Michael Jackson’s Family Plan Two More Tribute Shows
Following the massive success of Michael Forever -- The Tribute Concert in Cardiff, Wales on Saturday, Michael Jackson's estate is planning two more tributes to the fallen star. Michael's siblings will perform in Tokyo, Japan; proceeds will go towards Japan’s ASHINAGA charity, which helps child survivors of the tragedy.
Katherine Jackson told WENN, “If Michael was alive, he would definitely have done something to help the victims of the earthquake in Japan. Michael loved children, he would have felt for those children who lost parents or homes.” It isn't clear yet if Michael's own children will be present at the Tokyo tributes.
Tickets go on sale today for the concerts, which will take place on Dec. 13 and 14.
It's a pleasant bit of news amid myriad coverage about Jackson's death and Conrad Murray's trial, one much more fitting of the legacy the King of Pop wanted to leave behind: A brilliant artist with a soft spot for children in need. It's commendable that his family is continuing his charity work. We wonder if their motto is "Don't stop 'til you get enough ... Donations."
