Prince Michael Jackson to Represent Late Father in Berlin Auction
Michael Jackson's legacy of being kind to children in need lives on through his eldest son, Prince Michael, who is set to appear in Berlin on his father's behalf for a fundraising auction in November.
The appearance will mark the first time the younger Jackson has stepped into the limelight on his own without having a family member by his side since his father's tragic passing in 2009. The 14-year-old's involvement with the auction will entitle the sale of his famous father's handwritten composition of his hit 'Bad.' He will also walk the red carpet and present the manuscript on stage, surrounded by children, according to PEOPLE magazine's website.
Proceeds from the auction will go directly to the Tribute to Bambi foundation, which supports organizations in Germany that aid needy children. Fans have until Nov. 10 (when the auction is set to take place) to bid on the manuscript, as well as the other items, through United Charity.
The trip to Berlin will not be the first time Jackson has visited. In 2002, 5-year-old Prince spent time in the country with his father, sister Paris and brother Blanket for the same auction event. That was also the trip made famous by the legendary singer, as he dangled young Blanket over the balcony of the Adlon Hotel where he was staying, to give his adoring fans below a better look at his baby boy. That year Jackson auctioned off one of his glittery stage jackets to the cause. A few years later he donated an autographed guitar for the auction.
