Sergio Cortés Brings Joy To Many As Michael Jackson Impersonator
It’s not often that we as adults get to do the things that we really want to do. We daydream about doing incredible things when we are children, and perhaps even into our teen years. But when we get older, and the pressures of life and responsibilities of adulthood press in, we give up those ideas and dreams. Sergio Cortés had a dream from his youth and unlike many, actually followed through on his dream. He is now is living a life that few of us can even imagine. He is known throughout the world as one of the best Michael Jackson celebrity impersonators alive today. And his rise to fame and fortune came in a most unusual way.
As a child, Cortés was obsessed with the Jackson Five, and in particular their lead singer, Michael Jackson. He had dozens of video performances of the singer, and he used to watch those performances constantly day and night. He would watch Michael Jackson dance and imitate his moves. He would watch how the singer would gesture and sing, and Cortés would follow suit. He got to the point where he was literally able to do everything that Michael Jackson did. He put together a small act that he only did for family and friends, little knowing that it would be a chance encounter to thrust him into stardom.
One day, Cortés was out and about, when he was spotted by a photographer who took pictures for a local newspaper. The photographer was amazed at how much Cortés looked like Michael Jackson. The photographer stopped him, spoke to him for a few minutes, then asked him if he could take a picture of him to be published in the local newspaper. Cortés readily agreed to have his picture taken, and the next day the photograph was published. The photograph made Cortés an instant sensation, and soon talent agents and entertainment organizations were beating down his door.
It was at that point that Cortés decided to become a Michael Jackson celebrity impersonator. Now he travels the world, imitating his childhood hero. He maintains a Facebook page filled with well-wishers and messages from his thousands of fans. On the page he posts pictures from his different concerts and photo shoots. He has the support of his many fans, and continues to perform in shows and concerts in every part of the globe.
Sergio Cortés is now doing the things that he loves to do: emulating the greatest entertainer who ever lived, the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Through his celebrity impersonation, joy is spread to thousands of his fans and millions around the world. For one brief moment, the people that see him get to revisit the incredible talent of one of the 20th century’s greatest performers.
