The 'Thriller' hitmaker's older sister, 58, paid tribute to him on the fifth anniversary of his death today (25.06.14), and urged the late music legend's fans ''not to mourn'' him.
In a statement to E! News, she said: ''If Michael were here today he would tell us to all celebrate his life and not to mourn his death.''
She also remembered the star, who is survived by his son Prince, 17, daughter Paris, 16, and 12-year-old son Blanket, as ''the most incredible father, brother, son and the most talented performed this world has ever known.''
She added: ''Michael was all about love and peace and in honour 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 today I know you would say, 'I love you more!' ''
But Jermaine Jackson, 59, admitted it was still a ''difficult day'' for him on Twitter.
He tweeted: ''However you are remembering Michael today, much love to you all on this difficult day #brother #father #uncle #son #artist #oneofakind
''Reading your messages. Your kindness and love are our comfort, too. Thank you.''
A number of other celebrities also shared tributes to the late singer, who died of acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication at his Los Angeles home at the age of 50 in 2009, including Lady GaGa.
The 'Applause' hitmaker wrote on Twitter: ''R I P Micheal. We love you. Today the world and media will grieve your absence, and think deeply of how we could have treated you better.''
