Second-line for Michael Jackson
By Eileen Fleming
New Orleans, La. – That's the Rebirth Brass Band's take on Michael Jackson's 1979 Don't Stop Till You Get Enough,' leading off a second-line on St. Bernard Avenue. It was organized by the Revolution Social Aid and Pleasure Club, and drew a few hundred people. One was Marline Young, who explains why she came.
The crowd included people of all ages, many born well after Jackson's last hit record. But they braved record-setting temperatures to give him a traditional New Orleans send-off.
