Michael Jackson's family and fans have said farewell to the pop superstar at an emotional memorial service.
Jackson's daughter Paris, 11, fought back tears to describe him as "the best father you could ever imagine".
The singer's coffin was placed in front of the stage during the event at the Staples Center in Los Angeles after an earlier private funeral.
Lionel Richie, Stevie Wonder and Mariah Carey paid tribute before the family joined a sombre finale on stage.
Jackson's siblings, children and parents took part in a chorus of We Are The World and Heal the World.
His family, with the brothers each wearing a single jewelled glove in Jackson's honour, then took to the podium.

Comforted by aunts and uncles, Paris stepped up the microphone. "I just wanted to say, ever since I was born, Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine," she said.
"And I just wanted to say I love him so much."
Marlon Jackson spoke of the troubles his brother faced. "We will never, never, understand what he endured," he said.
"Not being able to walk across the street without a crowd gathered around, being judged, being ridiculed. How much pain can one take?
"Maybe now, Michael, they will leave you alone."
Jackson's brother Jermaine earlier took to the stage to perform the song Smile. It was said to be the King of Pop's favourite song, featuring the lyric: "Smile though your hearts are aching."
At the start of the service, Jackson's brothers carried the golden flower-draped coffin into the arena to the strains of a choir singing "Hallelujah, hallelujah, we're going to see the King" from the song Soon And Very Soon.
Mariah Carey was among the artists paying tribute, performing I'll Be There and ending with the words: "We miss you."
Stevie Wonder said: "This is a moment I wished I didn't live to see come. Michael I love you."
Civil rights leader the Reverend Al Sharpton gave a fiery speech, telling Jackson's children: "There weren't nothing strange about your daddy.
"It was strange what your daddy had to deal with but he dealt with it."
Michael was a personal love of mine, a treasured part of my world, part of the fabric of my life in a way that I can't seem to find words to express
