Stars gathered to pay tribute to the late ‘King of Pop’ Michael Jackson for his humanitarian works as well as for his incredible musical legacy at ‘Save the World Awards’ in Austria.
The ceremony was held on Friday night to honour individuals and organizations, which have made considerable contributions to make the planet more sustainable for future generations, according to reports.
Organisers named this year event ‘Heal the World’ after the title of one of Jackson’s hit songs.
Jackson’s brother Jermaine Jackson was present in the ceremony to receive a posthumous prize on the late superstar’s behalf.
He also took on stage to perform Jackson’s favourite track Smile, the same song he sang at the pop superstar’s Los Angeles memorial on July 7.
The Thriller hitmaker was recognised for his “many social and humanitarian engagements, but also… his incredible musical legacy”.
Other celebrities present at the event include former US athlete Carl Lewis and actress Andie MacDowell, who hosted the evening.
