Grammy Museum To Unveil Michael Jackson Exhibit

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The Grammy Museum is expected to unveil an exhibit Saturday devoted to Michael Jackson on the second anniversary of his death.

The new permanent display includes two of Jackson’s famous sequined gloves and iconic wardrobe pieces, including elaborate full suits and beaded jackets.

The exhibit, which resides on the museum’s third floor, also includes original costume sketches, sheet music for “We Are the World” other memorabilia related to the King of Pop.

Jackson died on June 25, 2009, of a propofol overdose.

Dr. Conrad Murray is accused of administering the powerful hypnotic to the entertainer to help him sleep, then allegedly failing to properly monitor him. Murray’s trial on felony involuntary manslaughter is tentatively set to begin in September.
