.
Michael's brother, Tito Jackson, who revealed the plans, earlier said the Jackson family was planning a reunion tour that could possibly feature Janet and other members of the famous family on stage at the same time.
Meanwhile, Janet recently had something to celebrate when her 35-year-old album, "Control," topped Apple's Top 40 US Pop Album chart on its anniversary.
Janet was overwhelmed with the achievement and took to Twitter to thank fans for making the album number one again after 35 years. She added that she never thought it could happen and expressed her love for her fans.
