Thousands Turn Out To Honor Jackson at Second Line


New Orleans celebrated the life of the pop icon Michael Jackson in her own singular way- with a huge second line parade led by the Revolution Social Aid and Pleasure Club with the Rebirth Brass Band providing stellar accompaniment.  Organizers estimated at least 2000 people crowded the 7th Ward neighborhood for the two-hour parade.  The Rebirth, which was augmented by former members John “Prince” Gilbert on saxophone and Kenneth Terry on trumpet along with other members of the brass band community started things off with “Gotta Be Startin’ Something.”  They tore through “Billie Jean,” “Bad” and other classics from the late King of Pop.
