Three generations of Michael Jackson's family _ with a few notable absentees _ joined an eclectic roster of entertainers Saturday to pay tribute to the King of Pop, a celebration of the late star's life overshadowed by the Los Angeles manslaughter trial of his doctor.

"This is a chance to say, 'Thank you Michael' and celebrate the music."
