Michael Jackson could sing, dance, choreograph, direct, act and even draw. For more than 40 years he was a global figure, contributing to music, fashion and dance in unprecedented ways and influencing artists in multiple genres. There is no other individual artist who has been awarded as much as the King of Pop and this June, Candlelight is paying tribute to him at CHIJMES Hall for a night of his Number Ones and more.
Undeniably one of the 20th Century’s most significant cultural figures, Michael Jackson was on another level. While he wasn’t able to read or write music and had no formal training, he recorded ideas by beatboxing and imitating instruments vocally including bass lines and string arrangements.
With this upcoming Candlelight tribute, VOX string quartet will reimagine many of Jackson’s classics on violin, viola and cello. While they’re not able to do the moonwalk or the robot (or, so we think), they will be able to bring their musical energy to the stage and entertain MJ fans with renditions of “Billie Jean”, “Beat It”, “Smooth Criminal, “The Way You Make Me Feel” and many more.
This Candlelight tribute to Michael Jackson is going to be Off The Wall and no Jackson fan would want to miss out on it. Thankfully, there are two performances on 10 June where audiences will get to savour every glowing moment inside the elegant and stunning CHIJMES Hall as VOX works its musical magic.
Surround yourself with hundreds of candles and be captivated by the intimate atmosphere of this MJ Candlelight tribute.
