La Toya Jackson will take to the stage for the first time in 20 years next month when she performs at a tribute show for her late brother Michael in Britain.
The Thriller hitmaker’s sister has not sung in public since the 1990s, but she’s preparing to jet to Wales to join stars including the Black Eyed Peas and Christina Aguilera at the Michael Forever concert in Cardiff on 8 October.

La Toya wants to celebrate her brother’s legacy, and she admits she’s looking forward to taking time out from attending Dr. Conrad Murray’s involuntary manslaughter trial, which began in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Murray is accused of administering the fatal dose of anesthetic Propofol, which cost Jackson his life in 2009.

She says, “There will never be another magical moment such as this to celebrate Michael with his fans.

“In speaking with my mother yesterday, I asked her where she thinks Michael would rather have us be – in this courtroom filled with negativity and lies, or on a stage celebrating his music, his legacy and his life.

“She said without a second of thought, ‘Celebrating his life with family and fans’. I am looking forward to putting on a great show and making my brother proud.”
