World Mourns at Jackson’s Memorial

Michael Jackson Grinning Like an IdiotThe world gathered to bid goodbye to Michael Jackson on 7th July at Staples Centre. Jackson had expired on 25th June at Los Angeles in the US due to cardiac arrest. With MJ’s death, the pop world is hit by an irreparable damage.

Jackson’s 11 year old daughter Paris came forward to pay tribute to her legendary father. She was quoted saying “Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine”. This was the first time Paris spoke in public in front of millions of people across the world. Dressed in a black costume, Paris said that she wished to tell her father how much she love him before tears rolled down her cheeks.

The ceremony included two hours of music and many celebrities. The first performance was given by Mariah Carey and Trey Lorenz for the song “I’ll be there”, a hit for both Jackson and her. Mariah, dressed in black, started the song alone but was soon joined by Trey. Photographs of the king of pop were constantly being flashed on a huge screen.

Usher, a close associate of MJ sang “Gone too soon”. Usher started the song sitting on a chair, but later rose and walked through the stage to Jackson’s family. He stopped in front of Jackson’s coffin placing his hand over it. He became emotional before he could complete the song, his voice quivering, and finally completed the song with tearful eyes.

Hudson paid tribute by singing “Will you be there”, a gospel inspired song of Michael, surrounded by dancers in white.

The youngest singer of the memorial ceremony was 12 year old Shaheen Jafargholi. He competed for “Britain’s got talent” in the UK. He sang “Who’s lovin’ you”. MJ had invited him for his upcoming concerts at London’s O2 Arena. Before Shaheen’s performance, Robinson told Jackson “I love you, my brother. I celebrate your life, and I am glad I had the pleasure to know you”.

Brooke Shields, a good friend of Jackson, remembered him with tearful eyes. She spoke of the days when Michael and she were kids. She had met Jackson at the age of 13. She said that for them their friendship was “the most natural and easiest of all”. Shields recalled some doting memories of Jackson and their friendship of decades. She mentioned that Michael’s favorite song was “Smile” by Charlie Chaplin. She concluded by saying “Michael saw everything with his heart. Today, although our hearts are aching, we need to look up where he is undoubtedly perched in a crescent moon, and we need to smile”.

Dressed in dark suit, Michael’s brother Jermaine Jackson sang the song “Smile”. His voice trembled at the beginning, but grew stronger later on. Michael’s fans rose to their feet.

Homer once said “Life and death are balanced on the edge of a razor”. People who love deeply have no fear of death. Michael didn’t have. He was a king, king of the pop world. He lived like a king and died like a king. The world mourns over the death of this legendary personality.
