Hi everyone and welcome to this extended blog
The birthday tribute show to Michael Jackson held on 29.08.09 at the Palms Casino Hotel was very well organised and there was a great atmosphere among both artists and guests. We all came out to show our love for and salute the King of Pop.
Over the last few weeks the sense that MJ is gone has really sunk in for me and it hurts knowing this can never change. Among the TV interviews and photographs on the day I had to take a quiet moment to myself to reflect this thought. However watching the thousands of fans all dressed up in their MJ costumes and outfits, all excited and all wanting to experience the MJ magic that day in the theatre, it hit me that Michael Jackson would never really leave us. He was (is) too big of a star to ever disappear. So SIGNATURE did what we do best ….paid our dance tribute to the KING…to a rapturous applause…
We also had the opportunity to meet Michaels father Mr Joseph Jackson later that day who was accepting the Hollywood walk of fame star on behalf of MJ at the Palms hotel. It was interesting seeing this man who Michael spoke of respectfully (calling him a genius) but someone who he also described as terrifying.
Another great part of the experience was the validation SIGNATURE got from all the other long time performers and promoters from the big shows in Vegas, i.e Lion King, Phantom, Cirque de Soleil, American Superstars etc. They all loved us and many asked for us to join in the Vegas magic on a permanent basis….well………you never know………….dare we do the sin city again!!!!!
All in all the fans enjoyed the MJ songs and that’s the main thing. The show is to be televised in its entirety sometime soon on local Nevada TV and highlights to be shown nationwide throughout the states. (check local listings)
Speaking of TV signature got a massive surprise on Monday (31.08.09) morning while in this foreign land we got a phone call to switch on the TV only TO SEE US performing on the OPRAH WINFREY show which was taped in May 2009. It was obviously a repeat broadcast but nevertheless took us by surprise…..and cemented a wonderful time in VEGAS.
For UK fans the Oprah Winfrey show will be broadcast on the 11th September 2009 (see our twitter page for times on the day)
Finally as Michael Jackson is being laid to rest in Forest Lawns cemetery Los Angeles today we pray that God Blesses your soul and may you Rest in Peace Mike. ..The world will never be the same without you…as will I………love always…..
