How can a person’s mystique permit you to know him better? Well, that’s about the only thing Sergio Cortes fans have available to become better acquainted with the famed Michael Jackson impersonator.
Michael preferred a certain mystique, and so does Sergio. However, Sergio’s is all his own. This means they had something in common that was, nonetheless, separate and apart! Ironically, Sergio is using it as well as his uncanny ability to bring MJ to life which is expanding on Sergio’s own fame. Most probably, this was not a planned road to success for Sergio, but it is taking shape.
There are many commentaries and blogs about Sergio, but because of his mystique, some commentaries are stabs in the dark. I think Sergio enjoys watching the curious minded try to solve his coveted private life, which also is, in effect, a fabulous strategy for Sergio’s publicist. This creates frenzy, and fans love frenzy. It also creates gossip and rumors. Fans love celebrity gossip (and so do gossip magazines and tabloids). There is not another impersonator who has attempted celebrity through mystique for fear of being forgotten or labeled ‘dark.’ This could become a new technique for impersonators, thanks to Sergio Cortes.
On the gossip and rumor scene, while not recent, there is some indication that Sergio has had some constructive facial surgery performed by Michael’s plastic surgeon. (I’d love to see Wendy Williams take this one on!) It is now reported that Sergio Cortes was born in Antofagasta, Chile, and not Barcelona, Spain, or somewhere in Brazil. Will we ever know? Sergio Cortes also is skilled in graphic arts and design. What is Sergio’s net worth? Well, that hasn’t even reached the gossip coffers yet! Someone also is mixing Sergio up with a professional tennis player born in Antofagasta, Chile. My gawd, Sergio, you actually must have been born in Barcelona!
I have wondered about the reactions of The Jacksons when they are asked about Sergio Cortes. There is no public information available on this subject that I have been able to locate. This either means Sergio Cortes has a private agreement with them to perform as Michael, or they are so thrilled with his ability to rekindle the flame of such a beloved son, father and brother in their lives, they are speechless.
Sergio Cortes has said it is a privilege to impersonate the King of Pop. So, there are no pressures associated with impersonating a celebrity of great magnitude for two hours at a time before throngs. He must lose himself in the moment as he mesmerizes fans. That’s mighty, as Sergio Cortes rises to a fame of his very own.
