MJ Live, the Michael Jackson Tribute Concert
Jalles Franca (appearing as Michael Jackson) moved to the United States from Brazil when he was 16 to fulfill his dreams as a professional dancer in Las Vegas. At the age of 21 he began a seven year residency as a performer, dancer, and percussionist at Studio 54 Nightclub at the MGM Hotel & Casino. A longtime fan of Michael Jackson, Jalles began imitating the singer’s signature dance moves. After the passing of his idol, Jalles began dedicating his talents to play tribute to the Superstar. He has won multiple contests for “Best Michael Jackson Impersonator,” best overall “look” and “Best Moonwalk.” MJ Live is the nation’s #1 Michael Jackson tribute show. The Rio Hotel is proud to feature the extremely talented Franca as one of its star performers and audiences in Las Vegas and in theaters across the country agree with their nightly standing ovations.
