Talk about a sweet hookup!
Yesterday, Prince William and Kate Middleton continued their tour of New York City by hitting up The Door, an educational center that provides support for disadvantaged youth.

The royal duo were treated to a show where young men and women performed hip-hop themed song and dance numbers. However, there was one performance in particular that took them by storm!
After Scott Prescod performed a piece inspired by his father's incarceration, the future King of England was so blown away by his "powerful, moving" piece that he actually gave him his phone number!
The young artist recounts:
"William said he wanted to help me put this together. He gave me his contact number and said to reach out to him."
Wowza! If Your Highness can't get you your own show, no one can!
Prescod never believed someone of the Prince's caliber would ever watch his performance.
"I had a low period in my life and never in a million years did I expect I would be performing for the Duke and Duchess."
But to be fair, England's most talked about couple enjoyed them all. According to The Door's Julie Shapiro, William and Kate were impressed with the "great confidence" exhibited by all the youth.
Note to all struggling artists of the world: never give up! One day, you might get the chance to perform in front of royalty!
