Share story


Thirty years ago today, Michael Jackson made music history by winning a record eight Grammy awards in one night. Most were for the album "Thriller" -- one of the most successful records of all time. But one of those Grammys was for something completely different.

Jackson was the narrator on an audio-book version of the movie "E.T." It won "Best Children's Recording".
