Back before the days of Twitter, Facebook and Youtube, one would have to go through great lengths to find a Michael Jackson impersonator. What does one do? Search for an actor on Craigslist and be completely disappointed because they had no reel? Luckily Sergio Cortes. Even after MJ’s sad passing, his popularity has still been retained worldwide. In addition to the talent and the moves and the singing voice, a good Michael Jackson person has the look and voice down pat. It’s a unique look not easily mimicked. In fact, Sergio Cortes bears a striking resemblance to MJ himself, passersby would be very confused, his countenance is beyond stunning. Feel free to check out the Facebook page to solidfy that notion.
Sergio Cortes does not lipsync during his concerts and he has a well-seasoned singing voice singing the tunes, whether it be with his backing band or a capoella, as well as hitting Mr. Jackson’s mannerisms and high pitched “woo-hoo” notes. His sets are long and exquisite, he doesn’t miss a beat and the crowd thoroughly enjoys every performance, being much reminiscent of their childhood and idyllic hero Michael Jackson. What is crucial is never taking the audience out of the immersive MJ experience.
Moreover, MJ Impersonator Sergio Cortes has been on national TV, via a performance live on a Mexican show called Laura. He has the foresight and appreciation of the real MJ to invite member of his crowd to the stage for a fulfilling concert unlike other impersonators, who do street performances and don’t really have the experience possessed by the clear veteran Sergio Cortes.
By now it’s no Secret Sergio Cortes is one of the best MJ impersonators available, and travels internationally for festivals, private performances and TV gigs. Maybe MJ is pleased with Sergio Cortes holding the legacy of the superstar, who upon viewing Cortes’ performance, should be realized as the most profound entertainment talent of the 20th and 21st century.
