Michael Jackson is dead. The most controversial King of Pop sang it last song on the final rehearsal he had for his concert, “This Is It”. It was unbelievable. How can a King of Pop died so suddenly?! I don’t believe it until the funeral is actually proceed… Oh my God, it is real.

Just as the title of his never-going-to-be concert, this is it…it is now his time to rest. God has taken his restless soul to His side, so that he can finally have the 8-hours sleep. As Michael always wishes for…

Sleep tight, Dear MJ…

Los Angeles, USA.

Michael Joseph Jackson (29 August 1958 – 26 June 2009) aka MJ is resting at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Los Angeles, USA, besides his grandmother’s grave. Forest Lawn was built on 1906, and it is specially designed as a non-profit and non-scary moratorium. Such a perfect place for him to rest—other than the Neverland of course, since it is such a beautiful and peaceful place. Sadly, he was buried without his brain. It was because of the autopsy process by the police has not completed yet, even until now when this blog is published.

His funeral and the mega tribute for him were started on 10.00 AM (Los Angeles time), July 7th, 2009, at Staples Center, LA, USA.

The stars were attending the tribute for Michael Jackson—Usher, Brooke Shields, Mariah Carey, Smokey Robinson, Jennifer Hudson, Lionel Richie, Stevie Wonders, and many more. Nelson Mandela and Diana Ross only sent condolence letters that were read by Smokey Robinson. Elizabeth Taylor and Debie Rowe were also not present. Elizabeth Taylor said, “Michael wouldn’t want me to share grieve with the other millions people”. Debie Rowe, Michael’s second wife, was telling that she would not interrupt the ceremony with her presence, so that the main attention would still and only Michael himself.

After the letters from Nelson Mandela and Diana Ross being read, the stage was very silent. Then, finally, a song was sung by Andrea Crouch Choir along the arrival of MJ’s coffin in front of the stage. The crowd was hysteric and calling his name in mourn.

Pastor Lucious Smith was the one who gave the first speech.

“..is gone to soon”.

Mariah Carey was singing I’ll Be There, a duet with Trey Lorenz.

“We miss you”.

Queen Latifah then, gave her speech and dedicated a poem of Michael Angelo.

“We are missing Michael Jackson. But we know that we have him. We are the world”.

Lionel Richie then sang a song and followed by a speech of Gerry Gordy, the Motown founder.

“The more I think of Michael Jackson, I think that King of Pop is not enough for him. I think that he is just simply…he is just simply, the greatest entertainer that ever lived”.

After footages of MJ’s flashback, Stevie Wonder was singing with his piano. The sound was very heartbreaking, accompanied by a background of a bluish picture of MJ’s sitting relax on a chair with his handsome style. The image was so profounding.

“I love you, and I have said it many times”.

Kobe Bryant and Magic Johnson, famous basketball players that were close with him, were giving speech respectively.

“This is a celebration of his life, of his legacy”.

American Idol winner, Jennifer Hudson, sang Will You Be There. Pastor Al Sharpton with his powerful speech was telling that Michael Jackson was the one who had changed the world.

“He opened up the whole new world. Michael never stop! Michael never stop! Michael never stop!”.

John Mayer was playing Human Nature with only his guitar. He was not singing, but the sound from his guitar was very … *sob*
Then it comes to the most special person, the very special friend of MJ—Brooke Shields. Her feeling to MJ is very strong, I can not hold my tears no more when I heard her story of the other side of MJ. The childish, sensitive, caring, humourous and loving MJ. He just loved to laugh, she said.

“MJ’s laugh was the sweetest and the purest laugh I’ve ever heard”.

“His favourite song was not one of his masterpieces. It was a song written by Charlie Chaplin called Smile. There is a passage that saying smile although your heart is aching…”

Even though our hearts are aching now…Let’s smile for him.

A single spotlight shines his place on the stage.
He will always live.
