Dubai Aug 8, 2009: Friday evening, 7th July 2009, Dubai paid tribute to Music’s Greatest Icon and Acknowledged KING OF POP, Michael Jackson at The Mazaya Centre.
Organised by Dubai’s own Glenn Perry, it featured the Students and Friends of The Dubai Music School performing MJ’s classical hits in a show that had the audience (and what a great turnout that was!!) enjoying themselves on their feet singing along with the performers.
The performers not only sang, but there were at least 4 MJ lookalikes giving the audience a taste of the fantastic dance steps that MJ was famous for.
The younger students of the School gave a beautiful performance of "We are the World" with everybody in the Centre joining in.
Needless to say the finale was, of course "Heal The World", with one little worry that the roof of the Centre was going to take off, considering all who were present joined in.
That was a fantastic evening, that was – and a fitting tribute to Michael Jackson, a rarest of beings who strived to bring to the notice of the world the evils that beset us, through his music.
"Michael Jackson was a musical inspiration to many and we here in Dubai join the world in celebrating his legacy".
75 young talented singers and dance performers from Dubai will participate in the Michael Jackson tribute concert. Its amazing to see the enthusiasm in these young performers says Perry who is the producer, director and choreographer of the concert.
The young singers are busy rehearsing Jackson songs. The dance performers are working hard at impersonating dance grooves through Jackson's moves, including the famous moonwalk. Also billed to perform are The Dubai Children's Choir who are all ready to rock with the song "We are the World". A young adult chorus group called the The Desert Chorale will belt out Jackson's "Heal the World".
The concert is free. For invitations to the concert email firstname.lastname@example.org
