(AURN) -- We will, of course, never know whether the concerts Michael Jackson was planning to do five years ago would have provided the boost his career needed. But we do know that in the years since his 2009 death, the financial status of his estate, and in some ways his career itself have been on the rise. 

Jackson's estate has earned more than $600 million since he died. That's enough to wipe out its debt and tuck away money for his mother and his three children, Prince, Paris and Blanket. Last month, Jackson was featured in a nationally televised hologram performance. An album he dropped earlier this year made its debut at number two on the music charts. And there is also a traveling Cirque de Soleil show based on his music.
