The Póvoa family from Brazil

“Hi! My name is José Jackson Down, I’m 22 years old, I’m from Rio de Janeiro – BRAZIL.

I’ve done a little bit of everything, I was a helper in a mechanic shop, I sold perfume, I was a councilor and currently I dedicate myself to the performance of the King of Pop Michael Jackson.

I am very proud of my Parents and family.

My biggest challenge is to set up a SHOW with dancers.”
