BTBuzz: Boy with dance moves gets gift from cop
Greenville Police Officer Kawain Harrison was responding to a call in a local South Carolina neighborhood when he noticed 12-year-old Javon Dendy dancing.
Harrison pulled over and filmed Javon dancing to Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” in front of his patrol car.
When he got back to the station, the Greenville Police Department posted the video online where it soon went viral, getting over 700,000 views.
After the video was posted, Harrison couldn’t help but continue thinking about Javon and his talent. A week later they met back up; this time Harrison and his wife came with a surprise package.
Javon opened the package and froze with excitement.
Inside the box was a black hat, aviator sunglasses, white sequin gloves, and a red-and-black leather jacket – a replica of Michael Jackson’s famous jacket worn in the “Thriller” music video.
Javon had the talent, and now he has the outfit he had dreamed about, CBS affiliate WSPA reports.
As Javon began to tear up, Harrison came over and hugged him.
A local dance school noticed the video of the boy dancing and reached out to help fulfill another one of his dreams – dance lessons. Javon wants to be a singer and dancer. The Southern Elite Dance Company in Spartanburg, South Carolina, offered him a full dance scholarship for this upcoming fall, CBS News reported.
