Shortly after the tragic news went public, Aladdin composer Alan Menken gave Billboard a statement on his reaction to Williams' death:

"If I had only watched Robin Williams on the TV screen, in the movies or on stage, I would consider myself blessed for having simply experienced his brilliance, his joy, his humor and his heart. The fact that I had the honor of sharing the creative process with him is an honor and a privilege that I will cherish for the rest of my life."
