Michael Jackson's Mother to Attend Press Conference to Announce International Fan Convention in

Katherine Jackson, the mother of the late entertainer Michael Jackson will be in attendance at a press conference to announce the first annual International King of Pop Fanvention on March 9, 2010 at 10 a.m.(CST). The press conference will be held at the Radisson Hotel at Star Plaza, in the Star Plaza Theatre, 800 E. 81st Avenue in Merrillville, IN. The hotel is just 10 minutes from the childhood home of Jackson.

The Fanvention will take place during the weekend of August 26 – 29, 2010. The event, organized by Fluid Productions, LLC in partnership with the Radisson Hotel at Star Plaza in Merrillville is expected to attract over ten thousand enthusiastic Michael Jackson fans from around the world to celebrate Jacksons’ legacies of humanity, love for the environment and music.

Donald Thompson, event director, said “This is the only event of its kind in the world because it is the only event that will be held so close to his boyhood home. We felt that Indiana was the perfect place to host an event that will highlight Michael’s life and music. It just makes sense. It all began here.”

The Fanvention, which is a combination of the words “fan” and “convention”, will include autograph and photo sessions with people that worked with and knew Michael. Members of the Jackson family will be in attendance and will participate in question and answer sessions about Michael. A dance party and gala are also scheduled. Tours will also run to the Jackson family home throughout the weekend. Vendors will be on hand to sell memorabilia and collector’s items. A special salute to Jackson will be performed by young entertainers from the northwest Indiana area on Sunday.

So this was a non-story and didn't happen today after all?   Like so many other things, but for a cost of $ 795 per person, I think we all know there is only ONE person we would pay that kind of money to see!   :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:

According to this article, Katherine did not attend the press conference, and she did not appear on the live feed  ;)  Instead, "Michael's cousins Trent and Kayla Jackson, along with his mother Katherine's assistant, Mary Christmas, appeared via satellite from Encino, Calif."

http://nwitimes.com/entertainment/music ... 27000.html

"...Singer Genevieve Jackson, daughter of Michael's younger brother, Randy Jackson, appeared at Monday's announcement.

"I'm happy to be here," Genevieve said. "And I'm looking forward to being here in August because this is where it all began," she said, adding her "Uncle Mike" used to tell her what it was like growing up in Indiana. Genevieve will perform at the August event in addition to The Triple Dose Band, led by Michael's cousin Keith Jackson, and various members of the latest generation of Jacksons.

Among other entertainers scheduled to perform is Michael's protege, Omer Bhatti.

"Today we're announcing a very exciting tribute to one of the greatest entertainers of all time," said Charlie Blum, president, CEO and talent buyer for Star Plaza Theatre and Star Productions.

"We're absolutely thrilled to be the host venue for this illustrious event."

Michael's cousins Trent and Kayla Jackson, along with his mother Katherine's assistant, Mary Christmas, appeared via satellite from Encino, Calif. They sent best wishes from Katherine, who originally was scheduled to appear by live feed..."

You rocked my world, you know you did
And everything I own I give
The rarest love who\'d think I\'d find
Someone like you to call mine




"Let us dream of tomorrow where we can truly love from the soul, and know love as the ultimate truth at the heart of all creation."
------Michael Jackson

well not surprising not to show - given that the cm trial or the pre trial is due start 05/04/10 - otherwise we would say they are heartless.
