On Friday, April 21, 2017, marks 1 year since the greatest to EVER do it passed away. Prince Rogers Nelson left us but left us his magic that we can live with forever. At Philly Loves Prince, we'll celebrate him through his music, film, videos, art and so much more. I'm planning a very special night and would love for you to save the date to be in attendance. Stay tuned by signing up for my email list or by joining the Facebook event.
In the meantime, please enjoy the entire night of music from Purple Vibes - the 5 hour night we produced the night after Prince passed away. DJ's Cosmo Baker, Mr. Sonny James and Lean Wit It poured their heart and souls into that night. It was bittersweet.
My cameo! I'm dying. This is theeeeeeeeeee best.
These were 3 of the greatest nights of my life! I lived on 2nd and Girard, Mike and I were chilling on my couch and Ahmir calls... Next thing you know, i'm at The Sofitel picking up Prince's assistants to go look at venues! I literally spent 3 nights in Tragos [chosen venue] with Prince, Mayte, India Arie, Jerome, Quest, Mike and 5 of my friends, lol. It was bazaar and surreal and incredibly amazing.
My Mom had bought me front row tickets for my birthday and Prince's team gave me tix for the 2nd 2 nights. I remember on the 3rd and final night, Patti Labelle came out and performed with Prince. Amazing. After the concert, when we were at the party, Prince requested to see that footage of the show, of him and Patti... No problem. Put it on, standing watching. Next thing you know, I realize I am standing next to Prince, watching Prince. GAH! If you know me, you know that this is the ULTIMATE. Like you have no idea. The man had on wedge flip flops. I saw his toes! Lol. Really, just amazing.
Thanks Okayplayer and Ahmir Khalib Thompson [and Happy Birthday] for the amazing memory and forever immortalizing me and Mike Nyce in this EPIC video.
When it comes to long-awaited, it doesn’t get much more long-awaited than new music from Michael D'Angelo Archer, better known as D’Angelo. Think Chinese Democracy level long-awaited. Detox level long-awaited, even. So, without further ado: here’s the full, official studio version of ‘Sugah Daddy’, a song that soul music’s ever-elusive prodigal son and his new band, The Vanguard, first played live on their celebrated 2012 tour. Welcome back, D.
