According to reports, Michael has asked Kenny Ortega to work with him on his ‘This Is It’ concerts which are planned to begin on July 8th.
Kenny is well known to Michael’s fans as he also worked on the ‘Dangerous’ and ‘HIStory’ tours but he is also famous now for his work on ‘High School Musical’.
Last week he auditioned dancers with Michael in Los Angeles.
Kenny said when Michael called him and asked him to work on the show; “My answer without a beat was ‘nothing could keep me away’ – collaborating with Michael on the ‘Dangerous’ and ‘HIStory’ tours were two of the greatest creative experiences of my life, to be invited to partner with him again is a dream come true.
Working with Michael is always a true and full partnership, he is a creative mastermind.
He is the most significant artist and entertainer of our generation.”
Michael, the team and I will hash out a creative idea, we’re ready to implement it and Michael will say let’s sleep on it. The next day he is back in studio raising the bar to the next level and pushing us further for greater dynamic results.”
