..Gotta accept the fact that the King of Pop has left us. Stayed up to watch the live telecast of the Memorial Service in Staples Center LA till the very last second, it was truly very emotional. One point I picked up is to be the best in whatever you do even if you are a street sweeper be the best street sweeper.

Gone Too Soon
Like A Comet..Blazing 'Cross The Evening Sky
Gone Too Soon
Like A Rainbow..Fading In The Twinkling Eye
Gone Too Soon
Shiny And Sparkly And Splendidly Bright
Here One Day.. Gone One Night
Like The Loss Of Sunlight..On A Cloudy Afternoon
Gone Too Soon
Like A Castle..Built Upon A Sandy Beach
Gone Too Soon
Like A Perfect Flower..That Is Just Beyond Your Reach
Gone Too Soon
Born To Amuse, To Inspire, To Delight
Here One Day..Gone One Night
Like A Sunset..Dying From The Rising Moon
Gone Too Soon..Gone Too Soon

Michael Jackson brother, Jermaine Jackson singing at STAPLES CENTER - Jackson memorial.The song is called "Smile" (by Charlie Chaplin) and is believed to be Michael Jackson's favorite song. [MalmoH]

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use in crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

[instrumental interlude]

That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use in crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile
