Professional Bio of Jalles Franca as MJ THE LEGEND

Jalles Franca moved to the United States from Brazil at the age of 16, to fulfill his dreams as a professional dancer in Las Vegas. At the age of 21 he began a 7 year residency as a performer, dancer and percussionist at Studio 54 Nightclub at the MGM Hotel & Casino.

Soon after the passing of his idol, Jalles began dedicating his talents to pay tribute to the late Superstar. Almost immediately he began winning numerous local contests for “Best Michael Jackson Impersonator,” Best overall “look” and “Best Moonwalk.” 4 years later, he has mastered his craft and has been featured in multiple tribute shows on the Las Vegas Strip, developing his tribute as “MJ THE LEGEND.”

            Honored to be coined one of the ‘top’ MJ Tribute Artists in the industry, Jalles enjoys sharing his love and respect for Michael with the millions of MJ fans here in Las Vegas, the United States, and throughout the World. He currently performs in the nation’s #1 Michael Jackson tribute show, MJ Live! at the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. In addition, he holds the title as the official MJ tribute artist for "Thriller Villa," Michael Jackson’s preserved Las Vegas mansion and the home he and his children resided in during his final years.
