After much speculation over which celebrities would be participating in tomorrow’s memorial service for Michael Jackson, the family has released a preliminary list of famous faces expected to pay tribute to the fallen pop icon.

Mariah Carey, Jennifer Hudson, John Mayer, Usher, Stevie Wonder, Kobe Bryant, Brooke Shields, Magic Johnson, Berry Gordy, Rev. Al Sharpton, Martin Luther King III and more are included on the press release from the Jackson family’s publicists.

It was previously reported that Mariah is expected to sing “I’ll Be There,” the Jackson 5’s classic hit from 1970 that she recorded in 1992.

Tomorrow’s farewell to Michael had more than 1.6 million people registering to get one of around 10,000 free tickets.');
