We joined in sending birthday wishes to the late Michael Jackson yesterday, but we missed the biggest party!
Every year on his birthday, MJ's hometown of Gary, Indiana holds a vigil for the King of Pop.
This year, MJ's family, including kids Prince, Blanket, and Paris Jackson, were in attendance to honor their late father.
Prince was so moved by the size of the gathering, he said:
"It's amazing how much he was respected and loved."
It was incredibly meaningful, as well, for Paris to see where her dad grew up. She said:
"I think that coming here and seeing our dad's old house, and all the fans coming out, I think it's really sweet that they did that."
Paris also posted this pic (above) of the crowd to her Twitter feed, tweeting:
"you guys are amazing!!!"
We're glad fans got a chance to give something back to the children of the man whose music legacy will live forever in our hearts!
