Tito Jackson visited by Michael Jackson's 'spirit'

Tito Jackson visited by Michael Jackson's 'spirit'

Tito Jackson claims Michael Jackson's "spirit" visits him on stage.

The 61-year-old star revealed he can still feel his late brother's presence when he is performing, despite the fact he died of a cardiac arrest at his home in Los Angeles in 2009.

He confessed: "All the time I feel his spirit, especially when I'm performing with the brothers on stage at a live performance."

The Jacksons musician - who continues to make live appearances with his brothers Jackie, Jermaine and Marlon to perform as a band - explained it makes him feel "happy" when he feels like the 'Thriller' hitmaker is nearby because his "warm" personality is "comforting" for him.

He continued: "You can feel the spirit all the time, absolutely. It's a happy feeling because Michael was a warm, happy, loving person. It's a comforting feeling."

Tito - who will launch his solo career later this year with his debut album - added he still talks to his late sibling on a regular basis to ask his advice on important life decisions.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I have had times when I silently talk to him. I'll ask him a question. 'What should I do?'"
