Janet pays tribute to her Father….

I hate I missed this!!!!! I figured that it was going to be difficult for Janet to perform so soon after her father’s death.

Janet Jackson closed the Essence Festival in New Orleans on Sunday Night by paying tribute to her father Joe Jackson that passed away 2 weeks ago.  Janet told the crowd…..You know it’s always difficult when you lose a loved one and to be quite honest it was really hard for me. I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t know how to move forward. If I should cancel this festival, cancel the entire tour.   “Then I talked to my brother and we started to speak about my father’s strength. He was very strong. Without his drive, his strength, we wouldn’t have the success. We’re a black family that came from Gary, Indiana, and we broke all kinds of records around the globe. That’s truth.” My father was a great man and my brother, he asked me, he said, ‘If he were here right now, listening to this conversation, what do you think he would say to you?’ And I think my father would’ve said, ‘Janet, please. Finish what you’ve started.'”
