REMEMBERING THE KING OF POP
Remember today’s date, it will no doubt be marked as one of the most historical moments in Entertainment- The Michael Jackson memorial. Wall to wall coverage all day, performers at the memorial to include Mariah Carey, Jennifer Hudson, John Mayer, Lionel Richie, Smokey Robinson, Usher and Stevie Wonder.
MJ will create even more pandemonium in death than he did in life -- his body will take center stage at the Staples Center in downtown L.A. today- it was announced earlier this morning that the family will hold a private memorial early in the morning at Forest Lawn -- where the body is now. After the ceremony finishes, the coffin will then be transported to Staples for what promises to be one of the biggest spectacles in L.A. history.
We've just learned law enforcement has launched a plan to escort Michael Jackson's body from Forest Lawn to the Staples Center.The plan calls for a "heavy motorcade" with the LAPD's SWAT team as part of the escort.There is also a contingency plan to helicopter the body to Staples if there's an issue of safety.We're also told approximately 100 people will attend the private memorial at Forest Lawn -- mostly family members. After the service the plan is to follow the body to Staples.
