Michael Jackson's children Prince Michael and Paris were among those on hand to honor their late father in Las Vegas Wednesday on what would have been his 60th birthday.
The siblings accepted a posthumous award, the 2018 Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation Legacy Award for Humanitarian Service, on behalf of their father, who died on June 25, 2009.
"Being here today is definitely an awe-inspiring feeling, because our father was the King of Pop and he did so much," Prince Michael, 21, told Entertainment Tonight.
"We honor him in our own way, and I don't really expect anyone else to understand besides this dude right here," 20-year-old Paris said, gesturing to her brother.
Prince Michael and Paris were joined by other high-profile family members Tito and Jackie Jackson, as well as additional celebrities, for the Michael Jackson Diamond Celebration at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.
Jackson died of cardiac arrest after he had taken clinical sedative drugs propofol and benzodiazepine inside his home, leaving behind his three children. At the time, Prince Michael was 12, Paris was 11 and their younger brother Blanket was just 7.
