The cute picture was shared on the Jacksons’ Facebook page on Thursday. “Special family reunion @mjonelv @michaeljackson’s Blue Sapphire Birthday Celebration #MJForever #MichaelJackson #MJOne #Jackson5,” the photo caption read.

The singer of the song “Thriller” died in 2009 at the age of 50, and on August 29 he would have celebrated his 65th birthday. That day, his daughter Paris Jackson, 25, also paid tribute to him with a series of videos posted on her Instagram Story.

“It’s also my dad’s birthday,” she shared in part of the recording from the performance. “He would be 65 years old today, and he put 50 years of blood and sweat and tears and love and passion into doing what he did, so I can stand here on the stage in front of you and scream into the microphone.”

She added: “So I owe everything to him. I’d also like to take a moment to introduce my other family, which is these guys here on stage with me.”

During Michael’s 60th birthday celebration in 2018, Paris honored her late father by accepting the Elizabeth Taylor Legacy Award alongside her brother Prince.

The award was given for Michael’s humanitarian work with the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, something the singer was “so passionate about,” Prince said in his acceptance speech.

“It’s a tremendous privilege and honor to be here and receive an award not only for something that my dad was so passionate about, but also for someone who was so near and dear to his heart, and a foundation that he worked so hard for and to make goals that they’re achieving right now,” Prince said in part.
