Spike Lee Throws Michael Jackson A Birthday Pary in Brooklyn

Fans of the King of Pop are gearing up for the second annual party in Michael Jackson's honor this weekend. Hosted by filmmaker Spike Lee, "Brooklyn Loves Michael" is expected to draw tens of thousands of revelers to Prospect Park's Nethermead Meadow.

Last year's event included singing and dancing (and some tears) to Michael Jackson songs and videos projected onto a jumbotron screen. There was also a group singalong of "Happy Birthday" to the late superstar. Last summer, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz officially proclaimed August 29th "Michael Jackson Day" at the party.

Sunday would have been Michael Jackson's 52nd birthday.
