Malinda Williams is an elementary school teacher in Los Angeles who knows how to always bring the best out of her students. She also loves to have fun, so when an opportunity came up at Baldwin Hills Elementary, she knew she had to take it right away.

Williams is a huge fan of Motown artists like the Jackson 5 and The Supremes, and she wanted to bring this same love of music to her students. That’s why she organized a talent show in which her kids could dance and sing along to these classic songs that we all know and love.

Williams put together the musical event of the year called “The Sounds of Motown.” She spent weeks helping the children to dance, sing, and get their costumes.

Though she loved all the performances, Williams especially liked the students who danced to “I Want You Back” by the Jackson 5. In the video below, you’ll see that the boys look just like Michael Jackson and his brothers as they take the stage!

The boys ended up leaving the crowd speechless with their brilliant performance! Video of the performance has gone viral, as people all over the world can’t get enough of it!

“Jelani, Eugene, Ryan, Anthony, and Jalen paying tribute to The Jackson Five! Choreography by Malinda Williams,” the video description reads.

“Made me so happy watching this. These kids are awesome!” one social media user commented.

“Once in a while, something comes across this mega social media world that just makes you stop and smile,” another added. “Thanks to a great group of kids and teachers I have now wasted a wonderful 20 minutes or so just smiling and remembering these tunes from my childhood. So much work put into this production is incredible. Thanks again.”

We applaud Williams for doing such an amazing job helping her students to put this show together! Check out the video below, and SHARE this story so your friends and family can see this as well!
