Mumbai: Where the entire world is remembering MJ on his first death anniversary, which falls today, living legend Lata Mangeshkar is regretting the fact that she could never meet the King of Pop while he was alive.
Melody queen Lata Mangeshkar has said that she regrets never meeting MJ. "Never got opportunity to meet him...ill always have this regret in my heart... (sic)," Lata wrote on the microblogging site Twitter.
Describing Jackson as one of the greatest pop artists, the 80-year-old legend tweeted, "My humble tribute to one of the greatest pop artists ever, Michael Jackson...may his soul rest in peace...".
On the other hand, Bollywood's renowned playback singer Sonu Nigam, who is a huge fan of late pop legend MJ, has said that he is working on a tribute for Jackson with his brother Jermaine Jackson.
"I am working on a song which will be my tribute to Michael Jackson. This will be the first tribute song to the singer with one of his family members. After the song is recorded, I will work on a music video and release it soon," Nigam told reporters here.
"I am very happy that Jermaine agreed to work on the song with me," he added.
"Micheal Jackson was a great artist and as an artist it is my duty to appreciate his commendable work. He changed a lot of things in the music industry and I don`t think any singer around the world is left untouched by the kind of work he has done," said Nigam.
"I was just two miles away from Michael Jackson`s house where he died. When we got to know the news. I, my wife and my son, we went to his house in the evening and lit a candle there. So many people were standing there," he revealed.
