Award-winning vocalists Usher, Justin Timberlake, and Leona Lewis are in discussions to perform at a Michael Jackson tribute concert taking place at London’s O2 arena later this summer.
“Executives want to stage a touching tribute to Michael and think The O2 would be a fitting location,” a source spilled The Sun.
“Huge stars such as Leona, Usher and Justin have expressed enthusiasm about the project. It will be a celebration of Jacko’s life through his music.”
The insider added, “The producers want to avoid a sombre memorial tone and intend the evening to be a joyful event focusing on Jacko’s extraordinary legacy.”
No word on when the proposed tribute might take place.
R&B star Usher put his marital problems aside to pay homage to his mentor, the late Michael Jackson, during Tuesday’s public memorial at L.A.’s Staples Center. The Grammy Award winner broke down in tears as he belted out MJ’s “Gone Too Soon.”

“The protein and nutrients in low fat milk help me build muscle and stay fit,” the “Nice & Slow” singer says in the ad.
Ush is currently putting the finishing touches on his still-untitled upcoming album, the follow up to his 2008 LP, Here I Stand.
