Last week, reports had surfaced that Prince had a song in the works, which would be dedicated to Baltimore and would debut at a concert in support of the city, in the wake of the ongoing protests and uprising.
The Purple One recently announced an upcoming concert in statement,
“In a spirit of healing, the event is meant to be a catalyst for pause and reflection following the outpouring of violence that has gripped Baltimore and areas throughout the U.S.,” a press release said. “As a symbolic message of our shared humanity and love for one another, attendees are invited to wear something gray in tribute to all those recently lost in the violence.”
Tickets for the concert, which takes place on Sunday, May 10th, go on sale later today, May 6th, at 5pm. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to local youth groups.
