Janet Jackson will honor Michael at the MOBO Awards
Janet Jackson, 43, will pay honor her late brother Michael Jackson at the Music of Black Origins Award Show in Scotland on September 30.
A MOBO spokesperson said: "Janet is a music icon in her own right and a previous MOBO presenter. We loved her past involvement with the show and MOBO will continue to support her music and champion her career.
"Michael Jackson was a key catalyst and influence on the culture, lifestyle and music that MOBO supports and represents. His sound, style and dance moves have inspired subsequent generations of pop, soul, R&B and hip-hop artists. Artists such as Usher, Ne-Yo and Justin Timberlake often cite Michael Jackson as their inspiration and it is key that we commemorate his life, achievements and legacy."
