La Toya Jackson - La Toya Jackson Urges Fans To Celebrate Michael's Life With Music

La Toya Jackson has urged fans to "celebrate" the life of her late brother Michael with kind deeds as they mark the fifth anniversary of the King of Pop's death.

A host of fan gatherings across the world were held on Wednesday (25Jun14) to mark the sad anniversary, and a candlelight vigil around his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles is planned for Wednesday night, but La Toya insists her younger brother would not have wanted devotees to dwell on his death, and she is encouraging them to enjoy his music - and do something for someone in need instead.

In a statement, she writes, "(Michael was) the most incredible father, brother, son and the most talented performed this world has ever known. If Michael were here today he would tell us to all celebrate his life and not to mourn his death."

She adds, "Michael was all about love and peace and, in honor of my brother, I ask you to please do something kind for someone today, and, blast and dance to all the beautiful music he left us all.

"I will spend the day celebrating his life by listening to his music, looking through old home photos, watching his videos and concerts. Michael I love you forever and if you were here today I know you would say, 'I love you more!'"

Michael Jackson's estate executors, John Branca and John MCClain, also noted the anniversary in a statement which reads: "Our thoughts and prayers are with Michael's loved ones today as we remember the kind, gentle and giving spirit who generously shared his amazing artistic gifts with the world along with a limitless empathy for those in need.

"Time has shown that with each passing year the world's appreciation deepens not just for Michael's talent but also for his lifelong passion to spread peace, unity, love and hope across every culture and society. Michael's friendship, kindness, humour and joyful warmth will always be missed. The world is a far better place for having known him."
