Michael Jackson Converts to Islam

Michael or Mikaeel?USA 

Ever wonder what would be next for Michael Jackson?

He has reportedly converted to Islam and changed his name to Mikaeel after one of Allah’s angels.

Jackson, 50, was raised a Jehovah’s Witness.   

He pledged allegiance to the Koran in a Shahada ceremony (the Muslim declaration of belief) presided over by an Imam.

Cat Stevens, who famously converted to Islam and now goes by Yousef Islam, was on hand to celebrate the conversion. 

Love Cat Stevens.  Here’s one from the old days.  Beautiful.:: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsAfW2sjl9I
