Rest In Peace MJ

Today, on the 7th July 2009, MJ's memorial service has been held at the Staple Center, Los Angeles. It was broadcast live around the globe...but being aired at 1 am in the morning, I just have to take a pass.

This morning, googling up the events in YouTube was the first thing I did as soon as I stepped into the office. That was when I started to cry after watching the speech made by his daughter, Paris Katherine Jackson. It was such a heart felt speech.....a speech that sent tears rushing down my cheek like crazy. Her father must have been so proud of her today.

Another scene which also caused tears running on my cheek is to watch Jermaine Jackson sang MJ's favourite song, Smile. He was singing while fighting back his tears....trying very hard to finish the song.....huhuhu.

This song Smile was written by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons and music by Charlie Chaplin. The lyrics are so beautiful......it makes you even sadder reading the lyrics after he (MJ) died....it was very beautifully written & suits him very well.


Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though its breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, youll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
Youll see the sun come shining through for you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
Thats the time you must keep on trying
Smile, whats the use of crying?
Youll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

Thats the time you must keep on trying
Smile, whats the use of crying?
Youll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile
