Christina Aguilera to star in Michael Jackson tribute

Friday August 12, 2011

Christina Aguilera is lending her voice to a Michael Jackson tribute concert planned for October in Wales.

Organisers of Michael Forever - The Tribute Concert announced Christina would be joined by members of the Jackson family, Cee Lo Green, Leona Lewis and Alien Ant Farm, known for their cover of Smooth Criminal.

The announcement came after more than two weeks of silence about performers for the October 8 show at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

While the event is being endorsed by the singer's mother and some of his siblings, brothers Randy and Jermaine Jackson have protested over its timing.

The concert is scheduled to take place during the trial of a doctor charged in Jackson's death.

The singer's estate is also not affiliated with the concert.
