This was the moment of the Michael memorial that broke our hearts the most.

"Ever since I was born, Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine," 11-year-old Paris said, in tears. "And I just wanted to say I love him so much."

What was YOUR favorite moment of the Michael Jackson memorial?

At this moment is when I broke down. So heartbreaking to hear her speak of her father. God bless Michael and his children.

An 11 yr old should not have been exploited but it was great pr stunt. Poor kids.

I could be wrong, but I don’t think they exploited her.From the looks of her body language, she appeared to have wanted to say something. —- I was raised by my grandmother and she died when I was young. I wanted to speak at the funeral. What people also didn’t know, was that my grandmother actually asked me(before she died, of course) to help do her eulogy! It was a promise that she and I made during a private conversation, and boy, I really wanted to do it as a last request of my grandmother. I did it—although I choked most of the way through. I heard constant “it’s ok baby” “its alright” from adults in the crowd. Lastly, I put a “happy birthday” card in her coffin, as her birthday was recently and I never got the chance to give it to her. So she was buried with it. I don’t know if the dead can see us from above, but it gives certain comfort to the living to do something or say something for them…especially if they were close to us, as Paris obviously was to her father.

I mean even though MJ may have done a lot of weird and questionable things..this shows that he must have been a good father to his children and I dont beleive she was exploited at all!!!!
