Marking the beginning of a four-day tribute to Michael, entitled “Goin’ Back to Indiana: Can You Feel It,” Michael’s children and other family members paid tribute to Michael on August 29th, on what would have been his 54th birthday. They met fans and signed autographs at the old Jackson home at 2300 Jackson Street. Paris also posted a touching tribute to her father on Twitter as she shared a picture of herself posing with an old photo of Michael.
“Thru my joy & my sorrow, in the promise of another 2morro, i’ll never let u apart for ur always in my heart… happy birthday i love u daddy,” she tweeted.
There is also to be a special dinner on Friday, hosted by the Mayor of Gary, as well as a tribute concert at the local theatre on Saturday.
