The Michael Jackson tribute is set to air tomorrow, and fans, performers, and the Jackson family are touching down in the U.K. excited for Michael Forever.
The Jackson family has faithfully been attending the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, Michael’s doctor who faces manslaughter charges in MJ’s death. Michael’s mother Katherine Jackson released a statement sharing her appreciation for those that are supporting this event, saying:
“I am greatly honored with much appreciation toward the generosity that Global Live Events has shown by planning this tribute event on behalf of my late son, Michael…
“I will be there along with as many members of my family that are available. I am positive that this event will be an event great enough in scale, talent and imagination to form a worthy celebration of Michael’s life. It is intended to be the biggest, and the best concert event in the world for many years to come. This is how Michael would have wanted it and I am sure it will be exactly that.
“Thank you WORLD for your LOVE and SUPPORT! I’ll see you on October 8th, 2011!”
Michael Forever will feature performances by Leona Lewis, Cee-Lo Green, Beyonce, and Christina Aguilera.
