The Michael Jackson memorial was the most touching memorial I have ever
been to. People from all over the world flew in to witness such a
musical icon be laid to rest. It was emotional from the start! The Jackson brothers carried Michael out all wearing one rhinestone glove. Every appearance was so special and heartfelt, from Mariah Carey, to Usher to Jennifer Hudson. You could tell that every performer had a hard
time holding back tears.
I think the entire Staples Center started
crying when Michael’s daughter Paris spoke on stage. She really wanted
to say some words about her father and I think it was very courageous
and brave for an 11 year old to speak in front of so many people. I watched it again on TV when I got home, but there was nothing like the energy in that
room. There was laughter and tears and every emotion. You could literally feel the
love. Everyone was united in the same room for the same reason, to celebrate Michael’s life and achievements. I’ll never forget it.
