Michael and Idol Pals perform at Hard Rock Hotel Launch Party 03/15/2012

Date March 18, 2012




Performing for the Hard Rock Hotel launch Party in downtown Toronto, Michael and his pals Blake Lewis, Matt Giraud, Tim Urban and Didi Benami thoroughly entertained the guests!

MJ rocked Proud Mary which was the perfect choice to get everyone going! The atmosphere was electric as soon as MJ started to sing…a great way to start it off! He also performed Free Falling, To Love Somebody, Benny And The Jets (group song) and rocked the hell out of We Are The Champions! I am always struck at how beautiful and powerful his voice is and what a gift MJ has for engaging the audience. ROCKSTAR!!

Barney, Bob The Builder, Angelina Ballerina and Thomas The Tank Enginer were on hand and Angelina and Barney both took a small spin with MJ during Champs! 🙂

Matt, Blake, Didi and Tim were great and Hard Rock was treated to some fabulous talent from them too!

Correction here: (it was very loud and hard to hear) Some great news from Michael was that he was in the UK earlier in March arranging shows for both Wimbledon and The Olympics with the Bryans! The other is that he is scheduled to open and perform a duet with Tony Bennett at one of his shows and he will be at Muhammad Ali’s Fight Night later this month so stay tuned when we should have more exciting details!

    Hello, dear Michael ! Why are you in a hurry to be in your late 40-s instead of to stay in your early 30-s ? Hair cut and shaving immediately… please…
