Understand, your average Michael Jackson fan might have to make a trip to the ER (or at the very least, to a chiropractor) if they tried to dance like him. But Willie pulls it off with a combination of confidence and genuine showmanship.

One particular performance by Willie has gone super viral–  his performance at a New Year’s Eve celebration at a Family Christian Center. You can tell from the loud cheers that the crowd really appreciated Willie’s interpretation of the classic “Black or White.”
