Contrary to popular belief it was Gladys Knight who discovered the Jackson 5 not Diana Ross.

Ju$t put the poor guy in the ground already!!!! No performance$, no camera$, no re$$$$ale value to the media. Ju$t, for once, have $ome grace, cla$$ and dignity and bury the man. Michael Jackson'$ death look$ like the best thing to happen to this family in thirty year$. it $ounds terrible, but are they doing anything to prove the $tatement wrong?

I feel that way too ...
Gladys Knight is very appropriate and she was the Motown star that really discovered the J5

I bet she does a great job with that soulful voice of hers...

wish I could be there, too, to say goodbye, but that really is going to be sad ...

What's the difference between Neil Armstrong and Michael Jackson? One did the moonwalk, the other's dead.

I attended her concert in the Oakland Temple a year ago. I enjoyed her performance very much. Thank you for singing at Michael Jackson's burial tomorrow night.

Glendale Forrest Lawn is a beautiful place, better than Hollywood Hills.
