Paris Jackson looked a far cry from the masked little girl we once knew as she paid tribute to her late father Michael Jackson on what would have been his 54th birthday yesterday.

The 14-year-old looked all grown up as she joined her two brothers Prince, 15, and Michael Jr, 10, on a family trip to the singer's childhood home in Gary, Indiana.

The trio were joined by other family members at the house where they later held a candlelight vigil for the music legend.

Fans also left tributes to Michael outside the house where the famous family lived until 1969.

It marked the beginning of a four-day tribute to Michael, entitled Goin’ Back to Indiana: Can You Feel It.

There will be a baseball game, a special dinner hosted by the Mayor of Gary as well as a tribute concert at the local theatre.

It has been a turbulent year for the Jackson children.

Michael's nephew TJ Jackson was granted co-guardianship of the three children after a family row ripped the family apart, which saw Michael's mother Katherine, who was previously their sole guardian, go missing.
