Jackson children ensure tribute concert is a success


CARDIFF, United Kingdom - Michael Jackson’s three children helped 40,000 fans honor the late pop legend Saturday as the “Michael Forever” show in Wales overcame a troubled build up to end on a high note.

There had been doubts over whether the tribute show would go ahead after months of controversy, but the presence of Prince, 14, Paris, 13, and nine-year-old Blanket ensured a celebratory atmosphere.

Host Jamie Foxx joined Jackson brothers Marlon, Tito and Jackie at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium for a triumphant rendition of “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough” to send most of the crowd home happy.

Headliners included Christina Aguilera, Motown legend Smokey Robinson, British boy-band JLS and soul icon Gladys Knight.

Sister La Toya said afterwards “Michael was enjoying the show” and that “having all these wonderful artists coming together shows the children how special their father was”.
