Prince Jackson can't moonwalk like his late dad Michael Jackson.

The 20-year-old student inherited a love of music from his pop legend father, who tragically died in June 2009 at the age of 50 when Prince was just 12.

Prince is working in the music business as a video music producer and he insists it was never an option for him to try to become a singer because he shares known of his father's incredible singing and dancing talents, and despite his best efforts he can't even mimic Michael's famous moonwalk dancefloor glide which he unveiled during a performance of 'Billie Jean' at the 'Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever' TV special in 1983.

In an interview on UK TV show 'This Morning' on Monday (04.09.17), Prince admitted: "I can't sing, I can't dance, I can't do any of that. I tried to do the moonwalk and it's embarrassing."

Although he cannot carry on his dad's pop legacy, Prince is trying to continue his humanitarian work and has launched the Heal Los Angeles charity - inspired by Michael 1992's song and life-long aim to improve the lives of disadvantaged children - with the goal to help kids from impoverished backgrounds or who have been victims of abuse in the American city.

Prince was motivated to start the organisation because his father always taught him and his siblings,19-year-old sister Paris and 15-year-old brother Blanket, to help others.

He explained: "My dad really wanted to heal the world. In almost all of his songs there's a universal message of equality, unity and help ... I think he would be proud of the actions that me and my sister have done, and I'm sure he'll be proud of whatever my brother decides to do in his endeavours."

Prince's commitment to helping others has helped him be able to comfort Michael's fans who always want to share the grief they felt when the 'Thriller' hitmaker passed away when they meet him.

He said: "I've had a lot of people tell me, 'When your dad died, I was so grief stricken, I was crying, I was a mess, it took me a good couple of months to get over it.' I think people don't really realise that they are speaking to his kids. He was such a big popular icon that a lot of people shared in the grief. My dad raised to really be comforting to other people, to put them before yourself so we just get on and talk to people about their loss."
