Michael Jackson's family want to hold an annual tribute concert to the late star following this weekend's Michael Forever show in Wales
Michael Jackson's family want to hold an annual tribute concert to the late star.
A tribute to the late 'Beat It' star, Michael Forever, will be held at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday (08.10.11) - with starts including Christina Aguliera, Cee Lo Green and Smokey Robinson among others performing - and his brother Tito wants to make it an annual event.
He told Welsh newspaper The Western Mail: "Hopefully we can do this every year to remember his legacy, that's something that we enjoy doing."
Tito and other members of Michael's family band, The Jackson 5, are set to perform during the course of the evening, and he the late star's children, Prince, 14, Paris, 13, and Blanket, nine may even make an appearance onstage, although they will not perform or sing.
Tito added: "The children are so glad to be [in England], they're going to have a great time. They might be on the stage.
"Come the finale they might be on the stage, you never know. It's a spontaneous reaction, whatever happens, happens."
Tito also talked about how he feels Michael would want his legacy to be remembered.
He added: "People ask, 'What do you think Michael represented when he was here on earth?' and my first answer is not music but his heart, what he did for people, how he tried to change the world and make the world a better place."
