Queen Latifah read an original poem at the public memorial service for Michael Jackson today at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The moving words were those of famed poet Maya Angelou, who wrote the piece for this special occasion.
Another touching moment was the short speech by Paris Katherine Jackson – see video here.
Also performing was Jennifer Hudson, who sang Will You Be There – video and photos here.
