Listen to Alibaba’s CEO croon out some sweet tunes at a music festival
Imagine Jeff Bezos crashing a Justin Timberlake performance at Coachella, grabbing a mic, and joining Justin in a duet of “Mirrors.”
That’s basically what happened at the Yunqi Music Festival in China on Wednesday. Business Insider reported that Billionaire Alibaba CEO Jack Ma crashed singer Li Jian’s set with a microphone in hand. Ma then joined Li Jian in a duet of the singer’s hit song “Legend.”
Jack Ma came ready to party like a rock star. He performed wearing sunglasses and a jean jacket with a sick popped collar. And yes there is video.
The festival was part of a computing conference sponsored by Alibaba, so we guess Ma had a legit reason to be there.
But this isn’t the first time that the CEO’s actions indicate that he maybe regrets not going into a career in showbiz. In September, Ma rode in to his company’s 18th birthday celebration on a motorcycle dressed like Michael Jackson. And then, ya know, did a little dance.
Alibaba is an e-commerce company that’s considered the Amazon of China. CEO Jack Ma is currently worth $39.3 billion USD.
