Grammy winner Esperanza Spalding has the honours of singing A Wonderful World during the In Memorium tribute to those the industry lost in the past year. It was done very beautifully. The tribute ends off with a short interview of dame Elizabeth Taylor, who was one of the many stars we lost last year.
Michael Jackson was mourned by his family and celebrity friends including Elizabeth Taylor and Macaulay Culkin at a private funeral service held outside the elaborate mausoleum in California where the King of Pop will be entombed. It came more than two months after Jackson died of a lethal cocktail of prescription drugs at the age of 50.
