It also touches on a love relationship that GordyJr. and Diana Ross developed.
The Charismatic ten year old, who was the youngest in the cast, was known for his mesmerizing moves and uncanning vocals of the iconic young MJ. According to comments left on his facebook fan page, fans and show-goers often left comments about how they thought they were transported back in time and thought the King of Pop , had somehow come back to life on the stage.
When asked of Kaleb what is next? He eargly said, " I want to change the face of Hollywood."
Kaleb, admits that competition is steep in this business but he is not worried. He feels that hard work, dedication to your craft, manners, a love for what you do and a non-entitlement attitude will set him apart.
Kaleb says, "He is tired of Hollywood hiring kid talent, that portray bad behavior and want the rest of us to think of them as "mentors." They aren't mentors to young kids, when they are out getting in to trouble and setting bad examples. "Hollywood!!!" he screams!! "There are to many up and coming talent who want the job and will honor their craft and status. We are losing my generation to drugs, suicide, and poor judgements. These kids grow up to be adults that continue to have these problems and carry them into relationships that (eventually) effect kids like me. I know Hollywood wants to use a name that they think will sell their movies, tv shows, films or records but "come on", it is so much "good talent" out there, that I don't think Hollywood would be compromising.
"Try me Hollywood," Try me; says the "adorable" Kaleb. Oh, and I have friends who are talented also, he laughs.
