Following the success of last week’s Michael Forever tribute concert in Wales, Michael Jackson's family have announced plans for two very special charity concerts in Tokyo in December.

“If Michael was alive, he would definitely have done something to help the victims of the earthquake in Japan,” said Michael’s mother in London yesterday. “Michael loved children, he would have felt for those children who lost parents or homes.”

The Michael Jackson Tribute Live concerts will feature The Jacksons performing on stage, and will benefit ASHINAGA, a charity based in Tokyo that provides financial support to children who have lost either one or both of their parents, as well as to provide constant emotional care programs at Kobe Rainbow House, which was built in 1999 as the first day care center for orphans in Japan.

“This concert can help children,” said Janet Jackson. “I’m glad I can put smile on their faces again.”

Michael’s brother, Marlon, added: “Music can bring us together. Children can’t live without guidance. We want to point out kids to right direction. I’m pleased music can help other people.”

The concerts take place on December 13 and 14 in Tokyo, with tickets going on sale on October 12. Find out more about ASHINAGA here.
