I wondered how long before Michael would help those people close to his heart in Japan. I am curious though - will Jermaine and Randy be a part of this one? And, is the Estate backing it? It seems interesting that there is another one planned so soon - tickets go on sale this week.



Jackson Family announce ‘Michael Jackson Tribute Live’ concerts in Japan (Dec. 13 and 14)

Michael Jackson’s family are staging a benefit concert in Japan to help children affected by the earthquake earlier this year, as they know it is a cause the late star would have supported.

Katherine Jackson has announced the Tokyo event will help a cause that her son would have done everything he could to support. Speaking at a press conference at Claridge’s hotel in London yesterday (Oct. 9), she tearfully told media: “If Michael was alive, he would definitely have done something to help the victims of the earthquake in Japan. Michael loved children, he would have felt for those children who lost parents or homes.”

Michael’s brothers will perform at the show as The Jacksons, and 81-year-old Katherine – who is the guardian of Michael’s three children, Paris, Prince Michael and ‘Blanket’ – is very “glad to see them back on stage”. The brothers can’t wait to get to the country and do something to help the Japanese people affected by the natural disaster which hit the coast of the Far East country in March.

Jackie Jackson said: “This concert can help children. I’m glad I can put smile on their faces again.” Marlon added: “Music can bring us together. Children can’t live without guidance. We want to point out kids to right direction. I’m pleased music can help other people.” Tito – who visited Japan after the earthquake – spoke of his belief that music can unify communities all over the world. He said: “People can become one, as human race.”

Merchandising profits from ‘Michael Jackson Tribute Live’ – which will take place in Tokyo on December 13 and 14 – will be donated to ASHINAGA, a charity which helps children who lost their homes or families in the March earthquake.

Tickets will go on sale on October 12.

I'm proud to be a child of God and a member of MJ's Army of L.O.V.E.
