Greatness inspired greatness.
"Like so many people I am shocked at the news that Prince has died. In a world of creative performers, Prince was a genius," Jordan said. "His impact not just on music, but on culture, truly can’t be measured. His songs inspired me throughout my career and remind me of so many moments from my life."
Jordan added: "His greatness will live on through his music, but this is a sad day for his fans — me included. My thoughts go out to his family and friends."
Well said, Mike.
Prince's fans around the world will make sure that his legend lives on through his hits.
