Mariah Carey was the first artist to perform at Michael’s Memorial in July. After singing ‘I’ll be There’ she wrote on Twitter that she was unhappy about her performance.
Carey says she now regrets the things she said, and is happy that she was asked to perform. Her emotions took over and she was unhappy that what she said may have been misunderstood.
“It was difficult just to get through the song because I feel as if I have been listening to Michael Jackson’s music my whole life. When I was a little kid I used to sing all his songs. The whole world suffered a huge loss. The whole world is going to feel this forever. I feel myself blessed to have known him, to have performed with him several times and to have sung at his memorial.”
