Throughout the years, and all of my crises, Prince was always there for me. During my bankruptcy he asked me to go on the road with him. When I made the decision to retire he called me and told me that I had a gift and that I could not stop now. He was like my big brother, always looking out for me. No other artist has meant as much to me as he did. He was always there for me giving me his support. I will miss him so much. He was as special of a friend as he was a brilliant talent. My condolences to his family. Good night, sweet Prince. 💜
