Nearly all major cable networks and broadcast channels are broadcasting Michael Jackson's memorial service today at the Staples Center. I am watching it right now, actually surprised by the emotions I am feeling. It's amazing to listen to so many music greats sing and speak in his honor. And all the pallbearers are wearing a single white glove.
Berry Gordy gave a very nice tribute, saying being called the King of Pop isn't enough: "I think he is simply the greatest entertainer that ever lived."
