High schooler who sounds just like Michael Jackson steals the show in viral video
Could we have another legend in our midst? Although there are many Michael Jackson impersonators who try and copy his look, dance moves, and even his voice, not many can get all three perfectly. However, this Florida teenager seems to be setting the standard for it.
Ezekiel Hargrove is a student at Port Charlotte High School in Florida, and he recently went viral after his friend tweeted a video of him singing in the hallway. While he really records himself singing some Michael Jackson covers, it was this hallway video that made him go viral, garnering thousands of fans overnight.
In the clip, he sings a medley of the King of Pop's songs while dancing in front of his fellow students. While this could be a perfectly normal scenario, what made everything amazing was that he sounded just like Michael's studio recordings.
After going viral, another video of him singing "You Are Not Alone" started to gain some popularity, as this is where you really hear his voice. It seems he has become popular in his school, as the third video of him performing in class while his teacher supported him went viral as well.

According to Ezekiel's social media accounts, music is really his passion and he hopes to pursue it. In his YouTube channel, he has uploaded a handful of covers, including him singing "I'll Make Love To You" by Boyz II Men, "Human Nature" by Michael Jackson, and "Let Me Love You" by Mario.

He definitely has a future in music, and it comes with no surprise that he has his entire school cheering him on and backing him up because even they know that his talent will take him places one day. It's great for the young man that he has gone viral because then it would be easier for him to get some added support whenever he needs it, and use this as motivation to keep doing what he loves.
