Details for Michael Jackson’s public memorial have been finalized.
The farewell service for Jackson will take place on Tuesday, July 7 at 10 a.m. at the Staples Center. The program will be simulcast at Los Angeles’ nearby Nokia Theatre.
Jackson, 50, passed away Thursday (June 25) after suffering an apparent cardiac arrest at his home in Los Angeles. It has been widely reported that an overdose of prescription is to blame for the superstar’s unexpected death.
In an interview broadcast Thursday on NBC’s Today show, the King of Pop’s older brother, Jermaine Jackson, said he wishes he had died instead of his superstar sibling.
“He went too soon. I don’t know how people are going to take this, but I wish it was me,” Jermaine said.
“I wanted to be there for him. I was there and he was sort of like molded. Things he couldn’t say, I would say them. During the trials, during everything …”
Jermaine said that when he rushed to UCLA Medical Center last Thursday, where Jacko was pronounced dead, “I wanted to see Michael, and I wanted to see my brother, and see him there lifeless and breathless was very emotional for me, but I held myself together, because I know he’s very much alive.”
“His spirit is, and that was just a shell, but I kissed him on his forehead and I hugged him, and I touched him and I said, ‘Michael, I’ll never leave you. You’ll never leave me.’”
Michael is on the right track for the next stage in our journey. The journey of our soul started with:-
1. Creation of Soul
2. Mother’s Womb (until you born)
3. Life in this World (until you meet death)
4. Life after death (in the grave) until judgement day
5. Judgement Day – Yaumul Mahsyar (when your good deeds and bad deeds will be compared)
6. Paradise or Hell
Wallahua’lam – ALlah knows better.
My muslim brothers and sisters, correct me if I’m wrong on these.
