With less than a week to go until the Michael Forever Tribute in Cardiff, Wales on October 8th, Michael Jackson's sister La Toya Jackson has announced she will be among the performers.
Having put music performances behind her for almost twenty years, she has decided there is no better time to perform from her heart.
“I have put musical performance behind me for roughly two decades, but there will never be another magical moment such as this to celebrate Michael with his fans to perpetuate the importance of his legacy,” she said. “I am honoured to share the stage with the incredible performers in this line up and am certain that nothing would make my brother smile bigger or brighter than this tribute concert. In speaking with my mother yesterday, I asked her where she thinks Michael would rather have us be, in this courtroom filled with negativity and lies or on a stage celebrating his music, his legacy and his life and she said without a second of thought, ‘Celebrating his Life with family and fans. I am looking forward to putting on a great show and making my brother proud.’”
Other musical legends set to perform at the tribute concert include the Black Eyed Peas, Jamie Foxx, Christina Aguilera, Craig David, Leona Lewis, Smokey Robinson,Gladys Knight, Alien Ant Farm, Jackson Brothers: Tito, Marlon, and Jackie, Alexandra Burke, JLS, Diversity, Pixie Lott, as well as the next generation of Jacksons, the international multi-platinum artists, 3T. Beyonce, 16 time Grammy Award winning recording artist, will perform via satellite.
Michael Forever is a heart-warming show created to honour Michael as a musical icon that will forever be loved, admired and remembered!
