The highlight of the night will feature Michael Jackson. Despite a lack of recognition from other major awards shows, the PRN IAM Awards is determined to pay tribute to the legendary King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Even though the iconic singer passed away over a decade ago, his musical legacy lives on. That’s why PRN is planning a special live performance during their ceremony this year to salute Michael Jackson’s immense contribution to pop music and culture.

Rather than have an A-list celebrity perform one of MJ’s hits, PRN has decided to showcase an up-and-coming independent artist covering the classic “Thriller.” This unique tribute will give a talented newcomer a career-making opportunity while also reminding the audience of Michael Jackson’s timeless talent and showmanship. By celebrating “Thriller,” one of the best-selling and most revolutionary albums of all time, PRN hopes to inspire the next generation of boundary-pushing artists.
