Michael Jackson was a shining light of creativity, innovation, talent, compassion and graciousness, according to Rick Pallack, who designed some of the singer’s clothes.
   ‘I will miss Michael dearly,’ said Pallack, in a release. ‘He was a great humanitarian and philanthropist. My heart goes out to the entire Jackson family at this tragic time. He enriched the world with his music, fashion and entertainment.’
   Among the many Pallack designs that Jackson wore was the white suit and accessories that appear on the cover of the best selling Thriller album (1982). Pallack also designed the clothes for the cover of the ‘Billie Jean’ single release.
   Pallack says he and Jackson both grew up and became teenage friends in Encino, a suburb of Los Angeles, around the same time.
