MJ Would Have Loved It

Although the lineup for a tribute to Michael Jackson has yet to be announced, the King of Pop’s mother says her son would have loved the idea.

The event – planned in part by Jermaine Jackson and scheduled for Vienna Sept. 26 in front of a 17th century castle – is expected to draw thousands of fans. In a letter dated late last week and released today, Katherine Jackson said the location was chosen because her son “loved castles.”

Mrs. Jackson also said the event will be telecast worldwide, giving millions the chance to celebrate her son’s life and achievements.

The letter was made public today by Austrian promoters World Awards Media GmbH.
