Showbiz Minute: Murray Trial, Jackson Tribute, Fantasia's Mahalia Dilema

October 5, 2015

As the Murray trial continues, more and more details of what occurred on the day the late Michael Jackson died, are being revealed. On Thursday (Oct. 6) the investigators on the case admitted to making a few mistakes with collecting evidence. But, aside from the heartache of reliving the horrific details of Michael's death, Katherine Jackson, and other family members plan to take a short break to attend the Jackson Tribute Concert in Whales, which is scheduled for this coming Saturday, Oct. 8, 2011.

In other news, rumor has it, the family of the legendary gospel singer Mahalia Jackson are against Fantasia Barrino playing the lead role in an upcoming biopic of her life.

“The family thinks if Fantasia plays the role, it’s going to sully the name of Mahalia,” executive producer Adrian Taylor told The New York Post. “They think she’s got the wrong image, having a child out of wedlock.”
