MJ LIVE is the ultimate tribute to the King of Pop, and it’s coming to the Niswonger Performing Arts Center on Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

MJ LIVE is the number one Michael Jackson tribute show in the world showcasing the energy, excitement, spectacle, and pure joy of this legendary superstar and his music. Experience this awesome, theatrical stage production with its powerful sound, spectacular lighting, visual effects, team of dancers and live band on stage taking audiences back to when the King of Pop ruled the charts -- along with the Michael Jackson tribute artist’s spot-on breathtaking impersonations, performed by impersonator, Jalles Franca.

A long time fan of the King of Pop, Jalles began imitating the star’s signature dance moves during his routines at Studio 54 and various other venues. Soon after the passing of his idol, Jalles began dedicating his talents to pay tribute to the late superstar. Jalles has won numerous contests for “Best Michael Jackson Impersonator,” best overall “look” and “Best Moonwalk.” Billing himself as “MJ The Legend,” Jalles continues to mesmerize Michael Jackson fans in his performances at private and corporate events, festivals and arenas. The Las Vegas Walk of Stars recently honored Jalles on December 17th during their 86th star dedication ceremony. A star was placed in front of the Paris Hotel and Casino to honor this sensational performer, dancer and percussionist.

Sing along to many of Jackson’s biggest hits presented all on one stage, including “Bad,” “Billie Jean,” “Beat It,” “Dangerous,” “Smooth Criminal,” “Black & White,” “Thriller,” “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough,” and many more. MJ LIVE also includes a Jackson 5 segment (“I’ll Be There,” “I Want You Back”) inspired by Soul Train.
