Michael Jackson's 11-year-old daughter Paris wants to record a tribute song for her beloved father
Michael Jackson's daughter wants to record a song for her beloved dad.
Paris Jackson - who made an emotional tribute to the pop legend at his memorial service on Tuesday (07.07.09) - is keen to sing on a track after being inspired by the artists who performed at the star-studded service at Los Angeles' Staples Center.
A source said: "Paris was overwhelmed. She never comprehended the scope of his fame."
The 11-year-old girl - who went on stage with her family, including brothers Prince Michael and Prince Michael II, where she described Michael as the best father in the world - has discussed her plans with her musical aunts, uncles and grandparents but they are keen to protect her privacy.
The source added: "The Jacksons are very reluctant. But she's convinced it's a good idea."
When Michael was alive, he was keen to keep the children out of the spotlight and on the rare occasions they did venture out, he made them wear face masks.
Meanwhile, Michael - who died last month after suffering a suspected cardiac arrest - is set to come back to life in a new video game.
The 'Thriller' singer will be the main character in the computer adventure, which he had already recorded voiceover lines for, shortly before his death.
A worker on the game - which his firm MJJ Productions have been working on for months - said: "I am sure it will still be released. Michael loved games."
It will not be the first time the 50-year-old star has appeared in a video game.
In 1990 he co-developed 'Michael Jackson's Moonwalker', which was playable in arcades and on home consoles and based on his 'Moonwalker' film.
The story, which is taken from the movie, follows Michael as he uses various music and dance related abilities to defeat enemies while on a quest to save kidnapped children from the hands of the evil 'Mr. Big'.
Some of his biggest hits, including 'Beat It' and 'Smooth Criminal', were incorporated into the game.
