Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, the only daughter of Michael Jackson, paid her last tribute to late father, delivering a tearful goodbye speech on-stage during the public memorial service for the singer held at L.A.'s Staples Center on Tuesday, July 7. Keeping her tribute short, the little girl tried to fight back tears and said, "Ever since I was born, Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine. I just want to say I love him so much."
Unable to avoid crying on stage, 11-year-old Paris turned to Janet Jackson, who was quick to embrace her. A moment later, Janet and some other family members led Paris off the stage. Paris' touching tribute was the first public statement made by any of Michael's children since the King of Pop passed away on June 25.
Michael's sons, Prince Michael Jackson Jr. and Prince Michael Jackson II, were also seen attending the star-studded memorial service for their late famous father. The boys took the stage, joining family members, numerous celebs, and a group of other people to sing "We Are the World/Heal the World."
In addition to relatives and fans, Michael's memorial service was also attended by his celebrity friends. Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, Queen Latifah, Mike Tyson, Larry King, and P. Diddy were among the attendees. Music stars like Usher, Mariah Carey, and Jennifer Hudson were some of the tapped performers during the memorial.
