Watch Michael Jackson memorial service online (live video stream)
All of the major networks and cable channels will be offering live coverage of the Michael Jackson memorial service but for those without access to television, there are still options. A lot of radio stations will broadcast the event live and it will also be streamed online on numerous websites. But expect poor images and continuous buffering as there is a strong chance that many servers will become overloaded.
About 50 movie theaters across the country will also broadcast the event live. Nearly 17,000 people will be able to watch the service in cinemas equipped with digital projection systems and satellite dishes.
According to several reports, Jackson’s ex-wife Debbie Rowe will attend the King of Pop’s memorial service. At around 8 a.m. (11 a.m. ET), there will be a private gathering of Jackson family members at the cemetery. The Highway Patrol will escort them from Encino, California to the cemetery and then to the Staples Center.
Fans have begun to gather into downtown L.A. for a star-studded memorial to the pop superstar whose sudden death nearly two weeks ago shocked the whole world.
Stevie Wonder, Mariah Carey and Lionel Richie are among the celebrity guests scheduled to attend. Usher and Brooke Shields will also appear at the service in L.A., while Motown founder Berry Gordy, John Mayer, Kobe Bryant, Martin Luther King III and Jennifer Hudson also appear on the list for the event at the Staples Center.
Jackson will be buried at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills. It is home to some of Tinseltown’s brightest stars, who now rest in green pastures and giant marble mausoleums.
