Los Angeles - An attorney for Michael Jackson's mother has played a song during opening statements at a wrongful death trial that the lawyer says the superstar wrote for his children.

Attorney Brian Panish also read jurors a note on Monday that the singer wrote to his mother to demonstrate their relationship.

Katherine Jackson is suing concert giant AEG Live, claiming it failed to properly investigate a doctor who cared for Jackson and was later convicted of involuntary manslaughter in his 2009 death.

AEG has denied wrongdoing as Panish told jurors they would ultimately decide whether to find AEG liable for Jackson's death and how much his mother and children should receive.
