Soul songstress Mariah Carey addressed her detractors over her performance at Michael Jackson’s memorial held on Tuesday, July 7 at the Staples Center.
Critics have been bashing the “Hero” singer for her not so well rendition of Michael Jackson song, “I’ll be there.”
To defend herself and her performance Carey twitted, “trying to sing today was basically impossible for me. I could barely keep myself from crying. I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to pull it together and really do it right, but I was literally choked up when I saw him there in front of me.”
“One thing I know is, we will never really have to say goodbye to MJ. His legacy lives on through his music and the millions of people. He inspired with his timeless music. He will be forever in our hearts.”
Carey, as well as millions of fans who watched the King of Pop tribute on Tuesday was moved to tears over the passing of the “greatest entertainer of the world”.
