Michael Jackson Memorial


Last Edited: July 7, 2009, 4:28 pm

Today on all the major networks the Michael Jackson Memorial was aired from approx. 1:00pm - 3:45pm EDT. I watched the entire service on CNN and I have to say it was the most moving service I have ever seen. I laughed, cried and sung along the entire time. Jennifer Hudson, Jermaine Jackson, Shaheen Jafargholi and Usher's performances stood out the most in my mind and I will remember them for a long time.

I watched & recorded it. It could not have been better organized in such a short time frame. Mariah is my girl, but Jermaine tore it up. *JUST SMILE*

I thought that someone would've sung "Never can say goodbye" but I enjoyed the whole event. Well done

Rest In Peace, Michael

I cried as well when I listened to Michael's friends and family talk about him, and show footage of him...
The music world will have a big void without him, as feel as the fans who's lives he touched with his talent and music..!!

I was at work, and about to walk pass a T.V. and noted Usher singing, "Gone too soon." I had to fight back the tears. I wish I could have seen it all. I'll watch tonights special airing on CBS 48 hours, a tribute to Michael Jackson.

I am speechless, the memorial today was so touching and when Usher sang gone too soon it was so timely. I commend the co-ordinators and participants.

He may be gone but not forgotten. Its hurts me to see he go in that manner. But I didn't realize that he didn't never live a normal life. Little things he wanted to do but couldn't. It seems he was trapped in this world, from people/fans always wanted a piece of him. Now he can final live a normal live. Something he never got to expericence. I wish he R.I.P.

I only saw the last part of it right before Smokey. I recorded it but I might just watch it online. Can't wait to see it.
