The Lucky Few: Fans Who Attended Jackson's Memorial

Wednesday, July 08, 2009

Of Michael Jackson's millions of fans worldwide, only a few thousand were lucky enough to attend the memorial service in the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The Takeaway talks to Melvin Price, an electrician in North Hampton, England, who flew to Los Angeles and was rewarded with the miraculous appearance of two tickets to the service, and with Karen Thompson, a cosmetologist from Compton, California, who was also at the memorial service.
