During my 20 years of touring the world with Prince he would look out at the audience and
say “Why is it that you people of different colors, creed, cultures can get together and groove in here,
but when you leave you can’t seem to get along?”
I learned the unifying POWER of music from Prince,
and I will continue his legacy through World Symphony for Peace,
showing the peoples of the world can CHOOSE
to groove inside the arena AND outside too!
