Wonder struggled to keep his composure when Anderson Cooper asked if he would perform a Prince song.
“Yeah, I think I would probably break down if I do a song right now,” he said, appearing to choke up. “I’m just glad I was able to say to him ‘I love you’ when I last saw him.”
He also seemed touched by audio of Prince calling the “Superstition” singer as a “role model.”
In another part of the interview, Wonder praised Prince for his versatility: “He could play classical music if he wanted to, he could play jazz if he wanted to , he could play country if he wanted to. He played rock, he played blues…He played everything.”
