    About a year ago, Mariah Carey sang a touching rendition of "I'll Be There" at the Los Angeles memorial for Michael Jackson.

    On Friday -- the one-year anniversary of Jackson's death at age 50 -- Carey remembered her friend on Twitter.

    "Watching 'You are not alone'..Love and Prayers to MJ 'King of Pop.' You will be remembered forever. We miss you," she wrote.

    Carey performed with Jackson in concert several times, and said she was "heartbroken" after hearing he'd died. After singing at his memorial, she Twittered, "I could barely keep myself from crying."

    Dancer Cheryl Burke told UsMagazine.com at the Roll Your Way Into A Sweat Free Summer With Revolutionary New DeoDry event that she's still affected by Jackson's death.

    "This time last year I was in New York at this time... and I was driving in a taxi down the streets and hearing all Michael Jackson music. I knew that something tragic must have happened to him," she recalled. "It's really sad because for dancers like me, I have always looked up to me and he was and still is my idol. He is really amazing and he is surely missed."

    Diddy made a montage of the King of Pop's music on his Web site.
    Jackson's three children, Prince, 13, Paris, 12, and Blanket, 8, spent the one-year anniversary of their father's death vacationing with their grandmother (and legal guardian), Katherine Jackson, in Hawaii.

    "A year has gone by but it is still just as emotional. It's very hard sometimes," Katherine recently told Britain's The Sun. "I am happy that people are celebrating the anniversary because I know the world is missing and remembering him. But every day is a struggle – I miss him immensely."

    “‘Beat It!’ I like the beat and the tune. I like the way that you can get down in the morning or in the afternoon. It is a fun pick-me-up song.”

    “‘Man In the Mirror’ because there is so much truth in it. When you listen to the words, it tells you to look at yourself. Other than that, anything else Michael Jackson made I loved.”

    “I love ‘Beat It’ because I knew all the moves. And, ‘Thriller’ because I loved the makeup, and it’s theatrical. All that hair and the dancing was fantastic. I remember very vividly performing the ‘Thriller’ video at my high school.”

    “MJ’s work ethic has inspired me the most. Even though he was hands down the best — his music, dancing, singing, songwriting — he was always striving to be better, striving to be the best, and pushing to take it to the next level.”—Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas

    Can You Feel It?

    “It’s hard to pick a favorite MJ song. But I would say that ‘Billie Jean’ is one of my favorites. Lyrically how do you make a topic so deep sound so infectious? Only him. That song wows me every time I hear it. He is the force of nature to show us what innovation and fearlessness looks like!” —Alicia Keys

    “Michael Jackson’s precision and professionalism were second to none. I’ve directly encountered him, and he gave 100 percent in anything he was involved in. To apply in life the joy he got out of pleasing others is something I will always have to thank him for.” —Marsha Ambrosius

    Speechless

    “While I think ‘Human Nature,’ is the greatest song ever recorded, it’s hard for me to summarize a lifetime of inspiration. MJ has been the single biggest influence on my music. The poise and drive he had at 50 years old was out of this world.”—Lloyd

    Time Explosion

    “Michael Jackson’s music transcends time. It continues to inspire people of all ages. The fact that my child who is four knows Michael and his work shows the true impact of his life. The greatest lesson he taught was the one of balance. Fame comes with a cost. The industry that builds you up can be the very thing to tear you down.” —Raheem Devaughn

    “MJ treated everyone kind, and just loved people. He would hug and kiss the babies, sign autographs, or just stood there and waved just so you could take a picture. That is what made his celebrity fresh.”—Michelle Williams

    Thriller

    “It’s hard to pick my favorite MJ video because, but ‘Thriller’ obviously should go down in history as the best video of all time! I remember it being the first video premiering on prime time tv, and me begging my mom to watch — amazing!” —Kandi Burruss

    “Micheal Jackson has been an influence so much to why I love the stage. I remember particularly a performance of his song, ‘Dirty Diana.’ I was in the nosebleeds section, but I felt so much a part of his whole show. That has never happened since, never happened before that, and don’t think it will ever happen again.” —Keri Hilson

    Superstar

    “I grew up listening to him and watching him, and he’s the definition of what it is to be a pop star. Everyone who has come after him has not lived up to that yet.” —John Legend

    Dreams Come True

    “I would not be the artist, performer, and philanthropist I am today without the influence of Michael.

    “The energy of Michael Jackson will live forever through the thing that he put all of his life energy into, his music. I will do my part to keep the melody alive, to keep the energy forever changing form, but never ever dying! Long live Michael Jackson.” —Ne-Yo
