"I am truly honored to be working with Global Live Events and the Jackson family members in participating in this epic event," Foxx, 43, told Us Weekly exclusively. "Michael was larger than life and I have admired him, honored him, joked about him but always loved and respected him... I hope I honor his legacy in a way that would make him laugh and cry."
