Prince has reportedly released a cover of Christian musician Nichole Nordeman’s song “What If.” According to Christian Today, Prince, who became a Jehovah’s Witness in 2001, debuted the song on a Louisville radio station to promote his upcoming Hit & Run tour. 


The Christian song includes the following lyrics: 


"What if He takes His place in history with all the prophets and the kings

who taught us love and came in peace, but then the story ends?

What then?

But what if you're wrong?

What if there's more?

What if there's hope you've never dreamed of hoping for?"


Nordeman responded to the cover with praise, writing on social media that she was honored Prince selected her song. 


"I don't really have the appropriate words for what an honor this is. If you are a musician on any level, you will immediately absorb the weight of it. This man's talent is otherworldly. What's the non-musical equivalent? Tiger Woods asking to borrow your clubs? Neil Armstrong calling and asking if you'd like to take a walk?" she wrote on Facebook. 


Nordeman also expressed her gratitude that Prince’s song on mainstream radio will send the Christian message to a new audience. 


"Far too often Christian radio is accused of existing solely to preach to the choir. Solely for the minivan driving mother of three who wants a safe listening choice for her family. But Prince heard a song about the transforming love of Jesus on Christian radio and now has given it a much wider audience than I ever did or could,” she wrote.
