Prince Michael Jackson speaks out on following in late father's footsteps

Prince Michael Jackson, the son of the legendary late singer Michael Jackson, is opening up about the charity work he does in his father's memory.

"As we were growing up my dad always said, 'I really don't care what you do in life, as long as you're happy doing it and you're the best at what you do. If you want to be a janitor at a high school, you should be the best janitor that you can be,'" Jackson said today on “GMA.”

"So, I think that he would always be the supporting figure to me and my siblings and support us in all the endeavors that we try," he added.

Prince Michael Jackson, 20, is currently a student at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles where he co-founded the charitable student organization "Heal Los Angeles."
