GREENVILLE CO., SC (WSPA) - Just days after 12-year-old Javon Dendy went viral for showing off his impressive Michael Jackson moves, the Greenville police officer who discovered him gave him a surprise gift.
Last weekend, Greenville County Police Department Officer Kawain Harrison noticed Dendy dancing during a service call and recorded a short video. After he uploaded it to Facebook, the video quickly went viral, and now has over 500,000 views.
One of the things Dendy had mentioned to Officer Harrison when they met was his wish to wear a jacket like the one Michael Jackson wears in his “Thriller” music video. On Monday June 25th, which was coincidentally the 9th anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death, Harrison surprised Dendy with the “Thriller” jacket.
Dendy says he wants to become a dancer and singer. Southern Elite Dance Company in Spartanburg has since reached out to Dendy to offer him a full dancing scholarship this Fall.
