Michael Jackson’s burial service was held Thursday night at a highly guarded mausoleum in a Los Angeles suburb.
Family and guests arrived for Jackson’s burial in a private mausoleum at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California.
There were around 200 people in attendance for Michael’s funeral and burial service which included Elizabeth Taylor, Lisa Marie Presley, Macaulay Culkin, Quincy Jones and many others.
After the service, the family released a statement, saying, “Michael Jackson reached his final resting place tonight at 9:43 pm PST in The GreatMausoleum at Glendale Forest Lawn Memorial Park.”
“The pallbearers were Michael’s five brothers: Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Randy Jackson,” the statement continued. “At the beginning of the ceremony, Michael’s children placed a crown on their father’s coffin to signify the final resting place of the King of Pop.”
Gladys Knight sang the gospel hymn “His Eye Is on the Sparrow,” the statement said, and songwriter Clifton Davis sang “Never Can Say Goodbye,” the hit he wrote for the Jackson 5.
The investigation into Mr. Jackson’s death continues. The coroner has ruled that he died from a mix of the anesthetic propofol and another sedative, and the focus seems to be still on Dr. Conrad Murray.
