Prince

The African American Film Critics Association (AAFCA), in association with Atlanta’s historic Auburn Avenue Research Library will commemorate the cinematic legacy of Prince with a screening of his iconic film, “Purple Rain,” on Sunday, April 30 at 3 p.m. EST.

The event will include the screening followed by a panel discussion that showcases his career in movies. During his lifetime, the iconic entertainer, starred in four films: “Under the Cherry Moon,” “Sign of the Times,” “Graffiti Bridge,” and the highly-lauded “Purple Rain.”

Today marks a year since the passing of Prince and we at WCLK are still mourning the loss of a true icon in music. Prince had the uncanny ability to transcend genre and blur the lines between them all. He was a jazz artist, a rock legend, a soul man and so many other great things. This Saturday 4/22/17, I will be reprising the tribute I did for him last year entitled Atlanta Bliss:Saluting The Legacy Of Prince on The S.O.U.L. Of Jazz from 6-9pm est.

Sheila E. has been very prominent in the world of media after the passing of her dear friend, Prince Rogers Nelson.  She took it to the stage and gave the world an awe-inspiring tribute to him on the 2016 BET Awards, showing us all that she's more relevant than ever.   I was so honored to be able to speak to her on The S.O.U.L. Of Jazz proceeding her appearance at the Atlanta Funk Festival.   She spoke of her upbringing in Oakland, California, growing up in an immensely talented musical family and the influence from her mentor, Prince.
