R&B/Pop recording stars from Destiny’s Child and Broadway singer Michelle Williams to Omarion and Marques Houston were among millions of fans who watched Tuesday’s celebration of Michael Jackson. Moved by inspiring tributes and soulful renditions of the King of Pop’s hits including “Will You Be There,” stars chimed in via twitter Tuesday afternoon. “Soooooo we all have laughed and cried during MJ’s tribute!! Rest in Peace to the greatest who ever lived!!!!,” said Broadway star and “We Break The Dawn” singer Michelle Williams. Williams, like fellow Top 10 charting singer Omarion, was touched by the seemingly stellar celebration of the King of Pop’s life. “R.I.P M.J forever in my heart u are…every time I touch tha stage its bkuz of you long live tha KING…and u have hope 4 tha resurrection!,” says the “Touch” singer. According Los Angeles based authorities nearly 50,000 people came out in support of the late King of Pop Tuesday. While only those ticketed were permitted to enter the area surrounding the Staples Center, where Jackson ironically rehearsed for what was to be his ‘This Is It Tour’ weeks ago, fans could be seen on highways, bridges and nearby roads awaiting Jackson’s processional. Not originally revealed to news sources, Jackson’s body and full processional moved through Los Angeles between 9:30am – 10:00am with full LAPD escort. Once inside the ceremony fans, family and friends were treated to words and music from Queen Latifah, Smokey Robinson, Barry Gordy, Mariah Carey, Trey Lorenz, Usher and more. In addition to Williams and Omarion, Kelly Rowland, Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men and Marques Houston weighed in with the following tweets on Twitter: * “WE ARE NOTHING COMPARED TO THAT MAN. I AM DEEPLY HUMBLED BY HIS LIFE, MORE BY HIS DEATH. I LOVE YOU MICHAEL JACKSON,” wrote Marques Houston. * “Okay entertainers, songwriters and singers, he’s put to rest! Let’s ALL step our game up!!,” wrote Boyz II Men member Shawn Stockman. * “We love you and will miss you SO MUCH!!!!!,” wrote Kelly Rowland. At press time Jackson’s burial location remained unknown.
