I’ve got more videos from today’s Michael Jackson Memorial after the jump. Mariah Carey and Trey Lorenz sang a shaky “I’ll Be There”, Brooke Shields gave a moving eulogy to a friend. As someone mentioned in comments, it was one of the few relationships up on that stage that wasn’t about commerce. Jermaine Jackson sang Micheal’s favorite song, “Smile”, written by Charlie Chaplin and Usher sang “Gone Too Soon”.
Ending the performance part of the service, family, friends and performers took the stage to sing “We Are The World” and “Heal the World”–both were part of the London concerts Michael was about to embark on before he died.
To close, the Jackson family took the stage. Marlon Jackson gave a rambling weepy eulogy. And Michael’s daughter, Paris, heartwrenchingly, said a few words.
UPDATE: Just added: Stevie Wonder, “Never Dreamed You’d Leave in Summer” John Mayer, “Human Nature” and Shaheen Jafargholi, “Who’s Loving You”.
