Dominic Lendo dances in front of Michael Jackson’s mausoleum at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale, California, on Tuesday, June 25, 2019, the 10th anniversary of Jackson’s death. Hundreds of fans of the King of Pop gathered at his grave for a daylong celebration of his life and music, with some traveling thousands of miles to join in the singalongs, selfies and moment of silence. A solemn moment came as more than 200 fans joined hands in a giant circle at 2:26 p.m., the time Jackson died at age 50. After a moment of silence, they pointed at the sky and yelled “Michael!” in unison.
Jackson’s estate also paid tribute to his life and artistry on the anniversary. “Ten years ago today, the world lost a gifted artist and extraordinary humanitarian,” the estate said in a statement. Jackson’s estate has doggedly worked to protect Jackson’s legacy, a task made more challenging this year when two men accused Jackson of molesting them as boys in the HBO documentary “Leaving Neverland.”
