A year to the day after the late Michael Jackson died, his former guitarist Orianthi is taking the stage on Live with Regis and Kelly to perform her latest single from her solo career. Orianthi’s last name is Panagaris revealing her Greek heritage. She is a Greek Australian from Adelaide who has been living the Hollywood dream in the US. At the time of Jackson’s death, Orianthi had spent months in rehearsals with the king of pop and had been tapped to be the touring lead guitarist on his “This Is It” tour; she was later featured in the documentary posthumously released of the same name. A few months ago we Orianthi talked to Greek Reporter about her career, and Michael Jackson.
