The second anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death was given special recognition last Friday by a performance from his brother, Jermaine Jackson. According to reports from the Associated Press, he was “dressed in a Michael Jackson-inspired outfit, complete with a red military-style jacket, V-neck white shirt, fitted black slacks, and a black cummerbund with an emblazoned number ‘5.’”

Jermaine sang a medley of hits that highlighted Michael’s career. Some of these songs included:  “Scream,” ”Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’,” and “Can You Feel It.” The Associated Press also reports that just prior to performing, Jermaine said to the crowd, “This is a special moment in the show because it’s a tribute to my brother.” The performance took place at the 12th Indian International Film Awards festivities in Toronto.
