If you live in Brazil, you may think that The King of Pop, Michael Jackson is still alive. Sergio Cortes is one of the premier Michael Jackson impersonators and is recognized worldwide for his astounding ability to replicate the dance moves, voice, walk and striking appearance of the late, great entertainer, Michael Jackson.
It all began when, at an early age, Sergio Cortes was provided an opportunity to dress as Michael Jackson and photographs were taken of him dressed in this manner. Upon seeing the photographs, and the uncanny resemblance and response to his look and demeanor in imitating The King of Pop, things began to really come together for Cortes.
Since that time, Sergio Cortes has had opportunities worldwide to entertain people with his spot on impersonation of Michael Jackson. He has appeared on television numerous times, including the Wendy Williams talk show when she did a segment on celebrity look-a-likes, and has performed live on American Idol in various countries.
Often, Mr. Cortes is performing Michael Jackson Tribute shows which celebrate the life and talent of Michael Jackson. These shows, sometimes going longer than two hours, highlight the popular musical hits of the famous Jackson, and also, recreate some of Jacksons stage aesthetic preferences. Choreography, stage effects, voice and artist resemblance all come together in those hours and give the audience the illusion that they are really witnessing a performance by Michael Jackson himself.
Mr. Cortes has captured the hearts of his fans as evident by his staggering number of followers on his social media accounts. His Facebook page has over 17,000 fans, many of which send him public messages daily professing their love for him and the work he is doing. It is easy to see why his fan base is so large, since the death of Michael Jackson, there has been a large void in the hearts of those fans. Mr. Cortes not only emulates the physical appearance, voice and dance abilities of Michael, but also continues the social message as well. Just recently on his official Facebook page, Mr. Cortes wrote an emotional response regarding the human injustices that are happening around the world. In this way, he is the ultimate Michael Jackson impersonator, reflecting both the physical appearance and social sensibilities of the departed King of Pop.
