Michael Jackson’s Brothers: How We’re “Honoring His Memory”


Three years after his death, four of Michael Jackson's brothers, Marlon, Jermaine, Tito and Jackie, are keeping the late King of Pop's memory alive the best way they know how: Through song.

Embarking on the Unity concert tour June 20, Michael's siblings — who once comprised mega hit group The Jackson 5 with their late brother — hit the road for a series of appearances set to run through July 29.

"Michael is always in our thoughts and in our hearts, but this year his presence is especially strong since we are out on our Unity Tour 2012, the first tour we've done together since 1984," the Jacksons tell Us Weekly exclusively. "We know Michael would have loved to be a part of this, so we're up there on stage, playing the hits and honoring his memory."

To pay tribute to their late brother during their concert stops, the Jacksons have included a slideshow and medley that concludes with the hit "Gone Too Soon."

On Monday, Jackson's only daughter, Paris, honored her father through a touching Twitter message. "RIP Michael Jackson .. Dad you will forever be in my heart <3 i love you," Paris, 14, wrote.

Jackson — who died June 25, 2009 from an overdose of the anesthetic propofol when he was just 50 — was also the father of Prince, 15, and Blanket, 10.
