Fans Remember Michael Jackson on 10th Anniversary of His Death

Tributes to Michael Jackson have continued to abound as his legion of loyal fans mark the 10th anniversary of the iconic pop star’s death.

“Ten years ago, today, the world lost a gifted artist and extraordinary humanitarian,” the Jackson estate said in a statement. “A decade later, Michael Jackson is still with us, his influence embedded in dance, fashion, art and music of the moment. He is more important than ever.”

Jackson’s personal physician Conrad Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the singer’s sudden death at age 50 on June 25, 2009. Murray, who administered the drug propofol to treat Jackson’s insomnia, was not qualified to do so.

Meanwhile, fans across the country are engaging in various remembrances of Jackson.

They include those who will gather at the Hollywood Walk of Fame, where the singer’s star outside the TCL Chinese Theatre continues to draw a constant gathering of selfie-snapping tourists, as nearby souvenir shops, street performers and even tattoo parlors report brisk sales and trade in all things Jackson.
