This is Pretty Awesome

The Dancing Inmates of CPDRC ~ This Is It

These inmates (1,500 strong) of maximum security prison, Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Centre, in the Philippines, made web history on June 27, 2009. On hearing about the death of Michael Jackson, they put together the tribute, shown in the vid below, in 10 hours.

They've come a long way. Costumed and choreographed these same inmates perform "They Don't Care About Us" from Michael Jackson's This Is It" documentary. I'm thinking that this is a great way to rehabilitate!

I'm sorry that your Mom is gone darling. No matter how they go or when they go it is too soon isn't it.

I think I remember seeing one version or another awhile back--haha! Michael Jackson for all situations, I say! ;)

Wow! I really enjoyed that. I agree this is a great way to rehabilitate. music is magical and so was MJ. These guys did great and the dancing was pretty impressive.
