Along with Morris Day of The Time. Here’s what Sheila E. had to say to Rolling Stone –

“I was very honored to be able to do this for so many reasons, but to be able to help celebrate the life of a dear friend and be a part of this and be musical director is awesome.”

“Musically, there’s so much to choose from. It’s almost unfair to do a two-hour tribute to him — we could do a full week. At the end of the day, it’s him bringing people together and having a good time.”

Though the world was shocked when hearing of the passing of our beloved Prince, his music will live on. Can’t wait for this one, it’s sure to be a memorable night. Will you be watching?
