Michael Jackson's daughter Paris Jackson emerges as surprise voice of memorial

Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris Jackson, bid a tearful farewell to her daddy at the Staples Center memorial service.
With her brief speech, 11-year-old Paris Jackson also shocked the event's organizers, who said her appearance was not a planned part of the star-studded tribute to the King of Pop at Los Angeles' Staples Center on Tuesday.

"I just wanted to say, ever since I was born Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine. And I just wanted to say I love him so much."
For many watching, Paris' appearance marked a rare glimpse of a child who has spent most of her life shielded from the public.
In its execution, the speech appeared to be a surprise to those onstage and off.
"It was a surprise they were there. All of us who know them were delighted they were strong enough to come and feel this love and great outpouring for their dad," Kenny Ortega told CNN's Campbell Brown. "We would've never expected that they had the strength. It was beautiful."
