Today marks the day when the official funeral for the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, will take place. A public memorial service will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles from 10am-12pm. I heard that approximately 700,000 to 1 million people will show up at the arena, in hopes of making it inside the building to attend the event. That sounds like either an event planner's dream come true or worst nightmare! I can't imagine planning an event for that many people. I think it would be a little overwhelming, but very rewarding and a lot of fun! With my Life Design Event Planning dream team at my side, we could definitely pull off an event like this. Staples Center holds 20,000 seats, so hopefully everything will go smoothly and the massive crowd cooperates. Celebrities such as Mariah Carey and Jennifer Hudson will be serenading the crowd with their performances and warm wishes in honor of MJ. Attendees must have a ticket to get inside, though the cost is free to the public.

If you can make it in time to Glendale's Westgate, the shopping center is broadcasting the service for the public. B.Y.O.Chair to listen live with many other fans.
