When the inmates heard about Jackson death on Thursday, they decided to organize a performance as a final tribute to the musical genius. More then 1,500 prisoners of the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center participated in the final event. Most of which are servings up to more then 10 years for murder, rape, and drug crimes.
This is one of the great examples of how one person can make such a big impact on the world. “I am really sad, because Michael Jackson is my idol,” said an inmate officials identified as one of the primary dance coaches. “Filipinos are so Westernized and that’s why lots of us loved Michael.”
