DJ Cassidy has spun during the inauguration of Barack Obama and at the wedding of Jay-Z and Beyonce, but Thursday night, he only spun for Michael Jackson.

Look back at the life of Michael Jackson.

At a tribute to the late King of Pop at NYC nightclub 1Oak, DJ Cassidy played countless Jackson songs and released a statement to Usmagazine.com about his musical inspiration: "The red in my jeans, the sequin in my lapel, the bow in my tie. The length of my pants, the leather in my blazer, the white in my suit. The rhythm in my step, the turn of my table, the peak of the party. I Remember The Time I realized The Way You Make Me Feel. I Blamed It On The Boogie but it was just Human Nature. You were Bad; you will always be Bad. I Can¹t Help It, Mike; I Never Can Say Goodbye. I Want You Back. Until the day I Burn This Disco Out, I will always Rock With You. Thank you for making me believe in magic."
