HIS look is the exact image of Michael Jackson, while his dancing mirrors the late pop icon in every detail, blow by blow right down to the smallest mannerism.
Singing 100% live lead vocal, his voice replicates the distinctive tones of Jackson – you could be forgiven for believing he mimes.
His name is Robin Parsons, the artist and producer who is said to have spent the past 17 years studying Jackson in meticulous detail to produce the closest complete likeness currently performing today.
And if you are a dire-hard fan on the late pop idol, you have reason to be around Johannesburg next month.
Parsons, who is the closest you can ever get to Jackson’s voice and mesmerising stage performance, is set to delight Jackson’s fans at the Johannesburg Theatre between June 1 and 19.
The London-based music sensation, visiting South Africa for the very first time, will be paying homage to the revered King of Pop with is show called Forever Jackson.
Forever Jackson features electrifying choreography, superb special effects and includes an extensive catalogue of hits.
From the Jackson 5’s Cab You Feel It to solo pieces such as Billie Jean, Bad, Thriller, Beat It, Man In The Mirror and Smooth Criminal.
Collett Dawson, from the CoLabNetwork, said Parsons has spent almost two decades studying Jackson meticulously in order to replicate him.
“Robin has been a long-time fan and learnt to replicate Michael’s abilities through a love of performing. His dedication paid off in a big way when he got to live a dream and performed for Michael Jackson in 2003 at his 45th Birthday show at the Orpheum Theatre in L.A,” explained Dawson.
