ASIAN HIP HOP TIMES
Sunday, June 28, 2009
The Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC), a maximum security prison in Cebu, Philippines have released a video dance tribute yesterday to the late Michael Jackson (may he rest in peace!). The CPDRC inmates are critically-acclaimed for making dance videos of popular songs and posting them on YouTube. I think their dances are a very cool thing because it helps the inmates beat the prison blues while they are serving time in prison. The YouTube description of their latest tribute to Michael Jackson says that this dance was completed 10 hours after receiving word of the King of Pop's passing. The songs they have done in order was: Ben, I'll Be There and finally We Are The World, a song that Michael Jackson co-wrote along with Lionel Richie. Choosing We Are The World as the last song for the tribute and waving around the many different flags of the world was a very nice touch. I was very moved by their performance.
Here is the video that brought the CPDRC inmates international fame. It's a performance of Michael Jackson's Thriller. This video has over 26,000,0000 hits to this day!!
