Dan Deacon's App Illuminates The Massive Crowd At A Michael Jackson Cover Band Show

A couple of months ago, we told you about Dan Deacon’s app, designed by Wham City, which allows every smart phone in the crowd to take part in a synchronized light show. Well, it’s beginning to catch on and was recently spotted being implemented at a show that most of us would never admit to attending, even if its very premise guarantees that it would be one hell of a good time.

Yes, everyone loves a Michael Jackson cover band, especially one that can belt out the King of Pop’s hits within a certain range of accuracy. That was the entertainment selected by the Catalyst Conference in Atlanta last month, a “powerful gathering of young leaders, a movement of influencers and world changers who love Jesus, see things differently, and feel a burden for our generation.”

The focus was far from humankind’s burdens during this performance, however, of which several videos recently surfaced, thanks to the compiling efforts of Keith Lea. The crowd participated in massive numbers, waving around their illuminated phones, the faux Michael Jackson encouraging everyone to join in.

And it’s worth noting that this cover band was absolutely plowing through MJ hits, jumping from one to the next in a seemingly never-ending medley of songs by a generation’s greatest pop icon. Wonder if Dan Deacon ever thought he’d be waywardly doing visuals for a packed house Michael Jackson show?

Here’s another video of the action for good measure.
