Filipino Inmates Make Michael Jackson Tribute
Posted on June 27, 2009
The inmates danced into the wee hours of the morning after hearing of Michael Jackson's death to make the video. The Huffington Post says breaks were taken only to eat or avoid the rain.
After being told of Jackson's death Thursday in Los Angeles, the 1,500 inmates at the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center hit the exercise yard, practicing for nine hours Friday night -- and into the wee hours of Saturday morning -- for the show. They took breaks only to eat or when it rained, said professional choreographer Gwendolyn Lador, hired by the prison to teach the inmates the dance.
"I felt sad because we lost our idol," said inmate Wenjiel Resane, who plays the role of Jackson's girlfriend in the video.
