Local meets Michael Jackson’s family at Melbourne concert
WHILE attending The Jacksons in concert, Mansfield’s Liam Wilson won a social media competition to meet The Jacksons after the show in Melbourne, along with 18 other winners.
Following the meet and greet in Melbourne, the producers of the concert invited Liam to their Adelaide concert, after which he had a private halfhour chat with the Jacksons in their dressing room.
Not only did Liam get to meet the brothers of Michael Jackson, he was invited to perform for them which was a dream come true for Liam.
At the end of their meeting Liam said he felt like one of the brothers.
And the brothers were amazed by the performance Liam had prepared for them.
Liam ‘Bugsy’ Wilson is well known for busking at the Mansfield markets and is studying Performing Arts at Transit Dance, Melbourne and has been in 30 productions over the past two years including the lead in a Motown Medley at Crown Casino.
During his gap year he travelled to every single significant Jackson landmark including their family home in Gary Indiana, Neverland, The Apollo Theatre in New York where the Jacksons performed as a young Jackson 5, Michael Jackson’s recording studios and his final home and gravesite to name a few.
Liam also received a letter from the Jacksons’ father, Joseph, for his 21st birthday.
