Apparently, The Keepers documents the mysterious disappearance of Sister Catherine "Cathy" Cesnik in 1969 and her subsequent death. Following the success of Making A Murderer and the Amanda Knox documentary, the docuseries promises to give Cesnik's story the same fascinating true crime treatment. It's said the series will highlight the many people the late nun touched, as well as the various secrets and lies that may be connected to her death.

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled on Wednesday since that's the day Netflix plans to drop a trailer for the project. Oh, and they'll also be releasing an interview with documentarian Ryan White too.

The Keepers will drop in full on May 19. Will you be tuning in??

Elton John Headlines Charity Concert Celebrating Life Of Teen

In order to celebrate the live of tragic AIDS victim Ryan White, Elton John will headline a charity concert at Butler University in Indiana.

Ryan got the disease from a contaminated blood transfusion in 1990 and he died at just 18-years-old. Elton held a bedside vigil for him in the last week of his life and even credited the teen for getting the singer back on track.

John said:

"Every time I stopped taking drugs, after a period of time I'd go back. It got worse and worse… What finally opened my eyes was Ryan White.

I read in a magazine that Ryan was not allowed to go to school because he had AIDS. Firebombs were being put in his family's letter box. I was enraged. I helped the White family move. I spent the last week of Ryan's life in 1990 with him in an Indianapolis hospital.

There was something wonderful in this family - they were losing their son, yet they were still able to forgive the hatred of others. I thought, 'Look at me. I have everything I want, and I complain about a hotel room because I don't like the wallpaper? What happened to me? I was a nice, decent boy, and now I'm a self-obsessed drug addict.' So I got sober."

All proceeds from the April 28th concert will be given to the Indianapolis Children's Museum and Elton John's AIDS foundation.

Amazing.
