Such a sweet moment! Paris Jackson definitely inherited the musical talent of her late pop icon father Michael Jackson, and her maternal grandmother Katherine Jackson is super supportive of her art. The 88-year-old made sure that she was able to attend Paris’ second-ever live concert with her new band The Soundflowers on Saturday, Aug. 11 and Paris was so happy that she took to Instagram to share her gratitude.
“F–k. I can’t believe my grandma made it to our second live show ever. and she actually liked it!?!!! I was s–tting my pants,” the 20-year-wrote in the caption of a series of photos taken during her concert. “I love you so much grandma. I’m so happy we got to play for you and to play for such an incredible cause.”

Since Katherine appeared to be sitting in a wheelchair, Paris kneeled down on the ground so she could pose level with her grandmother for a series of sweet shots. Paris — whose middle name is the same as the Jackson family matriarch’s — held onto Katherine’s hand and gave her a kiss on the cheek in one of the photos, and they shared an emotional embrace in another.
Fans flooded the comments and they gushed over the touching, loving moments between granddaughter and grandmother that were caught on camera. “Such beautiful pictures,” one fan wrote, while another commented, “Grandma love is the best love.”
Paris performed with her bandmate Gabriel Glenn at the Canyon Sessions concert in LA, which doubled as a fundraising event for the charity F–k Cancer. Even though Paris using her musical talents to benefit charity would probably make her father proud, Paris once said that she only makes music as a form of self-expression and she wouldn’t necessarily make it her career.
“There are so many amazing artists in my family,” she told Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book in an interview last year, according to E! News. “If I were to do it as a career, it would change how I feel about music and I don’t want that to happen.”
