Always try to take control of your worth....


Thank you for the wonderful memories.. you will be missed.. #RIPPrince .. πŸ˜žπŸ’”πŸ™πŸΌ
"If you don’t own your masters, your master owns you." Always try to take control of your worth. #PrinceGoneTooSoon
Thousands of years from now the world will still know that Prince was here. #prince #ripprince #icon #legend 

From Tyler Perry:
About 12 years ago, I was playing the Kodak Theater in LA. I was on my way to the theater when my phone rang. I answered and heard a voice that almost made me wreck the car. The voice said, "I hear you're doing a bit of Purple Rain in your show. Do it again and I'm going to sue you... and I need 10 tickets and I'll be there tonight.” Click. I freaked out. PRINCE HAD CALLED ME!!!

So that night I waited at the backstage door for him to arrive. I was nervous and hoping he didn't get out of the car with 9 lawyers… lol. The limo pulls up and there he was. He got out smiling and laughing. I knew then he was joking (kinda). One of the first things he said was that he was a fan of mine. That blew me away. "Prince WHAT?” I thought. Can you say mind numbing?! Anyway, we chatted for a while, but time seemed to fly by. Soon enough, I had to get dressed and start the show.

During the play I would glance at him, and he seemed to be having an awesome time. Man! Prince was watching me perform!! And enjoying it!

Then we got to the part in the play where I had been doing a few lines of Purple Rain. I stopped and looked at him sitting in the audience. We made eye contact and he nodded to me. So, I queued the band to start playing Purple Rain and had someone bring Prince the microphone in the audience... BIG MISTAKE! He started to sing Purple Rain and the audience went CRAZY! I had never heard that kind of roar from a crowd before. 3400 people losing their minds!! He sang one verse and the audience was blown away. There was a standing ovation for him AT MY SHOW...lol. He was done singing and the audience wouldn't stop applauding him. I still had 20 minutes to go before MY show was over. I knew at that moment that I had just been educated by royalty!! The lesson: never give your microphone to a legend at your show!!! LOL

On the rare occasion that I had the privilege to spend some private time with him, I always new I was in the presence of someone special, someone incredible, someone brilliant. Whether we were at the White House or standing in his kitchen talking, he was consistently an icon! Whether I was in a crowd of thousands watching him perform or one of the handful in his basement listening to him sing for hours, he was always consistent, always royal, always a legend, always Prince.

KING: NPR Music Field Recordings






Vocals + Keys = Supernatural sound!!!

(via https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fBtw1MOG8Es)

On a steamy morning upstairs in a record lover’s paradise KING laid down a gorgeous version of one of the songs that lit up Twitter three years ago and put the trio on Prince’s radar. Sisters Paris and Amber Strother and partner Anita Bias couldn’t believe it when he asked to meet them, but now they think nothing of calling up the legend while they work on their first full-length album.

Everyone involved was in New Orleans to play the Essence Music Festival, which Prince headlined. But away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, out of the shadow of the Superdome, KING put on a different type of show. While customers quietly thumbed through LPs — then stopped to stare — the singers gently and precisely intertwined their three voices in service of a love song. –FRANNIE KELLEY
