CNN aired this exclusive clip of Michael Jackson rehearsingÂ last week onÂ June 23rd for his “This is it” London Concerts. He appears to be in fine form as he dances to one of my favorite songs “They Don’t Really Care About Us”…He does appear to be in “rehearsal mode” but nonetheless going hard as always. He was pronounced dead 48 hours later.
Meanwhile, Michael’s funeral arrangements have been confirmedÂ for Tuesday, July 7th at 10am.Â 11,000 tickets will be distributed free of charge to the general public — a press conference will be held tomorrow morning to address the situation further. A motorcade will go from Forest Lawn Mortuary in L.A. to the Staples Center complex in downtown Los Angeles where the public memorial will be held. A $25,000, solid bronze, 14-karat gold plated, custom casket (as seen above) has been ordered for Jackson. It is called a Promethean and will feature a flame blue velvet interior and a hand-polished, mirror finish. This is the same casket used to bury James Brown and is extremely rare.
As far as Michael Jackson’s trust, His mother, Katherine Jackson will get 40% of the assets. Michael’s 3 kids will get another 40%. And the remaining 20% goes to several children’s charities.Â Â Source
