A MOONWALKING mail man whose Billie Jean routine has raised hundreds of pounds for charity has vowed to carry on dancing in memory of Michael Jackson.
Mike Izzard, aged 36, who delivers post to Bricket Wood, filmed his Billie Jean dance at the end of May at the Royal Mail delivery office in Brick Knoll Park and sold copies of the DVD to friends and family, collecting over �500 for his favourite charity, the RSPCA.
Mike, who had tickets to see Michael Jackson at the O2 arena, said that he was "heartbroken" when he heard about the singer's heart attack: "I still haven't got over the shock; Michael Jackson was my idol and I wore my bedroom carpet thin dancing to his music from the age of 10 onwards."
Mike, who lives in Hemel Hempstead, said that he would donate the money he gets back from his concert tickets to one of the charities that Michael Jackson supported.
He added: "As a keen charity donator himself, I think Michael Jackson would've been pleased that people like me are using his music to raise money for charity. I'm definitely going to keep up the MJ moves and perhaps I'll think about another routine for a tribute."
