I am Delisco James and I have created this new Michael Jackson show with a personal touch. There are many impersonator shows out there THIS IS NOT ONE of them; this is more than that because we ACTUALLY sing, act, and dance everything live and we have so much fun and so will you. There is a story, my story, your story, and our that connects us all together with a soundtrack where every song in the show you are guaranteed to love.
Michael Jackson is the reason why I do what I do today in singing and dancing and sharing my story of overcoming the obstacles that were before me as a Foster kid, and young man growing up in America. Let me share my personal story with you.
I never spoke a word until I was 5 years old. The very first song that I sang in front of an audience was ‘Ben’ by the young Michael Jackson. When I sang the song, I saw many people crying…I felt that there was something special about how I was communicating to the audience. I realized at 9 years old that there was something special about it. Little did I know that three years later, I would be moved again by an encounter with the future King of Pop. A lot of people don’t know this, but whenever he went on tour, he invited underprivileged to see the show for free and I was one of those kids. He blocked a block of seats for the inner city kids and he would surprise them. We didn’t know where we were going and we walked in and it’s a Michael Jackson concert. I cried for the first time in my life from the emotion of being moved by the music. As a 12 year old kid, I thought ‘I’m gonna do this,’ I’m going do the same thing one day…It’s really come full circle and time for me to give back.
After winning a reality competition on the “E! Network” a few years back, where Virginian and Las Vegas legend, Wayne Newton, gave me the name “The Entertainer.”
Since that time, I have performed internationally and has had a successful Las Vegas concert run at the Las Vegas Hilton. Those successes, has led to a steady gig as lead vocalist for The Music of Michael Jackson, a national touring show which features MJ’s biggest hits treated to full orchestra arrangements. It’s a tribute. It’s paying homage to him. I do Michael’s moves, but I have my own signature moves as well.
This show touches many hearts wherever it lands and it is a vehicle to keep MJ’s legacy alive in a positive light. As a fan, I know what Michael and the Jackson’s did for me personally and I want to share that with the world. Your contribution will go toward a great project that is bringing forth light and LOVE into a dark world because we really need it in these uncertain times.
Thank you Michael!
“Thank You Michael” is the first single off James Delisco’s 5 song EP and concert event (The MJ Experience). The new single and concert event is dedicated to Michael Jackson and is designed for his fans both old and new. This is NOT an impersonator show, it is unique celebration to Michael Jackson and his 50 years of amazing gifts of music he has given and continue to give the world. This is ‘The Entertainer,’ ‘Broadway Star,’ and singing and dancing sensation Delisco James’ way of giving back to his mentors’ legacy, as well as introducing MJ’s music to a whole new generation. With his band, featured singers, dancers, light show, and ever changing set list, James through his personal story as an underprivileged child who was invited to see Michael live when he was 11 years old delivers an incredible MJ Experience. James is known for performing and touring internationally with symphony orchestras, but after breaking from that he recreates some of Michael’s most electrifying moments; including the days with his brother’s in the Jackson 5, and his groundbreaking performance of ‘Billie Jean’ on Motown’s 25th anniversary special. The show’s finale, a recreation of the epic video “Thriller”, will leave the audience spellbound and remind us why Michael Jackson will forever be the “King of Pop” and this fans way of saying “Thank You Michael.

Administrator’s Note: I became a follower of James Delisco after my first experience with The Music of Michael Jackson tribute show in 2010. What I love about him the most is that he pays a wonderful tribute to Michael, but in his own unique style. His shows are vibrant, fun and energetic. He will actually dance with members of the audience and will get you to actively participate. It made me feel that we were all a part of the tribute to Michael and not just spectators. The singing is magnificent! When he sang, “Human Nature,” it brought tears to my eyes and I felt like Michael was really there.
You have only heard a snippet of his life story, but when I heard him tell it with such detail, I was moved to tears again. It was heart wrenching to hear what he went through as a child, then secondly, to know that Michael’s generosity and talent not only inspired him, but also gave him hope to become the entertainer that he is today.
