Friday, June 25 marks the one-year anniversary of the shocking death of Michael Jackson, the King of Pop. ET remembers the entertainer's life during the 1970s.
Despite entertaining audiences since the '60s, Michael Jackson's illustrious career began to really ramp up in the early 1970s. With the Jackson Five's smash hits "ABC," "I'll be There" and "The Love You Save," 1970 proved to be just the start of the singer's prolific career. In 1972, Jackson came out with the single "Ben," which became a No. 1 hit song. In 1978, Michael decided to jump to the big screen in Sydney Lumet's popular film 'The Wiz.' As the age of disco came to a close, the soon-to-be King of Pop released his 1979 breakthrough album Off the Wall, featuring the classic hits "Don't Stop 'til You Get Enough" and "Rock with You." Take a look at pictures of Michael and the Jackson Five as they brought Motown to the masses throughout the '70s.
