Michael Jackson's Kids Continue Dad's Philanthropic Work
Michael Jackson's three children are continuing their late father's philanthropic legacy - they visited struggling families at a homeless help organization on Wednesday, February 23.
The King of Pop devoted much of his time and money to charities across the world, and founded the Heal the World Foundation in 1992, providing funds to benefit a variety of causes, including drug and alcohol abuse education and disadvantaged children.
Now the superstar's kids Prince Michael, 14, Paris, 12, and eight-year-old Blanket have picked up their dad's work for the needy, paying a visit to a Los Angeles-based charity which helps homeless families, according to U.S. breakfast show "Good Morning America".
Reporter Robin Roberts was granted special access to interview the singer's children and their grandmother Katherine Jackson for a GMA special, which will air on Friday, February 25. During the chat, Katherine reveals the kids have "adjusted pretty well" to life without their beloved father.
Asked about their plans for the future, Prince tells Roberts, "I guess continue what our dad was doing." And Paris, who has previously expressed her desire to become an actress, is already planning to test her skills onstage. She adds, "I'm thinking about auditioning for a play next week."
