Michael Jackson reigned as one of the best-selling solo music artists ever, selling an estimated 1 billion total sales worldwide according to Billboard, until his untimely death in June 2009. But how many are aware that the King of Pop topped Forbes’ list of the highest-earning dead celebrity for 10 of the 13 years since his demise?
Without a doubt, Jackson’s legacy, music, and dance have continued to live on through the years. Just ask longtime Las Vegas entertainer and Jackson fan Jalles Franca, who landed here from Brazil more than 25 years ago in pursuit of his dream to become a professional dancer.
Devoting himself to meticulously re-creating the “Gloved One,” he now stars in the popular Strip production, MJ Live: Michael Jackson Tribute Concert, fulfilling his dream in a very big way. Thrilling audiences with his striking resemblance and mannerisms coupled with precision vocals and signature dance moves, Franca brings Jackson back to the stage and his adoring fans in true form. To say he does justice to his hero cannot be denied; his entrancing, high-energy performances have gained recognition for best Michael Jackson impersonator, best overall look and best moonwalk. mjliveshow.com
