You will never be forgotten.
Yeah, you knew I had to post this.

Michael Jackson.

What an incredible man. Honestly, his memorial service was one of the most beautiful, emotional things I think I have ever seen. Celebrities paying their respects, friends, family, fans, everyone there just to honor the man he was, and still is. Stevie Wonder sang. You could hear the emotion, and the love coming through his voice. John Mayer played an amazing guitar solo. Jennifer Hudson sang brilliantly. A finalist from Britain's Got Talent sang, a young boy, which was very touching. Brooke Shields spoke of their friendship. Kobe Bryant and Magic Johnson spoke of their friendship. Martin Luther King III spoke. And Michael's brother Jermaine sang MJ's favourite song 'Smile'. Incredible. And there were huge numbers at the end, everyone onstage, singing. It was phenomenal. In my opinion, the most emotional moment of the whole thing was when Paris Katherine Jackson, his daughter, spoke. She just displayed her love for her father, but in a way that touched everyone watching. You could feel the pain in her voice, but you also knew that she knew he was better off. In an earlier speech by Rev. Al Sharpton, it was said:  "Nothing is strange about your Daddy, it was strange what your Daddy had to deal with", I think this is such an amazing quote. I was never by any means a fanatic of Michael Jackson, but now i really see how big an impact he made on the world. RIP King of Pop, you will not be forgotten. It doesn't matter if you're a fan or not, this clip of Paris his 11 year old daughter is the most touching ever.

"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." - Paris Katherine Jackson
