Jacko Impersonator Making A Killing

DENVER (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Michael Jackson’s death has caused business to boom for one identical impersonator.

Carlo Riley is a lifelong Jackson fan who bears an uncanny resemblance to the King Of Pop and sings and dances in his likeness.

Since Jackson’s passing, Riley has been booked for gigs all over the world, from Alaska and Hawaii to Africa and Korea.

He feels it’s his duty now more than ever to carry on Michael’s legacy and perform for fans who’ll never get to see the real Jackson.

Riley takes his hobby seriously and spends about an hour caking on makeup and wigs to perfect Jackson’s look.

He owns more than 100 MJ-inspired outfits and in the last year has spent $3,500 on rhinestones alone.

He even brings security with him to events to protect him from overzealous fans, but loves the admiration.

If business remains good, Riley may make impersonating his full-time job, though he’d give it all up just to have his idol back.
