Washington: Michael Jackson’s family will attend the world premiere of the late pop star’s biopic.

Katherine Jackson and her two children Tito and Rebbie will join David Gest for a special screening of his documentary ‘Michael Jackson: The Life of an Icon’ which focuses on the life of the legendary pop star with special interviews from family and friends.

Gest has also planned an after event party which will feature special performances from the legends who appear in the film, and will also present a special gift to Tito and his fiancee to mark their engagement.

“I am thrilled that Katherine, Tito, Rebbie, director Andrew Eastel, Thomas [Mesereau] and Susan [Yu] as well as 100 stars will be in attendance for the world premiere of my new film. There is going to be a jam at the invitation-only after-party following the premiere and more than 20 legendary artists who appear in the film will take part. This party is going to be historic,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

The star-studded world premiere will be at the Empire, Leicester Square, in London.
