*Whitney Houston, Smokey Robinson and Dionne Warwick are among the celebrities sharing their memories of the late Michael Jackson for a new TV tribute created by the King of Pop’s good friend, David Gest.
The four-hour special, titled “The Real Michael Jackson,” also includes an interview with Jackson’s eldest sister Rebbie, who discusses the singer’s alleged pill addiction, and their mom Katherine.
“I have spent the past three months travelling the world interviewing people who were most important in (Jackson’s) life. I believe this popumentary will entertain and educate in equal measures about who the real Michael Jackson was,” Gest told WENN. “I hope this will serve as a lasting testament to the compassion and love that he had for all mankind.”
“The Real Michael Jackson” is due for release next month, which will mark a year after the superstar died from a cardiac arrest. A broadcast date or outlet has not yet been confirmed.
