Michael Jackson fans celebrate his life in New York City

Michael Jackson fans danced in the aisles of Harlem’s famed Apollo Theater on Tuesday to celebrate his life, cheering and placing tributes on the stage where the “King of Pop” performed as a child.

A line stretched across several city blocks from the theater with fans chanting Jackson’s name to passing tourist buses and singing his songs as they waited to see a 45-minute music and video tribute being repeated throughout the day.

Here’s a look at fans inside the Apollo celebrating his life.
