For many years Elvis was one of the most talked about impersonators when it can to impersonating deceased entertainers. He had the flashy costumes, and he managed to provide a lot of fans with a lot of entertaining dance moves and gestures. In this era the younger generation is slipping away from the memories of Elvis, but there is another entertainer that appears to stand out. This new deceased entertainer that has a growing number of fans is Michael Jackson. Sergio Cortes is keeping the memory of Jackson alive through the great tribute shows that he presents.
This type of impersonator is someone that stands out because he moves beyond the local crowd. Sergio is thinking bigger than Las Vegas.
He is going on tour. This is going to expose a young crowd of music lovers around the world to the act that MJ put on for concerts. That is what Cortes does. He has a stage presence that is complete with costumes and a live band.
Sergio Cortes is another link in the MJ machine that plays a part in the sale of Michael Jackson music. Jackson has been deceased for several years, and he is earning more in sales than Elvis. At one time Elvis was the top grossing deceased artist, but Michael is surpassing him and Sergio Cortes and other impersonators play a part in this. When Michael was in his prime he had a lot of elaborate shows. This was over 3 decades ago. The young generation that is buying records now may have no idea who Jackson is. It takes impersonators like Sergio to keep the torch burning.
There are also rappers that sample MJ music. Kanye West has continually sampled Michael Jackson tracks. Some people sing his songs on stage while they perform. Michael’s sister Janet also released a CD recently. All of these things – along with the MJ tribute shows by Sergio Cortes – can make it much easier for fans to remember Michael Jackson. Sergio has certainly made the best of his time on stage. He is someone that has entertained well enough to get paid for his performances. Sergio makes a living do what he is doing and MJ fans want him to continue.
Cortes has a lot of music to work with. The Michael Jackson catalog is lengthy. This helps him keep the MJ tribute shows fresh and exciting.
