Meanwhile, Michael’s eldest son, 22-year-old Prince recently reflected on his dad’s legendary music career, and admitted that, despite finding it difficult to choose a stand-out track, he does have his favourites.
He added: “One of my favourite songs… is Man in the Mirror because it’s such a great call to action, you know, everybody can get behind. It is like, ‘If you really want to make a change for the world, you need to change yourself first and you need to really look within and see yourself for who you actually are’.”
