I am sure Michael would love it. I fully support Jermaine's endeavours to spread Michael's important message of making a better world for us all... (I am) overwhelmed by the worldwide love and support that my beloved son Michael has received over the past month."
The performers for the concert are expected to be named by the end of this month. Jackson, 50, had died on June 25 after suffering a cardiac arrest.
