The spirit of MJ lives on
Staff ReportFans can see everything they love about the King of Pop in MJ Live! at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. Starring Michael Jackson impersonator Michael Firestone, MJ Live (Tribute to Michael Jackson)! pays homage to one of the greatest entertainers of all time.
Before impersonating him, Firestone was a big fan of Jackson's music. His admiration turned into inspiration, and Firestone decided to pursue a career as a tribute artist when he was a teenager living in North Carolina.
Firestone's uncanny ability to emulate Jackson's moves and sound is something he learned by watching VHS tapes and listening to CDs of the iconic performer. He also attended gospel churches in North Carolina where he would sing for additional practice.
After honing his skills, Firestone landed gigs performing on China's Star Cruises where he delighted audiences with his rendition of Jackson's greatest hit songs. Before starring in his own show at the Rio, Firestone worked as a dealertainer at Imperial Palace. Dealtertainers are card dealers who also entertain by dressing like a celebrity. Some of them even get on a stage located on the casino floor and sing in costume.
Firestone's admiration for Jackson is apparent in his show. Along with looking like the superstar, Firestone brings his energy to the stage as he performs songs like "Billie Jean," "Human Nature" and "Beat It." Jackson fans won't want to miss hearing their favorite songs performed live by this talented tribute artist.
