It’s hard to believe that “The King of Pop” Michael Jackson died 3 years ago this month…it seems like just yesterday. The pop icon left this earth too soon and he is still being mourned around the world.
In honor of Michael’s death, his four brother’s Marlon, Jermaine, Tito and Jackie began their 16-city “Unity” tour this month. They launched with a nearly sold out jam session in Detroit last night. Fans were excited to see them reunited and gave the show rave reviews. The audience was on their feet cheering during the entire two hours of pure entertainment.
While singing their hit songs, there was backdrop of the Jackson’s earlier days, including photo’s of their late brother Michael. The show is essentially a great way of honoring his incredible legacy.
Michael Jackson was pronounced dead June 25, 2009, 2:26 pm PT at UCLA Medical Center from cardiac propofol intoxication, after suffering a respiratory arrest. Dr. Conrad Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in November 2011 and was sentenced to four years in prison, for injecting the lethal dose.
The news of Michael’s death was sudden, shocking, and extremely sad. Gone too soon…but never forgotten.
