Prince, 14, Paris, 13 and nine-year-old Blanket today unveiled artwork by the singer, donated to the Children's Hospital, Los Angeles.

They were joined by their aunt LaToya and grandmother Katherine to the ceremony which saw 13 pieces of artwork containing personal tributes from the singer's children.

His children, whose faces were once so long hidden by their protective father, seemed relaxed in the public eye.

Fast growing teenagers Prince and Paris towered above LaToya and Jackson's mother Katherine who wore a bright orange jacket.

Prince looked grown up in a all black outfit and kept a pair of sunglasses on throughout the ceremony.

Paris wore a peach coloured top under a white waistcoat, while her aunt LaToya sported a boxy white jacket over slim fitting trousers.

The works were donated by Brett Livingstone-Strong, an artist and friend of Jackson's.

'I think if Michael was here today, he would be so thrilled,' he told the assembled guests.
