There are many Michael Jackson impersonators, there always have been, but the question is, how many of them are really good? I am talking about really looking like him, dancing like him, can dress like him and have the same mannerisms as him. There have been many of all races, ages, sizes but few you would really consider being “true” impersonators. There is a lot of competition out there and have been for a long time. There are even females who impersonate Michael. What really cuts it down to the real impersonators are the ones that have really worked with and worked for Michael Jackson in real life. There are only three that I know of that have worked for him doing promotions, release parties when a new cd comes out, and private parties. There are also only a few that has worked in his place at promotion gigs where they promote his concerts. One of the few that I can definitely say have made that cut is Sergio Cortés. He was hired by Michael and his people to represent him, and that’s quite an honor. He gave him his stamp of approval, and anyone who knows anything about Michael, knows he is obsessed with perfection. It takes quite a lot to make the cut when Michael is in charge. Here is some information about Sergio.
I checked out Sergio Cortés in Brazil and was truly surprised at how well he dances, dresses, and emulates Michael’s walk and mannerisms. He does look a lot like him; especially his hair which I found out is real, most impersonators wear wigs. I though he put on a very good show and was very impressive in the way he carried himself and did Michael. He is also very close to being the same size and height as Michael. One of the most impressive things about him is how well he dances. He can do all the moves Michael did, and do them just as well as he did. Sergio is also known for his charity work and visiting injured and sick children in hospitals.
Sergio Cortés currently lives in Barcelona, Spain where he was also born; he is pretty famous, especially in Latin America and all over Europe. His latest tour called “HUMAN NATURE LIVE SHOW” started in Italy and will travel all over Europe and South America. During his live show, he will do all of Michael’s hits, famous moves, dances and perform just like Michael did. It is a complete two hour show that is alive with all the magic of Michael Jackson. He tours with his back-up dancers, his back-up band, and back-up vocalists with costumes, lighting, and all the super special effects that are to be expected when doing a tribute to Michael Jackson. Everything they do, wear, and use are just like what was seen when Michael and his people toured. You can also count on being able to hear all of Michael’s biggest hits.
Another famous Michael Jackson impersonator is Christopher Gaspar. He lives in France and has been an impersonator for over 20 years. He also holds the distinguished honor of having worked with and worked for Michael himself as did Sergio. He also does not wear a wig but has his own real hair like Michael’s. E. Casanova is from the United States and has performed with Michael live, Navi is British and was also was picked to work with and work for Michael and has been impersonating him for over 20 years, Michael Firestone is from the United States and sings live when he does his Michael Jackson show. Ben Jackson is from France and has been an impersonator for a long time, Paul Rizzo lives and performs all over Australia, Ernest Valentino is from the United States and has also been on stage with Michael and performed with him, he has worked for him doing promotions and concerts and Carlos Riley met Michael in real life at a Thriller after party, has been performing since he was little.
