Michael Jackson’s fans gathered across the U.S. over the weekend to celebrate what would have been his 52nd birthday.
Devoted King of Pop fans proved they have not forgotten about the entertainer who died on 25 June, 2009 – and hundreds gathered outside his childhood home in Gary, Indiana to celebrate his life and music. The singer was honoured with a special ‘This Is It’ birthday party, where Gary Mayor Rudy Clay addressed the crowd.
“The passing of our favorite son, Michael Jackson, is still fresh in our hearts. A year later, on the day before his birthday, we honour his memory as a great and giving person and as the world’s greatest entertainer,” the Daily Express quoted Clay as saying.
