Celebrating Michael Jackson at Detroit's Motown Museum

Friday, June 25, 2010

When the "King of Pop" passed away at the age of 50, crowds thronged the streets to mourn the superstar and his legendary music. Today marks the one year anniversary of his death. To celebrate, Detroit's Motown Museum opens a Michael Jackson exhibit. On display: one of his iconic white sparkling gloves, fedora hats and a replica of a jacket he wore in "Thriller."

The museum's chief executive officer, Audley Smith, expects a major turnout for the opening. He says that when Jackson passed away, a crowd of 500 people gathered at the museum for a candlelight memorial.
