Shaheen Jafargholi will follow up his moving performance of “Who’s Lovin’ You?” at the Michael Jackson public memorial in Los Angeles earlier this week by hosting a radio tribute in honor of the late King of Pop.
Shaheen, 12, will take to the airwaves on Swansea Bay Radio, a station in his native Wales, on August 31, with a show in honor of his hero.
“He is down to come in on August 31 and we will be making it a Michael Jackson special,” Andy Griffiths, the radio station’s program director, told Britains Telegraph newspaper.
Fans of Shaheen, a “Britain’s Got Talent” runner-up, will be able to hear the show via a stream on the station’s Web site.
Shaheen was set to take the stage with Michael at the King of Pop’s “This Is It” concert series at the London O2 arena.
The series would have started on Monday July 13.
