MJ honoured with Walk of Fame star in Las Vegas

August 31, 2009 11:38 IST

Michael Jackson has been honoured with a star on the Palms Casino's Walk of Fame in Las Vegas.

The singer received the tribute on what would have been his 51st birthday on August 29.

His father Joseph took the place of the King of Pop in accepting the honour.

'I wish he was here to see this take place,' Contactmusic quoted Joseph as saying.

Jackson died from a cardiac arrest at his Los Angeles mansion on June 25.

The LA County coroner has officially ruled his death homicide.
