Today marks the one year anniversary of Michael Jackson's death. The performer died at the age of 50 after going into cardiac arrest in his home last year. Chances are wherever you were one year ago, his music was playing in the background, and tonight you can expect the same. WCBS reports that Manhattan clubs are planning tribute nights, and the Apollo Theater, where many fans flocked a year ago, honored him earlier today.

Jackson performed with his brothers at the Apollo in the 60s, as part of amateur night, and earlier this year the theater inducted him into their Hall of Fame. Today they hosted a commemoration of Jackson's life in front of the plaque honoring him, where Jonelle Procope, President & CEO of the Apollo Theater Foundation, read a letter from Katherine Jackson about her son’s relationship to the Apollo. Later this afternoon (around the time of Jackson's death) Rev. Al Sharpton is expected to hold a moment of silence from Harlem.

Here's a look back at Jackson's time in NYC, which included trips to Studio 54 (once with a then 10-year-old Anderson Cooper!). And now, watch the Martin Scorsese-directed "Bad" video, which was filmed at the Hoyt-Schermerhorn stop in Brooklyn (where there is still no mural dedicated to him).
