Michael Jackson has impersonators all over the world. Either through makeup or surgery, they have constructed a way of looking just like the former pop star. They even can imitate him through the different stages of his life. None of them are as good as Michael Jackson impersonator Sergio Cortes. He stands apart because of his uncanny resemblance to the King of Pop. He has the moves, the style and the look of Michael Jackson.
Growing up Cortes from Barcelona began mimicking Jacksons dance moves simple because he liked his style. He didn’t really intend to impersonate the star but his face looked just like him that he started drawing in crowds wherever he went. As a teenager, reporters began to approach Cortes to take his photograph which were then sold as though they were Michael himself. A journalist posted his pictures and videos of Cortes online and he instantly went viral. I went through his photos and videos myself and found it nearly impossible to tell the two apart. After Michael’s passing Sergio became extremely distraught. He decided to devote his life to impersonate his favorite artist. He has tons of videos on YouTube where you can watch his amazing performances as Michael Jackson. Fans have created Facebook pages in his honor that are chalk full of performance videos and info. Sergio has even appeared on numerous television shows. He even performed on American Idol. He is a client of Destiny Projects, a company that specializes in managing artist development.
Sergio Cortes worked very hard to get to where he is today. Once he realized everyone was taking notice he immediately began to put in long hours honing his craft. He learned Michaels mannerisms and dance moves. He even practiced on changing his voice to sound just like Michael Jackson. Sergio currently lives in Brazil but performs as Michael Jackson all around the world. A few years back Sergio presented a tribute show in Madrid. His current project is in Italy, with a two hour performance called Human Nature Llive Show. His show reminds you of Jacksons spirit and will leave you breathless.
