I have loved Prince since I was a little girl; I was at the precipice of my “mental awakening” to the world around me, it was this man who entered my world at the very moment my young mind was opening up to the concept of my universe; my surroundings. All humans go through this;

On February 9, 2017, we were informed of the deal between UMPG and Prince’s estate.
