In an unexpected, monumental gesture to the memory of her late father Michael Jackson, Paris Michael Katherine Jackson took the Los Angeles stage of the Staples Center and spoke to the world for the first time.
"I just wanted to say, ever since I was born Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine," Paris said.
"And I just wanted to say I love him so much."
The 12-year-old was encouraged by aunt Janet Jackson to "speak up," as she broke into tears. Joining her onstage was brother Prince Michael, as well as the first full public sighting of Price Michael II, also known Blanket.
After her few words, an overcome Paris was escorted from stage by Janet, leaving her uncles to give parting words to fans in the stadium, as well as the world.
