It’s a rare person who hasn’t, at some time, given some thought as to what constitutes the measure of a man. By what should one judge himself, others, or the output of a human life. Many people will spend a lifetime trying to figure out how to measure their life. For others it’s a bit easier and at the same time more complex. Artists in general have an advantage in critiquing their own life. An artist will usually view the measure of his life in the legacy of his art. But at the same time there’s an important question of interaction.

Many artists feel that interaction is vital to art. And that’s why it might well be said that only a few performers have gained true immortality through their creative output. Ask a man named Sergio Cortes about the subject and one might find some easy answers. Because in speaking to him it’s obvious that a man’s legacy can continue, in full interactivity, far past the point where he himself has passed away. The reason is that he has another title, MJ impersonator Sergio Cortes.

Cortes is a Michael Jackson impersonator who not only excels at his craft, but who also shows the nature of artistic legacy. One of the biggest reasons for this is that there’s a lot of people working to impersonate Jackson as a performer. But one of the biggest mistakes people make when considering an artistic legacy has to do with confusion between art and artist. It’s true that art needs to stand apart from the person who created it. But at the same time, to emulate the nature of a particular artist in performance one can never forget the actual man or woman. An artist creates art, but they’re still a human being who brings any number of different cultural and personal aspects to a performance. Cortes is one of only a very few, or even arguably the only, Jackson impersonators who really grasps this fact of life.

Cortes isn’t content to simply bring Jackson’s performances back to life. He recognizes that the totality of one’s art needs to involve spontaneity and personal contributions. As such he’s learned everything about Jackson’s life. He can speak like Jackson, dress like him, and most importantly he can live like Jackson as well. And this is what has most grasped public interest with Cortes. Because Cortes isn’t content to simply bring Jackson’s art to life for people, he brings Jackson’s spirit to them as well.
