Michael Jackson is the King of Pop and The Greatest Artist of All Time. He was more than just a pop star—he was a legend and was so loved by the world that it seemingly stopped spinning on its axis when it learned of his death. It was not just his music that people loved. He was fun, dynamic, talented, and admirable in his humanitarian and philanthropic efforts. In the years after his death, many had tried to emulate the Legend, but not many had been able to capture his essence as Jobel Star does.
Jobel Star is a high-energy artist dedicated to performing classic tributes to the King of Pop. The artist has built a reputation upon the strong foundation of his unique voice, as he sings each track live with no pre-recorded vocals. He adapts the same vocal techniques and scales as he received training from the same vocal coach. “I want to keep Michael Jackson alive in spirit,” he says, “I am not an impersonator. I am a recording artist and tribute artist making my way to the top with my combined sound.”
While the tribute artist keeps himself distinct from the Legend he is keen on reviving; it is as if he was born under the same star. There are so many similarities that even he finds it eerie: both have exceptional piano skills, share the same purpose in life, their mothers and fathers were both similarly named, and they were both choreographed by Travis Payne.
The most significant similarity they share is that both have hearts of gold. Just as the King of Pop had held several causes dear, Jobel Star is doing the same. Mainly, child abuse and drug abuse are two causes that he has been very passionate about. In addition, he is very keen on uniting the world through music. Music is one thing that can connect all people of all cultures, and Jobel Star wants to bring peace with it.
Save Our World Infinity is a song especially written to tug at the heartstrings of people and spur them to act against the injustices of the world. No matter the political affiliation, religion, and personal beliefs, there is love in the hearts of every person. “I am singing to that love deep down inside all of us,” he says with ideological conviction, “on the day that we can fully trust each other, there will be love on earth.”
The year 2020 may have brought many hardships that had people feeling hopeless, but Jobel Star never fails to remind people to look at the bright side. “Things are going to get better in 2021,” the star says enthusiastically, “Michael Jackson was the epitome of hope, and we have to believe that he is here, alive in spirit.”
Bringing joy into the homes and hearts of people all over the world was something that the King of Pop did naturally, which is why the world was devastated when he died. He leaves his legacy in the form of Jobel Star, whose rising presence in the entertainment industry means the dearly departed star’s inevitable return to pop culture.
