Hello Ms. Nelson. I don't really have any questions that other people have already posed, but I wanted to express my condolences and let you know that your brother, through his music, made so happy so many times. And for that I will always be grateful.

(((To Sharon and all of the members of the Nelson family)))- you have my most humble condolances on the loss of Prince. He was loved by so, so many around the world. He was a very important part of my life since the early 1980's, although I never had the chance to meet him, shake his hand and say 'Thank you.' He will live on in his music. My question is: 'What is your most favorite memory of Prince and you?' Thank you for your time in doing this for all of us Org members.

Thank you for giving us this opportunity.


When was the first time you thought "wow, my brother's famous!"?


What is your favourite & least favourite song/album of his?


What is your ideal scenario for continuing his legacy?


Is there any truth to the rumours about a reality show?


Do you think he intentionality didn't leave a will?


Tyka is quoted as saying she had known for 2 years and had already "made peace" by the time of his passing, was it a shock to you or had you "made peace" too?

Much respect & well wishes

Music is music, ultimately. If it makes you feel good, cool.

2) Did Prince ever grow to love soccer the same as basketball?


3) Was Jeannette Gutierrez any good at teaching him chess?

Will the estate consider a premium subscriber service for hardcore fans (similar to Prince's own NPG Music Club) to facilitate the release of Prince's later work and other projects (Welcome 2 America, Black is the New Black, Phase 3, etc.) that would predominantly appeal to those who know and have followed Prince's work most closely?



First of all, Sharon, thank you for taking the time to communicate with us.

I echo the question above and would love to see something like this for those of us who closely followed Prince's entire career.

the "follow up" album remasters, to the newly Purple Rain Expanded 3Cd/1Dvd..?

please on behalf of the Prince community, will you make sure it will be these albums, in case you can have some kind of influence on future releases from Warner :

1. 1999 remaster with outtakes maybe

2. Around The World In A Day with the brilliant extended versions (Rapberry Beret, Paisley Park (song), America, Pop Life, She's Always In My Hair, & Hello)

3. Parade and bonus disc

4. Sign O' The Times, bonus, outtakes, incl. the movie?

5. Lovesexy and bonus


I really hope these will have a remaster treatment, these brillaint "works of art" truly deserves it.

Thanks, Sharon, in case my "?'s" are relevant. heart

Don't forget the extended 30 minute Joshua Welton remix if Jughead. I want to hear that

Well...I'm just going to say...

Hello, Sharon Nelson! wave

Your brother meant a great deal to me and had a massive impact on my life. I would not be the me that I am, had it not been for his crafting the soundtrack of my life as it was lived and allowing me the privilege of experiencing his truly extraordinary journey- along the way - in my own way. hammer

For that, I will be eternally grateful to him and any sacrifices he made along the way. heart

With that being said, along with my sincerest condolences...and NOT getting myself banned...thank you for doing this and welcome to The Org! kiss2

Thanks for doing this Sharon! I heard recently that there are four unreleased Prince & The Revolution albums in the vault. What are the chances that we will get to finally see those released in the next couple of years?

My heartfelt condolences to your family and thank you for sharing with us Ms. Sharon. It was a blessing to meet Prince in Vegas and be able to tell him to his face how much his artistry meant to me. I wonder if he kept what I gave him?


Anyway, you probably can't answer that but perhaps you can tell us when and if the 3121 movie or any other video will be released other than what is already out?

Also, what is the one memory that you will cherish most about your brother?

Be blessed!

Prince, in you I found a kindred spirit...Rest In Paradise.

Hello Ma'am,

I hope you are doing well. I would agree with the previous posters in that I would like to know:

1. When additional unreleased music might be released as strictly standalone releases from the vault?

2. If there is a chance that there might be consideration of a release of a book of unreleased poetry / lyrics from Prince's notebooks as we have often heard how prolific he was in regards to writing. This man had such a unique mind and view of the world which we would all like to have better insight into.

Thank you for your time and consideration of these questions.

Hello Sharon. My condolences to you and your family. Missing your brother so much. It's thoughtful and kind of you to take the time to speak with us. Thank you for this. 1-Are there really only 50 pages of Prince's memoirs, and will it ever be published? 2-What's next on the list of Vault materials to be released? 3-Please tell me there really is another Vanity Six album, and if so, are there plans to release it? [Edited 7/14/17 6:01am]

Regarding the memoir, I am wondering the same thing also.

Hello Sharon,

I extend to you and your family my condolences on the loss of Prince. Thank you for taking the time to respond to our questions.

.

I am wondering if there are any plans to re-issue out-of-print albums such as Diamonds and Pearls, prince, Emancipation, and Musicology. Diamonds and Pearls (my second favourite Prince album) was one of his best-selling albums, yet it is virtually impossible to purchase new copies of it in CD form from major retailers, both in brick-and-mortar stores or online.

.

I am a former elementary special education teacher and am wondering if the Estate has considered working with a publisher to create Prince-related children's books in order to provide younger generations with greater exposure to Prince. Here are 2 examples:

- A biography about Prince that is appropriate for children

- An illustrated version of "Starfish and Coffee" in which the song's lyrics are the words and an illustrator would make illustrations.

.

Warmly,

Michelle

Hi Sharon,

Your brothers music has brought me so much joy through the years - I will always be thankful.
If it isn't prying too much, are you able to share any memory of Prince that makes you smile or laugh :D

Thank you for taking the time to come to the org cool

Hi Sharon, thanks for joining us. Like everybody else I'd like to express condolences to your family for the loss of your wonderful brother. He meant the world to us too.

Question 1: what is your favourite Prince song/album?

Question 2: I don't know how much input you have regarding reissues but could you pressure labels to fact check for future releases? The liner notes of the PR reissue contained a lot of errors regarding recording details. I'm sure the experts here on the Org or PrinceVault would be only too pleased to help in this regard.

Thank you.

Hi Sharon

I'm so sad for your loss but I hope you take some comfort from knowing what a profound effect he had on so many people's lives.

I would like to know 2 things: Does any footage exist of Prince playing from the very early days, ie. from Grand Central up to the For You album?
Also, I understand he stayed with you in New York before he was signed trying to get a record deal. What was he like then and what conversations did you have with him about his future?

Thank you Sharon so much for doing this.
There are so many fans still hurting from Prince's passing, I hope this is as much of a healing process for you as it is for us.

Questions:
1. When Prince changed his name to a symbol, what did you call him?
2.Will Paisley Park items (books etc) be available to purchase in Europe?

3. Lastly, I hope nobody minds this question, but as a creative dyslexic person myself, I've often wondered, was Prince dyslexic in anyway?

Thank you.

Hear are my 3 main questions:

1) What is the current state of the vault, are you still going through it?



2) When can we expect official Prince music DIRECT from the estate/vault being released? does the Estate have a proper plan or strategy for releasing vault material once it has been catalogued?


3) Does the Prince estate approve of Warner Brothers new releases and is vault material being passed onto them for re release?

Ms. Nelson, thank you for this opportunity. Are there any plans to release all of Prince's tours as both video (DVD) and audio? If so, will there be multiple releases from each tour, such as three different shows from the Dirty Mind Tour and three different shows from the Controversy Tour? Additionally, if this is being considered, then what about the possibility of releasing the tours--video and audio--from an independent website so that fans can purchase/download individual songs--audio and video--from each show of each tour as well. For instance, we could purchase/download an entire show—audio or video—for $19.99 or purchase/download one song—audio or video—for $0.99. Again, thank you for this opportunity to pose a question, and I hope that you and your family continue to gain comfort and strength.
