Michael Jackson fans from around the world descend on gravesite

Mj Fans descended on the Forest Lawn Memorial-Park cemetary in Glendale on Saturday to mark the second anniversary of Michael Jackson's death.

People from around the world turned out to pay their respects to the "King of Pop," including several Jackson impersonators. Shutaro Kurauchi, 10 of Yokohama, Japan, performed his dancing skills, left, at fan memorial outside Holly Terrace where Jackson is buried.

At one point fans formed a large circle and sang. They left flowers, cards and hand-drawn notes and artwork at the cemetery. Beverly Sykes and Louise Bryant of England held up a sign that read "Michael Jackson Lives In Our Hearts Forever."

The Glendale News-Press has a full photo gallery from Saturday's remembrance.
