Prince and Michael Jackson can add one more thing to their list of similarities: The same singer was with them right before they died. Eerie, right?
Her name? Judith Hill. The 32-year-old singer–who competed on the fourth season of The Voice–was with Prince the night his plane emergency landed in Moline, Illinois after he overdosed on Percocet.
In an interview with The New York Times, Hill reveals she was chatting with Prince when “his eyes fixed,” and then he “nodded off.” Had Hill not just been making deep eye contact with Prince, she would’ve thought he simply fell asleep.
Thankfully, she did notice something was wrong, and she immediately found Prince’s assistant and the pilot, who landed the plane. Prince tragically died six days later after he overdosed on Fentanyl.
Hill’s account of what happened that night (which is available in full here) is chilling, but even more spooky is the fact she was also with Jackson days before he passed away in 2009.
TMZ pointed out that Hill rehearsed with the King of Pop before his untimely passing on June 25, 2009. She even sang a duet with Jackson in his 2009 tour documentary Michael Jackson’s This Is It. Watch the now-haunting footage below. Coincidence?
