Joe Jackson Makes BET Award Appearance

Joe Jackson made a special appearance at the 2009 BET Awards Sunday. Jackson, mourning the surprising death of his son and King of Pop Michael Jackson, spoke with and stopped for photographs on the red carpet. As reported on Singersroom earlier today, Jackson issued a statement on behalf of his family thanking fans for the overwhelming support issued since Jackson’s death Thursday. In the statement, Jackson wrote: “In one of the darkest moments of our lives we find it hard to find the words appropriate to this sudden tragedy we all had to encounter. Our beloved son, brother and father of three children has gone so unexpectedly, in such a tragic way and much too soon. It leaves us, his family, speechless and devastated to a point, where communication with the outside world seems almost impossible at times,” a statement released late Saturday. “We miss Michael endlessly, our pain cannot be described in words. But Michael would not want us to give up now. So we want to thank all of his faithful supporters and loyal fans worldwide, you – who Michael loved so much. Please do not despair, because Michael will continue to live on in each and every one of you. Continue to spread his message, because that is what he would want you to do. Carry on, so his legacy will live forever.”
