MY MICHAEL JACKSON CHAPTER
This is my very first blog and I wish I had this forum to share my experiences while I was on the Tour. Since I didn’t, I’ll try to recap to the best of my ability on this amazing journey.
I remember when the Michael Jackson Tribute Show World Tour began, I felt like I was going to embark on something extraordinary. The excitement of discovering new cities, different cultures and developing new friendships. Of course, I packed everything BUT the kitchen sink. I should have known in the beginning that I was going to be stuffing my bags and carry-ons with NEW items after each city.
I have toured through some amazing parts of the world singing Opera which was in itself quite magnificent. The costumes, the full orchestra, singing in a different language and the dramatic staging was always so magical to me. Bringing to life music that was composed hundreds of years ago always gave me an out of body experience. BUT doing a world tour performing Michael Jackson music…. That was a whole different ANIMAL. The crazy energy and excitement from the audience members when I stepped onto stage. Audience members dressed like Michael, singing the songs with you, standing up on their feet throughout show while we perform hit after hit after hit. I had this bigger than life feeling and it only made me want to give more and more and more in my performances. The energy and sweat coming from the dancers, the hypnotic vocals coming from the singers and that raw, edgy, funky sound coming from the band made me think every night that I was the luckiest performer in the world!!!
I am really sad to see this Chapter in my life end but oh what a Chapter it was. I’ve come away from this with so many amazing friends from around the world that I will have for the rest of my life. Happy Memories, good times, lots of dancing, laughter, and tears of joy. I toast to all of you who have shared in this journey and look forward to the journeys ahead.
