Michael Jackson memorial: What they said about Jacko

Here are some of the most memorable quotes from Michael Jackson's memorial service:

Queen Latifah said: "I'm here representing millions of fans around the world who grew up listening to Michael, being inspired and loving Michael from a distance ... Somehow when Michael Jackson sang and when he danced ... we felt he was right there ... He made you believe in yourself."

Motown Records founder Berry Gordy said: "When he did his iconic moonwalk, I was shocked. It was magic. Michael Jackson went into orbit and never came down. Though it ended way too soon, Michael's life was beautiful. He is quite simply the greatest entertainer that ever lived."

Stevie Wonder said: "This is a moment that I wish that I didn't live to see come. But as much as I can say that and mean it, I do know that God is good and I do know that as much as we may feel - and we do - that we need Michael here with us, God must have needed him far more."

Brooke Shields, recalling a moment she shared with Jackson at Elizabeth Taylor's 1991 wedding, said: "We snuck in and took pictures of ourselves next to her dress. We always seemed to revert to being little kids."
"He was often referred to as the King but the Michael that I knew was always the little prince."

Smokey Robinson, reading a note from longtime Jackson friend Diana Ross, said: "Michael was a personal love of mine. A treasured part of my world ... "

Mariah Carey, after singing I'll Be There, said: "We miss you, Michael."

President Barack Obama, asked about the outpouring of emotion related to Jackson 's death during an interview in Moscow, said: "There are certain people in our popular culture that just capture people's imaginations. And in death, they become even larger. Now, I have to admit that it's also fed by a 24/7 media that is insatiable."

The Rev Jesse Jackson , on how the Jackson family is coping, said: "They're holding up well in part because they're a strong family ... a big family, religiously devout family. Therefore, they have a sense of insulation of their faith."

Nelson Mandela, in a message read out by Smokey Robinson, said: "Michael was a giant and a legend in the music industry and we mourn with the millions of fans worldwide."

Pastor Lucious Smith said: "To millions around the world, Michal Jackson was an idol, a hero, even a king. But first and foremost this man before us today was a brother, a son, a father and a friend."

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee said: "We are the world and we are better because Michael Joseph Jackson lived. On behalf of myself and the people who are here, Michael Jackson , I salute you."

Jackson's 11-year-old daughter Paris at the service said: "Ever since I was born, Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine. And I just wanted to say I love him so much."
