One of my longtime wishes has recently come true. I never thought in a million years that I would have ever the opportunity to experience “The Jacksons” live on stage.
But thanks to the show "Art on Ice" the legendary Jackson brothers came all the way from the USA for the very first time to Switzerland and entertained the audience with their wonderful songs “Can you feel it”, “I want you back”, “Blame it on the Boogie”, “ABC”, “I’ll be there” and more.
Knowing that I would actually hear Jackie, Jermaine, Marlon und Tito Jackson live singing was such an overwhelming feeling.
Sure “the boys” are older now, but hey their incredible energy, charisma, likeability and quality as performer and as singer is still the same. Watching them performing the exact same choreography as decades ago makes one think that somehow time is standing still. I don’t know what their secret is, but whatever it is they are doing something right. Needless to say that Michael was missing on stage. When the four Jacksons entered the stage my mother and I couldn’t control ourselves, we had tears in our eyes. It was so emotional.
Michael was an important member of the Jackson 5. But his spirit was definitely with us. Not only because his brothers performed the song “Gone too soon” for their beloved brother, but also the FINAL song of the Show that ended with Michaels song “Black or white” was a tribute to Michael.
This was definitely the best song choice and a highlight. Michael’s wonderful message of solidarity and humanity will always keep him alive. Michael would have loved that. His message of love and tolerance was with us during the entire night. God bless his soul.
Performing “Black or white” on Art on Ice with Jessi J’s voice was fantastic. Jessi J was beyond perfect. This beautiful and multitalented lady makes us woman proud to be a girl. The award-winning British singer and songwriter is the full package.
She has the look, a fabulous voice and is a brilliant performer and of course the likeability. I love her lyrics. Each one of her songs is filled with valuable messages. I knew that she would be really good live. But she was actually amazing. Seeing the Jacksons was overwhelming. But Jessi’s performance was without a doubt literary the cherry on the icing. Jessi made the whole evening special. Thank you for being so awesome!
Olympia winner, world & European champions on Ice such as Evgeni Plushenko, Stéphane Lambiel and more international artists Javier Fernandez, Tatiana Volosozhar, Maxim Trankov, Ksenia Stolbova, Fedor Klimov, Gabriella Papadakis, Guillaume Cizeron, Elizaveta Nugumanova and Peter Gymennik made the whole evening simply perfect.Thank you all for a fab night and an unforgettable memory! God bless U all.
