Michael Jackson‘s brothers brought a gold, rose-covered casket carrying the King of Pop onto the stage at the Staples Center while the gospel song “Soon and Very Soon” by Andrae Crouch played. People in the crowd immediately began to weep and wailing could be heard coming from the audience. The lyrics — “Soon and very soon we are going to see the King” — have new meaning. Mark J. Terrill/AP
