Fans of the late King of Pop will get the opportunity to bid farewell to the musical icon at a public viewing to be held on Friday. The event is scheduled to take place at Michael Jackson‘s Neverland Ranch, after the singer’s remains are transported on Thursday via a 30-car motorcade.
However, it’s still unclear where the superstar will be buried. Jackson’s hometown of Gary, Indiana is hoping that his family will choose to bring their son to rest in the city where he grew up. Mayor Rudy Clay has already reached out to the clan, but is still awaiting their decision.
Clay told CNN, that a memorial service is set to take place July 10 at the Steel Works ballpark in town and will be “a memorial that’s fit for the prince of peace and a memorial that’s fit for Gary, Indiana’s favorite son, the greatest entertainer that ever lived.”
