Three months after he died Michael Jackson fans are getting a glimpse of what might have been. Rehearsals for his planned comeback tour have now been turned into the movie, "This Is It." WITN was at the first showing of the movie in Greenville at midnight. That’s where we met Angela Zeigler who says she's one of Michael Jackson’s biggest fans which is why she was the first to show up for the premier at Carmike Cinemas on Wednesday.
“It's really just to show my support for Michael Jackson, never mind what he did personally but as an entertainer, he's #1, he's top."
To show her support Angela along with her daughter drove from Goldsboro in full Jackson attire to catch the first show. Most fans we spoke to say they don't just admire the king of pop for his musical talents but also for his charitable work. So while he may be gone, because of movies like “This is It” and fans like the ones that showed up early Wednesday morning he will never be forgotten.
The move is playing across Eastern Carolina but only for a limited time and for a bit higher of a price. Tickets run at least $10.
