LaToya to release tribute record

LaToya Jackson
Latoya's album release date has been pushed back indefinitely

LaToya Jackson has announced she will re-release a song she originally recorded to pay homage to her family, as a tribute to her brother Michael.

Jeffre Phillips, from the record company Ja-Tail, said LaToya has decided to release the single Home instead of a song off her new album.

All proceeds from the single will be donated to Aids Project LA, a charity that was supported by Michael Jackson.

The song will be available on iTunes from 28 July.

LaToya's album release date has been pushed back indefinitely.

Michael Jackson, known for hits such as Thriller, Bad and Billie Jean, died last month in Los Angeles.

On Tuesday, a spokesman for the LA coroner said results of his autopsy would not be released "this week or next" while final work on the case was carried out.

Meanwhile, a hearing which will determine who will look after the pop star's three children has been postponed for the second time.

It has now been scheduled to take place on 3 August.

His mother Katherine Jackson will remain the temporary guardian of them until then.

Michael Jackson's ex-wife and mother of his two oldest children, Debbie Rowe, has not filed for custody.

She has agreed to previous delays in the guardianship case.

Katherine Jackson's lawyer said last week that his client and Ms Rowe were trying to reach an amicable settlement to the case.
