British singing sensation Shaheen Jafargholi is about to take America by storm after performing at the Michael Jackson memorial tribute.

The Britain’s Got Talent star has just inked a deal with major agents CAA whose clients include Brad Pitt, Will Smith and George Clooney.

Jafargholi, 12, moved hundreds of millions of viewers at Jackson’s memorial by singing Who’s Lovin You in tribute to The King Of Pop who died unexpectedly on June 25, 2009.

And now requests have been flooding in for him to appear and the mega-agents have put their weight behind his career push.

“He has had meetings with the Nickelodeon TV channel and Disney lined-up – they are looking at finding a role for him in their new High School Musical and Hannah Montana style shows. Producer director Kenny Ortega is involved in both and was the man behind the Jackson memorial, he loves Shaheen,” a source told the UK Sun newspaper.

American Idol guru Simon Cowell is also being tipped to offer the young performer a record deal in the UK because he has been so impressed with his performances.

The King Of Pop had invited him to support him during his ill fated O2 concerts in London after seeing clips of him perform during Britain’s Got Talent.

Jackson would have handed a torch to Jafargholi during the O2 concerts to signify the passing of knowledge to a new generation had he not passed away last month.

Jafargholi also raised his profile by appearing on Larry King after the memorial service at which he met superstars like Stevie Wonder, Mariah Carey and Lionel Ritchie back stage.
