Cardiff hosts Michael Jackson tribute
Text size Aa Aa

Michael Jackson’s three children joined tens of thousands of the late singer’s fans in the Welsh capital Cardiff on Saturday for a memorial concert.

Prince, 14, Paris, 13, and 9-year old Blanket were greeted by wild applause as they took the stage dressed in outfits honouring their father’s career.

“We are very happy to be here on this special night to honour our father,” Paris told the audience.

The Michael Forever gig attracted a host of stars all singing songs made famous by Michael. They included Cee Lo Green, Beyonce, JLS and of course, the Jacksons.

The tribute coincides with the trial in California of Jackson’s former doctor who is accused of involuntary manslaugther.

Brothers Jermaine and Randy decided not to attend the concert because of the timing. Sister Janet said it would be too painful to perform at the concert during the trial.
