Dominique "Mikette" Wilson: Newark, NJ's First Female Michael Jackson Tribute/Impersonator!
Here's her story:
Dominique Wilson had to be no older than four years old when she discovered her love for Michael Jackson. She remembers watching "The Wiz" and "Moonwalker" listening to his records and watching his music videos on television. The very first dance routine she learned was "Thriller" and that was to help her overcome her fear of the zombies. Then she began teaching herself the moonwalk not too far later at the age of seven.
What inspires her about Michael is that he is a genius in his own right. He dared to be different and whatever he did, he broke down barriers. He has done so much for music and for mankind as well. He inspires her to follow her heart and be true to herself.
For her to be a Tribute Artist is to not only learn his dance moves but to show the world the impact Michael has to make changes and to show love. Being a Tribute Artist is to pay tribute to Michael and promote the same love and spirit he did to the world. Also to show that Michael Jackson will live forever.
December 18, 2011, Dominique "Mikette" Wilson received a Resolution from the city of Newark, NJ for her unwavering and heartfelt commitment to the West Ward within the city of Newark, NJ. She has received a Certificate of Appreciation as well for her participation in the One Ward, One Family Dinner event. She is also acknowledged as being the first female Michael Jackson Tribute/Impersonator in the city and her name, Dominique "Mikette" Wilson will be archived in Newark's history. She has performed in many local events, even at the Greater Newark Conservancy's Fall Block Party and before many elected officials within the city of Newark and one of New Jersey's State Senators Ronald Rice, Sr. In the words of Mikette, "I'm turning Newark, NJ into Newark, MJ!"
