GARY, Ind. – Michael Jackson’s hometown in Indiana is planning another tribute to the “King of Pop” just two months after marking the one-year anniversary of his death.
A news release issued by the city says a tribute will be held outside Jackson’s boyhood home in Gary on Saturday, a day before what would have been his 52nd birthday.
Gary Mayor Rudy Clay says the city is honouring Jackson’s memory as a great and giving person and as the world’s greatest entertainer. The Jackson Family moved out of the city after the Jackson 5 struck it big in 1969.
Organizers say the event Saturday will include local entertainers and a Michael Jackson impersonator.
Jackson died last year in Los Angeles of an overdose of sedatives.
