micheal's children at the concert
     Three generations of micheal jackson's family with a few notable absentees joined an eclectic roster of entertainers Saturday to pay tribute to the king of pop, a celebration of the late star's life overshadowed by the Los Angeles manslaughter trial of his doctor.
   It's not about the controversy," said R&B star Ne-Yo, who kicked off the show with a rendition of "Billie Jean," complete with some passable moonwalking. "It's not about the trial. It's not about his death. It's about celebrating his life. It's about celebrating his music.

     "The lineup for the "Michael Forever" show included Christina Aguilera, Smokey Robinson, Gladys Knight, Leona Lewis, jennifer hudson, Cee Lo Green and, via video, Beyonce.While 13 Jackson family members attended including vocal group 3T, composed of Tito's three sons Michael's brothers Jermaine and Randy and sister Janet have stayed away, saying it is wrong to hold the show at the same time as the manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray.
      Some of the proceeds will go to the AIDS Project Los Angeles and Prince's Trust charities, and a portion will be placed in a trust fund for Jackson's children, though organizers did not give an exact breakdown.
