What Michael Jackson’s daughter said about her father ten years ago

Los Angeles / The posthumous tribute to Michael Jackson served to extol his humanity and artistic talent as well as his little known side of father.

The daughter of the king of pop, Paris Jackson, 11, broke down in tears on stage at the Staples Center sports hall in Los Angeles at the end of the ceremony when she took the microphone to vindicate the criticized figure of the singer.

“He has been the best father you can imagine” said the girl accompanied with her uncle and aunt.

The unexpected testimony of Paris was the culmination of a gala televised around the world where they remembered the musical successes of Jackson’s career as Heal The World or We Are The World and with the participation of artists such as Mariah Carey, Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie or Jennifer Hudson.

One of the most significant moments was when Jermaine Jackson, brother of the king of pop, covered the song Smile, Michael’s favourite song written by Charles Chaplin.

Actresses like Brooke Shields and Queen Latifah or idols of the Lakers like Kobe Bryant or Magic Johnson influenced the greatness of Jackson through personal anecdotes and highlighting their contributions to charitable organizations.

More than 17,000 fans attended the solemn recital that lasted for more than two hours and was chaired by Michael Jackson’s golden coffin. (July 7, 2009, EFE/Practica Español)
