Prince may not be blessing us with his earthly presence anymore, but one thing is for sure. He colored the world purple.
In the eerie way that time flies by, the one-year anniversary of The Purple One’s passing is coming up on April 21 and commemorative celebrations are taking place throughout the week. Kicking things off is the three-day celebration at the new rehabilitated Paisley Park featuring a series of panel discussions, tours and memorable performances.
For those of us not in Minnesota to enjoy the firsthand celebrations, FM and Fuse TV will offer a series of content.
“The Prince Effect,” premiering on FM, features interviews from DJ BenHaMeen, oral historian Zaheer Ali and vinyl enthusiast Tasha Digital. The half-hour special will also dive into Prince’s “unparalleled impact” on music along with his innovative way of thinking and fearlessness when it came to pushing the culture forward.
Over at Fuse TV, the celebration dives right into his musical genius. Ahead of the “Prince Effect”, viewers will take a trip down memory lane with #WeMissYouPrince, a series highlighting a variety of iconic music videos from the legendary musician such as “Little Red Corvette”, “Diamonds and Pearls”, When Doves Cry” and the signature “Purple Rain.”
Check out the exclusive first / teaser clip at EBONY.
“The Prince Effect” premieres April 21 at 9:00 pm ET and #WeMissYouPrince airs Friday, April 21 from 8:30am-12:30pm on Fuse and 8:00-9:00pm on FM.
