Michael Jackson London, June 18 (ANI): Michael Jackson is reportedly on the lookout for a child who is missing limbs or in a wheelchair to share the stage with him during his comeback concerts in London.

The King of Pop is due to kick off his much-awaited 50-show run at the 20,000-capacity O2 Arena next month.

Concert promoters AEG Live were alleged to have sent an email to London casting agencies asking for a kid for a film.

“Michael plans to have kids from all backgrounds on stage to fit in with his message of world peace and love,” The Sun quoted a source as saying.

The singer had previously turned his This Is It tour preparation into a nightmare for organisers after making a series of weird demands for his child choir, according to reports.

The Thriller hitmaker had apparently demanded every child singer to be able to do sign language.

The 50-year-old also purportedly wanted the youngsters to be in the age bracket of five to 13, with the group allegedly consisting of “exactly equal” numbers of black, white, mixed-race and Asian children. (ANI)
