Five years since his death, the aura surrounding Michael Jackson refuses to cease as the late King of Pop continues to allure people through his iconic stage costumes and personal belonging exhibits.

A similar exhibition featuring some memorable costumes worn by the American singer in few of his stage performances and videos have been put up on display at the Museo de la Moda (Museum of Fashion) in Santiago, Chile.

The major attractions of the exhibit include a round neck T-shirt, featuring an angel and a pink heart with an inscription ‘Il n’y a plus que l’amour. Sauf Amour’ (There is only love. Except for Love), which he wore with a red zippered jacket in the Beat It video from his 1982 album Thriller.

The display also features the unforgettable metal studded leather jacket, donned by MJ for the cover shoot of the Dangerous World Tour program (1992-1993). Designed by the singer’s official stylist duo Dennis Tompkins and Michael Bush, the broad shouldered jacket features a scoop military neck.

Also, a 1974 patchwork detailed denim jacket, sported by Jackson in Ebony magazine’s December 1974 issue, and a 1984 replica doll wearing the legendary musician’s Beat it attire have also become a part of the exhibit.

X Factor’s Rachel Adedeji Moonwalking Into Michael Jackson Show Thriller Live

Source: The Herald – By Martin Freeman

Rachel Adedeji

RACHEL Adedeji. Does that name ring a bell? If so, how loud?

Those who heard a tinkle are among the millions who watched the now 22-year-old make the X Factor live finals in 2009.

She sang with, and was highly praised by, Whitney Houston.

The Londoner went from topping the vote in week three to leaving the show seven days later.

But finishing ninth has turned out to be a blessing rather than a curse.

Winning the show doesn’t often match the hype. Joe McElderry, anybody? Runner-up Olly Murs has been more successful and the highest-profile entrant that year proved to be Stacey Solomon, who went on to reinvent herself as a presenter.

And Rachel, meanwhile, has been quietly building a career in musical theatre.

Now she is a bigger noise as the female vocal lead in a massively popular West End show, Thriller Live.

With perfect timing the tribute to Michael Jackson is heading to Plymouth as fans of the King of Pop this week marked five years since the singer’s death.

Rachel is the female lead in the show which is more concert than musical theatre, but either way a great platform for her vocal talent.

And it is a great treat for all fans of Jacko – herself included.

“Expect to have fun, expect to sing along and be up on your feet,” she says. “We kind of force you guys to get up and dance.

“It’s put together by a team of people who love Michael Jackson as well.”

The show was conceived by Jackson family friend and author, Adrian Grant.

“Even if you are not a Michael fan you will enjoy it as well, it’s just a fun show in general.

“My big numbers are The Way You Make Me Feel, Blame It On The Boogie, but my favourite is the duet I Just Can’t Stop Loving You.

“I have always been a Michael fan. My parents always put Michael songs on as they knew he was an artist everyone could relate to.”

The other part of her career is ticking along, too.

She has put out two music videos of her own, Follow the DJ and Club Lights, and released an EP.

Rachel is currently writing and recording with various producers. A new single is due out in the next couple of weeks.

Song and dance shows take her back to her college days. She studied musical theatre, graduating with a triple distinction. Her credits include a role in the Abba musical, Mamma Mia!

2009 was actually her second crack at the X Factor. She auditioned for the show’s fifth series in 2008, reaching the boot camp final 50 stage, but narrowly missing out on a spot at the judges’ houses. She is friends with the winner from that year, Alexandra Burke.

“When I think back to those X Factor days I can’t believe I went through that. But I was honoured and privileged to be a part of it.

“It was scary at the time. It’s a pretty big deal for a young girl to pretty much expose herself to the nation.”

Now the nation is seeing a lot more as Thriller Live continues a UK tour.

Monday, June 30 to Saturday, July 5, Theatre Royal Plymouth

Museum of Science Laser Michael Jackson Show

Michael Jackson

Beginning Friday, the Museum of Science will feature two new laser shows: “Laser Michael Jackson” and “Laser Zeppelin.”

Zeppelin, sure. Laser shows have long been the purview of stoner and prog rock. Laser Pink Floyd? Of course. Laser Zep, Rush, Yes and Deep Purple. Yes, yes, why not, and sounds like a plan. But Michael Jackson with lasers? Well, that’s not something we’ve seen since Captain EO.

The MoS show will include MJ hits “Man In The Mirror” and “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough” choreographed to exciting light effects — because they know you want to reflect on your flaws then shake your booty to the ground. The Zeppelin show will feature, oh yes, “Stairway to Heaven.”

Laser Michael Jackson: 5:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. (Friday and Saturday for June) & 4:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. (Fridays and Saturdays)

Laser Zeppelin: 7:30 p.m. (Fridays and Saturdays)

Laser Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon: 9:30 p.m. (Fridays and Saturdays)

Kenny Wizz Performs Tribute Concert On Anniversary of Michael Jackson’s Death

As the fifth anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death approaches, the “Michael Jackson HIStory Show” featuring Kenny Wizz returns to North America to celebrate Jackson’s life and career.

The tour, which takes in selected venues through Western Canada and the U.S. in June and July 2014, plays the Alberta Bair Theater on June 25. That is the anniversary of Jackson’s death in 2009.

The show is a musical tribute and live concert experience which pays homage to Jackson’s catalogue of work, including his beginnings as a member of the Jackson 5, his groundbreaking theatrics in the ‘80s and his evolution into the 21st century.

All of Jackson’s biggest hits are performed live in this production that features a live band, choreographed dancers, and replica MJ costumes and theatrical lighting and effects. For the first time on tour, Wizz will also perform the “Thriller” album.

Wizz has toured the world with the “Michael Jackson HIStory Show” since 2010. Wizz was 20 years old when Jackson’s career exploded with the release of the pivotal “Thriller” album. It was Wizz’s aesthetic similarities to Jackson that first steered him towards his career.

Wizz performs regularly in Atlantic City and has toured Europe and Asia. His show has played in Las Vegas at the Riviera Hotel and Casino for 11 years.

Jackson’s influence on popular culture and music is virtually unparalleled. Beside his inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Hollywood Walk of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame, Jackson received 13 Grammy awards and 26 American Music Awards including “Artist of the Century” during his career.

Jackson’s 1982 album “Thriller” spent 80 consecutive weeks in the Billboard Top 10 and remains the best-selling album of all time with a reported 100 million sales to date.

For tickets, call the ABT at 256-6052 or visit http://www.albertabairtheater.org.
