London: Late pop legend Michael Jackson's family is all set to stage a benefit concert in a bid to help children affected by the Japan quake. Michael's mother Katherine Jackson announced the Tokyo event will help a cause that her son - who died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 - would have supported.

“If Michael was alive, he would definitely have done something to help the victims of the earthquake in Japan. Michael loved children, he would have felt for those children who lost parents or homes,” MJ's mother was quoted as saying.

Michael's brothers will perform at the show as Jacksons  and 81-year-old Katherine are very 'glad to see them back on stage'.

“This concert can help children. I'm glad I can put smile on their faces again,” said Jackie Jackson.

Tito Jackson, who visited Japan after the earthquake spoke of his belief that music can unify communities all over the world.

“People can become one, as human race,” he said.

Tickets will go on sale on Wednesday.
