Jean Walker

  • on: January 14, 2011, 02:15:21 PM
Hi everyone

New here so sorry if it has been mentionned before (i checked but you never know...)

Recently and by accident, I came across a video of a taxi driver singing "Billie Jean".

[youtube:2pl4vx0o]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSb10s_04NY[/youtube:2pl4vx0o]

It's not a look alike, more a "sound alike".

I found it unbelievable so i checked to find other videos or records i could listen to.
Here is his Youtube space with other impressive videos :
http://www.youtube.com/walkerjean

On one of his videos, he sings in front of Joe Jackson (seems to be at a signing event)
I have never heard so far someone with such a similar voice as Michael Jackson.

To be honnest, he's not always perfect in tune, but the voice is really amazing, and only needs a bit of more work i think.
Although, it's a shame it's not recorded as good as it could be.

 If someone here speaks portugese, maybe it's possible to learn more about this person.

Anyway, i'm REALLY impressed.

What do you think?
N.

Don't cross his way, He's part of the plan

Your true character is how you act when no one is looking.

Check out the 'Sony' hat...Let the conspiracy ideas roll!

Let me add this guy is a good impersonator, but he doesn't have that 'umph' Michael possesses. While I admire his efforts, they're a bit forced whereas Michael is naturally soulful, and Walker's natural accent is very noticeable (it'd be hard to hide that). All in all, he's a good 9.99 on the 1-10 scale. A+ for effort, dude! I do believe he'd impress the man himself!
