Today Michael Jackson would be moon walking at the age of 56! He is the biggest star that the universe has ever met and this day would not be complete without a celebration. Michael's mother Katherine Jackson spearheaded a beautiful tribute to honor her son, like any mother would.

The Michael Jackson Tribute Festival of the Arts kicked off on Thursday, in Jackson's hometown of Gary, Indiana. This event was to put together to encourage new artist and Katherine wanted something in place to honor the legacy of MJ.
