Michael Jackson memorial
Today a memorial was held at the staples center in LA for the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson who died of a heart attack June 25, 2009. Tickets to the event were available allowing hundreds upon thousands to attend the final farewell including celebrity faces.
Various websites streamed live coverage of the event as well as the usual news networks such as CNN (where we saw it) allowing even more die hard MJ fans a chance to say good bye.
His family, friends and loved ones took the stage in an emotional service anybody would be proud of. Beautiful service so sad yet heart warming remembering the good times that Michael had despite the bad the world put him through.
I remember loving the song “black or white” I think I was 11 or so…big musical part of my childhood sad to see a legend go.
Michael Jackson was loved by the world over, he only wanted to heal the world despite what the media tried to make of him. Forever in our hearts, rest in peace MJ!
