Revered SA singer and entertainer, Dantanio Goodman, has released his latest solo offering: “Unstoppable”.
The Kimberly-born star, says the song was inspired by the current pandemic, COVID-19, and describes it as “uplifting”.
“I wrote this song because I wanted to inspire everyone during this time of uncertainty. I want to remind everyone out there that everything is going to be alright – eventually,” he shared.
Born to a Gospel-singing family in Kimberly, South Africa, Goodman began singing and dancing at the age of nine, developing a vocal repertoire spanning Pop, R’n’B, Swing, Jazz and Reggae.
He went on to create a diverse career in the entertainment industry including theatrical work, songwriting for contemporary pop stars and the release of two solo albums.
Goodman started singing at local talent contests and was also a member and lead singer of his high school vocal group: Unique Transitions.
After moving to Johannesburg almost 20 years ago, Goodman’s solo career has flourished and created quite a buzz on a national and international levels, especially for his showcase performances as the King of Pop Michael Jackson.
From an early age, Goodman felt an affinity with Michael Jackson and his appreciation of Jackson’s dancing evolved into obsessive practice as he taught himself to emulate every detail of the pop star’s trademark dance style. So good was his imitation that it resulted in his ejection from an amateur dance competition at age 16 because the judges believed him to be of a professional standard.
As a skilled impersonator specialising in Michael Jackson and Sammy Davis Jr., Goodman has travelled the world, including London, USA, South Africa, Bahrain and Kenya, and with Top Gear (Britain), Sun International, and Nedbank being among his corporate clients.
His talents also earned him the honour to meet and perform for Michael Jackson’s older brother, Jermaine Jackson, in Berlin in August 2018.
Unstoppable is available now on all major digital platforms.
