Michal Jackson’s life might’ve been shrouded in controversy but no one can deny this man had talent. Lovingly referred to as the “King of Pop,” Jackson started his career while still a toddler. As everyone knows, he was immensely popular while alive. But even following his death, his one-of-a-kind music lives on.
The 2009 Santa Monica Food Festival
In 2009, the city of Santa Monica in California hosted a food festival. Throughout the day, the music of Michael Jackson played. Not only was this event about food but also a lot of fun activities and characters.
A magical day
Hundreds upon hundreds of individuals moved around, listening to Michael Jackson songs, meeting up with family and friends, and overall, having an incredible day. Everything about it was magical. But then something or should we say someone caught people’s attention.
A little boy
While his parents were focused on the food, this tyke was more interested in the song playing in the background. It was Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough.” For those of you who’ve heard this song, you know how hard it is to stand still.
The body takes over
That’s what happens with a lot of Jackson’s songs. The minute the beat starts, your feet automatically move. This little boy had the same problem. He just couldn’t stand still with that song playing.
The main feature
Nope…it wasn’t the food but this adorable boy. He seemed to come out of nowhere. And the next thing that happens…he’s in the middle of a crowd dancing his little heart out.
He’s got some moves
This wasn’t just a small child doing some silly dance. No, for this guy, he meant business. There’s no question he hears Michael Jackson songs at home and it shows. He was completely into his unprompted performance.
A viral video
Thankfully, someone uploaded a video of this dancing boy. Since going out on social media, it’s been viewed just under three million times. With footwork and even body gestures that strongly resemble Jackson, it’s easy to see why.
The crowd can’t get enough
Before long, this boy is completely surrounded by people. They’re all watching him dance. This kid can’t be more than three or four years old and if he’s already this good, he might end up with a successful career in dance and music.
As the song continues to play, the boy follows its lead with new dance steps. The more he dances the bigger the crowd gets. People are blown away that such a small child can perform moves that the King of Pop himself did. This kid has the dance down to fine art.
Sure, a lot of kids like to dance but few are as gifted as this one. He’s so serious, which makes his performance even more special. Kudos to a little boy who appreciates great music.
If you want to see his full performance, check out the video below. His dancing starts around the 1:06 minute marker. It’s definitely worth watching.
