Russian fans place flowers, handmade signs and memorabilia in Jackson's memory outside the American embassy on Friday morning. In 1993, Jackson performed a historic concert in the Russian capital as a major Western superstar – and the visit inspired him as well, producing his song "Stranger in Moscow."
