PURPLE RAIN : The Prince Discography Tribute Video Series

DEARLY BELOVED...

This is a celebration of the life & work of Prince Rogers Nelson. Out of respect 4 the man, we DO NOT play his music in the video itself. U will B instructed when 2 play the songs but must provide your own tunes. So dust off all the Purple vinyl & throw that wax on the turntable. U never know where the adventure might take U.

4 example: can U imagine being quoted in Newsweek debating Prince samples with Questlove of The Roots just because ur a passionate fan?

Well it happened to me. :)

LIKE PRINCE TRIBUTES? THERE'S NO SHORTAGE OUT THERE!

GRATITUDE

Thanks to all of you good people who take the time to comment. Videos of this magnitude take days, sometimes weeks to research & perform and those who take 30 seconds to give some supportive feedback are the ones who motivate us to do it all over again for the next album but it doesn't stop there. Like Prince, I have high expectations of my audience and expect them to SHARE this with the world. Not for me or for 'Likes' but to spread the word on the genius of Prince. To show people who might not otherwise realize it, that he mattered. A artist in every sense of the word who we purple people will never forget.
