MJ remembered

2010-06-25 08:18

Michael Jackson fans in New York City and elsewhere are remembering

him on the anniversary of his death.

The King of Pop died a year ago today at age 50.

Harlem’s Apollo Theatre is where a young Jackson and his brothers

won amateur night and today it hosts a commemoration of his life.

The Reverend Al Sharpton is a long-time Jackson family associate

and plans a moment of silence around the time Jackson died.

City officials in Gary, Indiana, say there will be a tribute at the

family’s home there.

Barricades already are set up at Jackson’s Los Angeles-area

cemetery for the huge throng of fans and some of his relatives expected to

arrive today.

Wreaths of flowers and dozens of bouquets, drawings and photos of

Jackson have been placed outside his mausoleum.
