Tribute continues outside Apollo Theater

People heading to work were stopping at a makeshift memorial outside Harlem's Apollo Theater, where Michael Jackson performed as a child.

The tributes were being written Friday on pieces of cardboard, and on newspapers bearing his photo.  Says one: "Moonwalk 4Eva Michael."  Fatimah Smalls was among those paying respects. She says sharing the pain with other fans "makes it a little bit easier."

The tribute outside the Apollo began Thursday his death was confirmed. It continued well into the night.  The crowd Friday morning isn't large -- about 10 people at a time coming and going before starting their day.

Jackson first performed at the Apollo with his brothers at age 9.  The theater sign now says: "In Memory of Michael Jackson. A True Apollo Legend."
