REPORTS of Prince's family SECOND NIGHT of DANCE ON 'TILL DAWN: CELEBRATING THE LIFE, MUSIC & LEGACY OF PRINCE

Prince's family will hold the SECOND of three major events on October 13th to commemorate and honor our beloved Prince.

Hopefully, those of u that are fortunate enough to attend the second night of DANCE ON 'TILL DAWN: THREE NIGHTS CELEBRATING THE LIFE, MUSIC & LEGACY OF PRINCE would post your experience on this thread.

We would love to hear about this historic commemoration being organized by Prince's lovely family.

Thank U!

Who played Drums during Judith Hill segment? Was it Kirky J? And who was the dude that sang Dorothy Parker, Pop Life, Housequake?

Uncertain, who played drums when Judith performed.

Gsharp sang lead on those other songs. He is part of a local Minneapolis band and knew Prince.

The concert closed with an extensive funk jam by The New Power Generation that included It's Gonna Be A Beautiful Night and other songs by Prince & James Brown. This was led by Cassie. She also shared vocals with Judith Hill, Liv Warfield and Marva King on that.

If anyone is interested in sharing your experience of the first night of these three concerts held by Prince's family, there is a sticky thread regarding that night on the "Fan Gatherings" forum.

It would be great if that would be moved to this "Concert Forum" because the performances were amazing.
