Thornton Heath’s musical connections are legendary and now includes Alex Ko who has been starring in the West End hit musical Thriller Live.
KO has toured the world with Thriller Live for the last five years, dazzling audiences as a lead vocalist. He has been back in Thornton Heath for the last year and a half appearing at the Lyric Theatre.
As Michael Jackson is one of KO’s all time favourite idols, he’s always been determined to showcase Michael’s powerful vocals throughout his performance.
KO says about his ‘dream job’: “Being able to present audiences with just a pinch of the magic Michael Jackson gave to the world was a true honour. I never thought when walking into my audition room that this half Chinese, half English Manchester native would end up representing the King of Pop all over the world.
“One of my most proudest moments was being continuously approached
by audience members questioning me on the lack of opportunities for Asian performers in the industry and how me being on that stage has given them hope and drive to push forward with their dreams.”
KO enjoyed performing from a young age creating shows in his living room for family and friends. His first professional job came at the age of 13 performing covers in venues around the UK.
While touring the world with Thriller Live, KO started work on his first solo project culminating in an EP entitled, ‘DIMENSION’ released in 2015.
His music career runs parallel with his successful modelling career working with names such as Nick Knight and Elle MacPherson under the management of MOT Models.
KO has been hard at work in the studio readying a Christmas single: entitled Christmas Wish with is set for release on December 15 on iTunes and Spotify.
