Michael Jackson Tribute Act: raising money for Great Ormond St Hospital

 Michael Jackson Tribute Act: raising money for Great Ormond St Hospital

CHECK OUT AURA MAYFAIRS OFFICIAL BLOG HERE
 Last Monday (19th November), we were lucky enough to welcome Michael Jackson impersonator and talent extraordinaire Anthony King to Aura Mayfair.
Anthony is a choreographer, author and artist from London, and he teaches commercial pop and the acclaimed "Michael Jackson Style Dance Class" at the world famous Pineapple Dance Studios. The MJ class was founded by Anthony over 6 years ago, and over 5 years ago it was recommended by Michael Jackson's official website! Very cool. He has been performing professionally since he was only 10 years old, and has performed all over the world!
Anthony and his team arrived at Aura at around 10am. They had a lot of transforming to do in terms of staging and lighting, so they got down nice and early to make sure that everything ran smoothly. Once all of the equipment was up and running, a full dress rehearsal for the evening show began...

More rehearsing...
Doors opened at 7pm for a canapé reception and the club rapidly started to fill up. Everyone fought to the front of the stage to make sure they had the best view!
At 8.30pm, the show began... and it was amazing! Anthony performed all of MJ's greatest hits, including my personal favourites Man In The Mirror, Stranger In Moscow, and Smooth Criminal.
We were joined by many famous faces from Pineapple Dance Studios, including Andrew Stone who was recently on Celebrity Big Brother...

From the dance moves to the vocals to the stage production, everything about Anthony's performance was exceptional! We had a full house, and every single person was dancing and singing along to all of their favourite hits! 


It was great to see so many people come down to support such a great cause and raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital - thank you!
