Sergio Continues To Push The MJ Impersonation To Greater Heights

When Jackson took the stage there would often be a lot of screaming. It would be so amazing to see the man that was about to entertain fans that most people could not stop screaming. This is why he often stood on stage for minutes just to take in all the admiration. Sergio Cortes may be pushing for this same level of respect and admiration as the greatest of the MJ impersonations. He is taking his shows to even greater heights, and he is doing what no other impersonators have been able to do: Sergio is going on tour. There are videos of screaming fans that see Sergio Cortes and applaud him as he walks through town. This is the evidence of the striking resemblance that he has to Michael Jackson. Now he is trying to get himself more engaged with what Michael Jackson has done on stage to build an even greater show.

Sergio has the desire to take his “Human Nature Tour” around the world. He is thinking big much like his idol who moved beyond performing in his homeland of America when he was young. Sergio isn’t from the United States so he may be campaigning to eventually do the opposite and penetrate the American impersonation market. Barcelona born Sergio Cortes has been doing the MJ shows for a while now, but he has a lengthy music catalog to work with. He could honestly tweak the show for decades and continually add something new if he chose to. There certainly are some strong numbers like “Billie Jean” that are pertinent to the show, but Jackson still has material that is being released right now.

Cortes has been able to build a show that highlights the hits, but he can go even deeper because there were still songs that Michael Jackson recorded that were never released. These songs have been keeping the Jackson catalog alive. Many fans may wonder how these songs would have looked if Jackson was still alive to perform these tracks. If Sergio continues to grow in popularity he may have the chance to touch of some of these tracks and build an even greater MJ tribute show. Fans certainly do react well to his performance. He puts lots of work into it so it is easy to appreciate all that he is working on. Sergio has a work ethic that is comparable to MJ.

Impersonator Sergio Cortes Embodies The Spirit Of Michael Jackson

To accurately and consistently replicate the dance style and vocal range of an iconic entertainer such as Michael Jackson is an ambitious undertaking. However, it is one that impersonator Sergio Cortes makes a highly lucrative living doing so.
Born in 1971 in Barcelona, Spain, Cortes developed a passionate interest in the music of Michael Jackson at a young age. It evolved from admiring the tunes from The Jackson 5 while keeping an eye on the young singer in front, to following Jackson’s future solo career. Cortes began his impersonation work during these adolescent years. Yet he did not gain much notoriety for his work until several years later in 2012 once he hosted a tribute show in the late singer’s name. Much of his growing popularity stems from his numerous performances throughout Brazil.
Once in the presence of Cortes, it comes to no one’s surprise that so many fans flock to watch him perform as he is able to capture the very essence that was Michael Jackson. On first glance, it is easy to mistake the impersonator for the late musician. It is not just the classic gloves, shoes and hat that give cause for a double take. Cortes goes further than just wardrobe alone as his long hair and face down to the eyebrows and chin simply scream ‘Michael Jackson.’ He even nails down Jackson’s movements and mannerisms. Furthermore, thanks to meticulous studying since childhood, Cortes has nearly mastered much of Jackson’s infamous dance moves, and is even able to fluidly perform the signature and beloved moonwalk.
His entire act is wrapped up with his vocal abilities. It is no question that Jackson had an incredible and difficult to match range, and yet Cortes goes above and beyond in that category. He embodies the late musician’s vocal inflections, and sustains a remarkable amount of pitch control. Cortes also maintains a vigorous on-stage presence and energy, and each lyric that pours out of him resonates as though the King of Pop were singing the words himself.
Currently, Cortes is employed under Destiny Projects, an act that focuses strongly on artistic development. He continues to hone his skills by constantly observing every video of his favorite artist. Although the late musician is no longer here, Sergio Cortes exceeds the average impersonator and keeps the spirit of the man alive for fans to still find joy and revel in the extraordinary legacy Michael Jackson left behind.
