Jackson Worked On New Music With Children

MICHAEL JACKSON was working on new music with his three children shortly before his death - dubbing the new group THE JACKSON 4.
The King Of Pop passed away on Thursday (25Jun09) following a cardiac arrest - just weeks before he was set for a string of comeback shows in London.
Jackson planned to debut River Ripple, a track he penned with the help of his three kids - Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and Prince Michael II 'Blanket', seven, according to British newspaper The Sun.
A source tells the publication, "Michael had always wanted his children to be passionate about music and dance. Michael's oldest son Prince sings beautifully and all three children love to dance.
"It had long been Michael's wish to write a song with his children - he joked about 'The Jackson Four'. He said River Ripple is all about unconditional love, the sort that binds families and gives them courage.
"I don't think he intended to bring the children on stage with him, but Michael wanted to announce to the crowds that his kids had helped him to write a song. If he had been alive and well enough to pull it off, it would have been incredibly moving."
A set of previously unseen pictures of the star enjoying family life with his children has emerged following his death.
The snaps show Jackson and his two elder children celebrating Blanket's first birthday party, as well as joking around during a Halloween party.
