The dynamic Tony Wilson and his talented friends present a very special evening of music & dance while highlighting one of our era’s iconic entertainers on the 10th Anniversary of his sudden passing in 2009.

 

 

 

In the early 1980’s, Tony Wilson (aka “Young James Brown”) began his entertainment career as a Michael Jackson impersonator, and was so good at his job, that he was approached to be a body double for Michael Jackson during his VICTORY tour. Tony eventually appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show and was crowned the Best Michael Jackson Impersonator

“He (Michael Jackson) would use me for the decoy work,” Wilson said. “I would have on the dark sunglasses and a glove in the limo, and the crowd would come my way…so he’d be able to get-in and get-out!”

Wilson said he still has one of the microphones that Jackson used on his Victory tour.

“What a pleasure it was to meet and work with Michael; the bonus was that I also got to befriend Joe Jackson, who, along with my Godmother Martha Reeves, greatly helped me in my career,” added Wilson.

ABOUT TONY WILSON

Tony Wilson, endorsed as the YOUNG JAMES BROWN by the Godfather of Soul himself, is a Chicago native, and has entertainment in his blood. Since a teen, Tony has been performing and electrifying audiences with his own style, showmanship, charisma and especially, his dance moves.

In his 20’s, Tony began entering contests at the historic Apollo Theater in Harlem and other venues. Tony was actually crowned the Best Michael Jackson Entertainer, and asked to be on the Oprah Winfrey Show, and Joe Jackson, Michael Jackson’s father, took an interest in and liking to Tony.

From that landmark appearance on Oprah, Tony’s life changed. Soon, major entertainers such as James Brown himself were calling on him for movie roles, to be a stand-in, or to even back them with his band. James Brown saw Tony perform, and was so impressed with his unique style and showmanship, he asked Tony to be in Tony Scott’s Internet-only short film Beat the Devil. Additionally, at James Brown’s behest, Tony was personally selected by James Brown to portray the Young James Brown in Funk Blast.

But James Brown was not the only celebrity seeking Tony’s talent; in fact, Tony was not only making a reputation for himself as a versatile singer who could harmonize with the best and belt out anything from Nat King Cole to Barry Manilow; Tony was not only being recognized for his unbelievable moves and grooves—such as moon-walking on his head, doing flips into splits, or spinning 4-5 times around like Michael Jackson—Tony was being recognized by his own peers, celebrities and political leaders, for his musical direction composition and dedication to children.
