The world hasn’t been the same since the untimely death of Michael Jackson last week.  It is still almost surreal and fans from across the globe are grieving over the loss of one of the greatest pop icons of our time.

MJ was known for his theatrical performances and his killer dance moves.  Therefore, it was only appropriate that MJ‘s memorial was filled with star studded tribute performances, touching words from his family, and support from fans across the world.

The memorial was held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles with a packed audience of 17,500; not to mention the thousands of fans that waited outside the arena and an estimated several hundred million viewers from across the globe.

Several performances were held in his honor from Lionel Richie, Stevie Wonder, Mariah Carey, John Mayer, and Usher.  Sources say Mariah Carey’s performance wasn’t up to her usual standards due to her sentiments at the moment.  Nevertheless, the tributes were orchestrated beautifully with Usher’s rendition arguably the most touching.  He sang one of MJ‘s songs, “Gone to Soon”, which MJ had written in the early 90′s when one of his friends had passed away from HIV.

With all the stars in attendance, performers, and guest speakers, the moment of the memorial which probably brought the world to tears simultaneously was when  MJ‘s daughter Paris asked for the microphone.  She went on to say, “”I just wanted to say…ever since I was born, daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine…and I just wanted to say I love him so much,”.

….And so does the rest of the world.

The memorial service highlighted Michael Jackson not only for his musical achievements, but also Michael Jackson the man.

And as his legend will continue to live on…the world will continue to celebrate his life and music.
