Michael Jackson’s memorial service began with a rendition of We Are Going to See the King as his golden casket rolled down the aisle and was positioned in its place of honor in the front of the stadium. Michael’s brothers wore silver sequined gloves and served as pall bearers.
Michael Jackson picked out his own casket after attending James Brown’s funeral. His brass casket, with gold overlay and velvet lining, set Michael back 25K. Aside from the casket, the service itself was modestly done for a star of his calibur.
