for joy in jail
This video shows how even in jail, my people is able to transcend the situation and find joy in it. Years ago, the inmates in the Cebu jail uploaded a video where they were choreographed to dance Michael Jackson’s Thriller. It garnered millions of hits because of how people all over have been touched by the fortitude of these Filipino prisoners. Despite their circumstance, they found joy by simply having fun while dancing.
Recently, Travis Payne who was Michael Jackson’s assistant director and choreographer for his supposedly last concert (“This Is It”) went to Cebu to teach dance and make a video with the same inmates. He said nothing but positive encouragement for the Filipino inmates.
