They also performed another MJ song, “Ben/Billy Jean medley,”“Feeling Hot Hot Hot,” and the Finale music “Mabuhi.”

The visitors then went to the CPDRC grounds for a rare photo opportunity with the dancing inmates.
The group also visited provincial history keeper, Museo Sugbo, which formerly served as the provincial jail of Cebu. (XSA)
