Janet Jackson revealed to the audience at Essence Festival Sunday night that she didn’t know what to do and how to move forward….
Janet then went on to reveal that:
“I talked to my brother and we started to talk about my father’s strength … We’re a black family that came from Indiana and, we broke all kinds of records from all around the globe. That’s truth.”
Continuing through tears, she said, “My father was a great man. My brother asked me, ‘If he were here right now listening to this conversation, what do you think he would say to you?’ and I think my father would’ve said, ‘Janet, please, finish what you started and I will be there with you every step of the way in your heart.’”
She then dedicated the performance to her dad and said, “Let’s celebrate my father. My father would want to celebrate his life.”
