Music, memories and tears took center stage at Michael Jackson’s memorial service at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. “He was a lover of life, he cared so deeply for his family, for his friends, and his fans,” an emotional Brooke Shields said of her childhood pal. Mariah Carey, Jennifer Hudson, John Mayer and Usher gave performances in tribute to the legendary singer, and Michael’s brother Jermaine sang a heartrending rendition of Michael’s favorite song, Charlie Chaplin’s “Smile.” Speakers such as Al Sharpton and Queen Latifah testified to Michael’s cultural impact in advancing charitable causes and crossing racial barriers. Stevie Wonder, who moved the crowd with his song “I Never Dreamed You’d Leave in Summer,” summed it up best when he said, “This is a moment that I wish that I didn't live to see come. But as much as I can say that and mean it, I do know that God is good and I do know that as much as we may feel — and we do — that we need Michael here with us, God must have needed him far more."
