CEBU CITY, Philippines, Jan. 26 (UPI) -- Michael Jackson's long-time choreographer said about 1,500 prisoners in the Philippines performed a dance for the DVD release of the documentary "This Is It."

Travis Payne said the prisoners at the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center performed a dance routine to "The Drill," the final song Payne collaborated with Jackson on before his death June 25, GMANews.tv reported Tuesday.

Payne said the footage of the dance, which has been uploaded to YouTube, will appear on the DVD and Blu-Ray releases of "This Is It," a documentary made from footage shot last year while the King of Pop was preparing for a series of 50 concerts in London.

"It is a wonderful partnership in just spreading love and peace. I think that with Jackson at the center of everything. It is really a blessing to be here," Payne said.
