Mariah Carey was one of the many artists invited to pay tribute to the King of Pop yesterday at the star-studded memorial service held for Michael Jackson at LA's Staples Center. Singing the song that she returned to the top of the charts in 1992—Jackson Five’s "I’ll Be There"—the diva was overcome with emotion. Shortly after, she sent out a message to her fans over Twitter apologizing for her performance and saying, "Trying to sing today was basically impossible for me. I could barely keep myself from crying. I’m sorry that I wasn't able to pull it together and really do it right, but I was literally choked up when I saw him there in front of me. One thing I know is, we will never really have to say goodbye to MJ. His legacy lives on through his music and the millions of people. He inspired with his timeless music. He will be forever in our hearts."
