In a new documentary about the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, his three children and mother provide an intimate look into what life was like with the late superstar, who died in 2009.
Michael’s mother Katherine describes the film in an open letter to fans on the website fundanything.com as a "tribute documentary film project that Michael's children Paris, Prince, Blanket and I have been working on for years."
The family shares memories of the pop star in personal interviews, designed to create “a positive, loving and respectful tribute to Michael, who spent his entire life sharing his gifts with the great hope of making the world a better place," Katherine writes.
In a sneak peek of the film, Michael’s two eldest children speak of their father’s incredible influence.
"Nobody has beaten his music and I don't think anybody ever will because that's like immortal music right there," says Prince, 16.
Paris, who gets emotional in the clip, reveals, “He promised me he would teach me how to moonwalk ... never got around to it. I really hope that his legacy lives on forever, and I know it will. I will definitely never forget him, ever. He was amazing."
While the documentary, entitled “Remembering Michael,” is almost finished, the Jackson matriarch wrote the letter to request additional financial support in helping to reach the $3.2 million needed to complete the film.
The Jackson family is not struggling to come up with the remaining funds, after all Michael’s estate is worth hundreds of millions, but they feel it is a way for fans to become involved in the project.
For the Jacksons themselves, it has been a difficult year. Paris attempted to commit suicide in June and was placed in treatment, spending the remainder of the year in a Utah school for troubled teens.
But the 15-year-old is expected to return home this week and spend the holidays with her family in Hawaii.
