"Prince defied the odds. A black teen from Minneapolis with a goal to electrify the world. He had the courage to be different. With his vision, and God-given talent, he is STILL one of the world's most respected and loved artists. What he told me, was that he wanted to be known as the world's most prolific songwriter. And with 984 titles to his credit and counting, he has done just that. In the words of Prince, 'With love, honor, and respect for every living thing in the universe, separation ceases. And we all become one being, singing one song.' On behalf of Prince, our wonderful friend, teacher and brother - I humbly accept this award. And me, my brother Omar, my brother Alfred, my sister Sharon, my sister Noreen, and my brother John, we'll keep this for you at Paisley Park. Until we see you again, this is for you."

It made me cry too. I'm glad she cried. At first it sounded like she was giving sermon
I asked Prince what he was planning to do. He told me , I'm going to look for the ladder. I asked him what that meant. All he said was, sometimes it snows in April. - book D.M.S.R.

Got the tears flowing here again too. Tears of joy and pride, but also sadness at being reminded we only have the past now. There will be no more P sightings to get giddy over, no new P events to get ticket's to, no new tweets from PRN to watch for. Life got a bit duller after P left this world.
Pull your cellphone out and call your next of kin, it's about to get funky in here!

I just watched Tyka accept the award on behalf of Prince. The tears are flowing again- but they are tears of happiness. Happiness because the world has not forgotten our beloved Prince. What Tyka said, heck, HOW she said it, made my heart ache again. I think she truly loved her brother. Did I hear correctly that this is the third time that Purple Rain has won this award? Wow!

I loved everything she had to say. Very heartfelt and I appreciated how she used Prince's own words in her speech.

I will admit that I'm disappointed that the AMAs didn't doing any sort of special tribute though. sad I know it's the AMAs but I found that upsetting. I didn't want any artists to sing his songs (as that never works out properly) but some video clips of him performing/speaking would have been much appreciated. Were any of you surprised they didn't do ANYTHING?

I don't mean to hijack the thread. I just was quite upset, though maybe I shouldn't have expected anything to begin with. sad

Admission is easy, just say you believe and come to this place in your heart... <3

^^^^Perhaps Bruno and The Time will perform a Prince Grammy tribute. Especially since Jimmy Jam was working board member at one time.

WELL DESERVED!!

It sucks living in the UK though as I couldn't see this as it was early hours of the morning over here so I'm having to catch up on Twitter sad


I think Tyka Nelson did a great job accepting the award on behalf of Prince but I kinda hoped The Revolution had been invited as they were an integral part of this album.

After watching Tyka speak, the realness of the situation becomes so much more painful. Kudos to her for holding it together at the end. Very moving.

Today is the tomorrow you forgot about yesterday....

How on time were these words with what is going on in the country now? This will be my new FB cover pic. (replacing the "Stop Looking for Credit. We are supposed to take care of each other - PRINCE" one that I'm using now.
