THE world-famous dancing Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC) inmates once again got international attention after they were featured in the 404-page The Official Michael Jackson OPUS.

Considered a definitive book on the “King of Pop,” the book features four pictures of the inmates dancing to the tune of “Thriller.” These photos landed in pages 304 and 305, said Byron Garcia, Capitol consultant on security.

The book contains more than 300 pictures, both rare and unpublished images of Jackson, some taken by famous photographers.

Byron said that with the inclusion of the CPDRC inmates in Jackson’s book, their efforts have paid off.

The book states: “Michael’s fans are as diverse as the population of Earth, from Israeli teenagers to Filipino prison inmates to American soccer mums.”

Garcia, Cebu Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia’s brother, said he was very happy when he was informed that the inmates were included in the book, saying it is something historic.

Byron said the book is already sold out; interested buyers need to pre-order.

Byron also said he is still receiving inquiries from foreign guests who are interested to see the inmates’ performance.

CPDRC inmates’ “Thriller” dance has attracted millions of viewers after Garcia uploaded it to YouTube. (RSA)
