When “The Jacksons: An American Dream” came out, I was a young girl, but I remembered it well. I was so struck by the movie because of the music, and I had never heard most of the music before. I’m a product of the 90s, and even though I was born in the 80s, a lot of my memories come from the 1990s. I don’t know much about music that was around back in the 70s when the Jackson 5 was most prevalent. After watching the movie, I fell so in love with Michael Jackson that I became obsessed. I remember the movie had come on TV, and unfortunately, I couldn’t watch it unless it was repeated on TV.
Years had passed, and I remembered looking for the movie everywhere, but I had a hard time finding it, even if I just wanted to rent it. I remember in the mid-2000s I had come down from my Michael Jackson craze, and I finally found the movie to own, and I began watching it over and over again. I started loving Michael Jackson all over again, and I had even planned on going to his reunion concert. It was all because of that movie why I chose to go to Michael Jackson’s reunion concert, which ended up costing me an arm and a leg.
Unfortunately, that concert was the last time I would ever see Michael Jackson in person, and it was also the first time I’d ever seen him in person. Michael Jackson passed years later, and his death broke my heart. Even though Michael is no longer living, I still enjoy watching The Jackson movie as well as listening to Michael Jackson’s hit songs. I found several ways to numb the pain of Michael Jackson’s loss, and one way was by taking in Michael Jackson impersonators. I always loved watching people who liked to impersonate Michael Jackson, but not everyone did it as well as they thought they did.
Over the years, I’ve seen many impersonators, but trust me when I say that I’ve never seen one quite as good as Sergio Cortes. You know when somebody is good at what they do, and someone tells them that they wish their parents could be around to see how good they are doing? That’s how I feel about Sergio Cortes. Sergio is so amazing when it comes to performing like Michael Jackson, and I wish Michael was around to see how good he is because I know Michael would be proud of Sergio as well.
