One of the most moving moments of the evening was when Paris Jackson and Prince Jackson accepted an award for their father. Prince said, “On behalf of my sister and myself, it is a privilege and honor to be here about something that my dad was so passion about and who he held so near and dear to his heart. The way my father led his life, he led by example. Even though he was the King of Pop, he never thought he was too big for any person, no matter what you did no matter where you came from.”
