THIS IS IT!

I am so excited to blog about this because I am probably the only blogger who has behind the scene shots of the recent Michael Jackson tribute video done by the Cebu inmates!   I am quite sure that if you’re able to read my blog you know what I am talking about!  I mean it has like a gazillion hits on Youtube!

Well now the inmates have gone several levels up by having the choreographer  Travis Payne and principal dancers Dreis Reed and Daniel Celebre teaching them and showing them the moves!    I was so fortunate to actually see the video before it was released, the best part about it were the cool stories and photos that led to this magnificent historical event.

I do hope that you have seen this video as it is really so touching and moving!  It made every single hair on my body tingle!

The whole thing had to be hush-hush.  A very difficult task when you have a cast of a thousand two hundred people.  However I think they were really successful as no one really heard about it.

It was very very hot but the inmates were very professional.

This project was brought to all of you by one of my favorite people in the planet Mr. Ernest Escaler!  He just inspires me with his projects…OPRAH level!!! LOL!

He just sent me these photos for all of us to enjoy!  Spine tingling moment talaga when you watch the video!

Dreis Reid was one of the principal dancers in the movie/docu "This Is It!" He and the team had only 2 days to teach the inmates all the moves.

Cutie pie! Daniel Celebre can make anyone melt! HAAAY!
