Starting with the woman in the mirror? Pop star Cleo Higgins will make her West End debut in Thriller – Live, the tribute concert featuring the songs of Michael Jackson and The Jackson 5. Higgins will begin performances on June 24, direct from touring the U.K. and Europe. Helmed and choreographed by Gary Lloyd, the MJ celebration is currently playing at the Lyric Theatre, where it opened in 2009.
Higgins, the lead singer of the 90s pop group Cleopatra, was signed to Madonna’s Maverick lavel at the age of 13. Last year, she auditioned for the U.K.’s The Voice and landed a spot in the semi finals. She also starred in the TV series Comin’ Atcha!, which was loosely based on her time as a member of Cleopatra.
Thriller – Live celebrates the career of the world’s greatest entertainer and undisputed King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Among the songs featured in the show are “I Want You Back,” “I’ll Be There,” “ABC,” “Man in the Mirror,” “Billie Jean,” and many more. To bring life to such hits, Thriller – Live includes video footage combined with choreography.
