Welcome To America With Prince

During Prince's 2011 Welcome 2 America Tour, during some performances Misty Copeland joined him onstage. The legendary musician was so impressed with Ms. Copeland that he ended up donating $250,000 to ABT. In turn, Misty Copeland said that she was inspired by Prince and learned how to focus on herself, her talent and that the sky is the limit in all things. It was definitely one of the most unique and inspirational pairing in performing arts history.
