Impersonation is the act of acting like someone else, everything about them, the way they dress, sing, dance, talk. These are acts that requires great patience, hard work and a lot of practice. It also requires the impersonator to know everything about the character, every small inch of detail to be able to pull off a similar act of the character.
For Sergio Cortes, born on July 30th, 1971 in Brazil, this act began when he was a child. He was always obsessed with the Jackson Five, but he paid particular attention to Michael Jackson, who was not only the lead singer of the group but also was the youngest of them all. He focused solely on Michael Jackson because he was a look alike. A complete almost too-perfect-to-be-real duplicate. As a teenager, journalists and photographers would take pictures of him and sell them as veritable Michael Jackson photos.
Sergio Cortes worked in Destiny Projects, a company specializing in managing artistic development in Brazil.it is here where he learned to perfect his art. He performed mostly in his home country, entertaining his people with his flawless duplication of the musical legend. He soon gained popularity since his fans loved his great talent, recreating every fine distinction of the ‘King of Pop’.
In 2009, after the death of the pop legend, Sergio decided to take on his career full force in a bid to keep Michael Jackson’s name alive in people’s hearts. He had already gained great media presentation so it would be easy for him to capture the title of Best Michael Jackson Impersonator. He did encapsulate the legend to total perfection. Imagine some hours he had to put into perfecting the famous ‘Moonwalk,’ something many people have tried to get to no avail. But he did.
Sergio’s voice is the perfect replica of Michael Jackson. He hits the high notes with the pitch-perfect precision you could easily think you’re listening to Michael Jackson himself. He has covered all the pop legend’s songs beautifully and with utmost perfection. He also did videos of ‘Thriller’ and ‘Smooth Criminal’ recapturing everything we all loved about Michael Jackson.
Aside from his voice, Sergio Cortes delivers the perfect Michael Jackson look. Style of dress and personality of Michael Jackson, Sergio will give that too. On stage, he also does deliver. Energetic, gifted and entertaining, he brings pure exuberance to Michael Jackson fans who were unable to see him alive and to those who just wish to relive the moments of the legend as he lived.
