Late Pop legend, Michael Jackson’s life, music, and legacy were remembered by his family on the seven year anniversary of his death this weekend. He died at the age of 50 on June 25, 2009 of acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication.
On Friday, the pop star’s brothers, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon, and Jackie, joined forces to celebrate his life with a joint performance at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in San Diego.
His daughter, Paris Jackson shared a touching, black-and-white photo collage to her Instagram account on Saturday.
“7 years, rest in peace, my best friend in the entire universe. i love you more than anything. things may be a little sh*tty in the press right now but everyone knows it’s all bull and i swear on the family name i will protect you for as long as i live. there’s no one like you, and there never will be. thank you for touching millions of hearts, but especially my own.”
Michael’s sister La Toya Jackson shared a touching message and photo of him performing. “To The Most Loving Caring GoodHearted Talented Person Of All Time, We Love You #WeMissYouMJ & We Always Will! #RIPMJ,” she tweeted.
Taj Jackson, who is Michael’s nephew, remembered his uncle with a tweet as well. “7 years ago we lost one of our brightest lights and it has been a darker world ever since. #MJforever,” he wrote early Saturday morning.
