Michael Jackson's three children thought celebrating the late singer's birthday was an incredible experience.
The King of Pop died in 2009 from acute Propofol intoxication and would have celebrated his 54th birthday on August 29.
Michael's mother Katherine and his sister LaToya took Prince, Paris and Blanket to their hometown of Gary, Indiana to celebrate the big day.
The kids were in awe of how much their father is revered.
'We're here in Gary, and it's a new experience for us. People are real nice here,' Prince told a local reporter at a vigil celebrating Michael's life.
'It's amazing how much he was respected and loved.'
Blanket enjoyed his time in Michael's childhood hometown too.
'It's a good place. It's good to see it, the place where our dad grew up,' he explained.
Paris revealed that it's been tough for her siblings to move on from their dad's demise.
'We've adjusted over the past years,' she said.
'And I think that coming here and seeing our dad's old house, and all the fans coming out, I think it's really sweet that they did that. [I want him to be remembered] as one of the greatest and nicest guys ever.'
