Mariah Carey and her lifelong friend and backing singer Trey Lorenz began the memorial service by singing to the very full crowd with their version of "I'll be there." Many have critized Trey's singing on television, and on Facebook the rough comments continue to roll with everything about Trey Lorenz being a "bad gay singer" to his voice isn't what it used to be in 1992. CNN's live coverage even briefly broke up during the song and then returned, for an unknown reason. Mariah Carey finished their song with a quick, "Thank you Jesus-we'll miss you (Michael)."
Ms. Carey declared, “Thank you Jesus–we'll miss you.” The service was followed by many other celebrities giving their condolences and wishing off the pop star. This list included Queen Latifah read a poem by Maya Angelou "We Had Him," singer and motown colleague Lionel Richie perfomed “Jesus is Love.” At 12:36 Pastor Lucius Smith stated that Jackson was "revered as an idol, hero and king" worldwide. Other performers and famous guests included Motown, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Barry Gordon, and Lionel Richie. Many of the press are even noting this event to be as big as the Diana and Charles royal wedding or the death of Elvis. There was actually an applause when the casket was brought out, which felt a bit circus like considering the occassion. His open casket gave everyone the opportunity to say their good byes a little more personally with the king of pop.
All of this seems to have over shadowed the death of Steve McNair (former all-star quarterback for Tennessee Titans) and his mistress Sahel Kazemi. While widowed wife still isn't talking about the deaths publically. Photos for Steve McNair's wife have become increasing popular online.
