This is a tribute show Prince does not need to be there. If this tribute is anything like the tribute show like was done for Curtis Mayfield at Avery Fisher Hall back in June,then it will be great.I went to that tribute which his old group. THE impressions was there also,Mavis Staples,Bilal,Sinead O Connor;The Roots,Meshell Ndegeocello and more excellent show. Like i said Prince dies not need there this is a tribute to him,but the artist i would pick to oerform would be: The Revolution Sheila E. Bilal Meshell Ndegeocello The Roots Alicia Keys Andre 3000 Mint Condition Frank Ocean Pharrell Trey Songz Cyndi Lauper Robin Thicke Andre Cymone Q Tip Sinead O Connor Chaka Khan India Arie Musiq Jill Scott

The same Trey Songz that butchered the hell out of Purple Rain when he interpolated it into his performance on the BET Awards, causing many people to wonder "Is THIS the tribute? OMG"

The event organizer Michael Dorf is no slouch when it comes to presenting top notch talent--he used to own the Knitting Factory. Based on the past tributes, my guess is he will shy away from trendy, pop acts. It is just as unlikely that any former associates will be there--hasn't Sheila E. tweeted enough that she and Prince are through? The artists who performed at previous tributes are working artists in their own right, so I think "the Revolution" is unlikely.

"That...magic, the start of something revolutionary-the Minneapolis Sound, we should cherish it and not punish prince for not being able to replicate it."-Dreamshaman32

^^I remember that, when Trey Songz sang Prince's song, and yes, he did butcher it. I remember Prince looking like he was pissed at him. lol

this can either be great or lame.

I really don't care for artists that claim to have been influenced by Prince. If Alicia Keys or Janelle Monae show up, it would be cool but boring.

If I had my way, I'd want to see serious mash-ups instead these r+b artists that will surely drag the proceedings down.

I wanna see the Foo Fighters on this.

Why would r&b artists performing at this tribute drag proceeds down? Some of the best artists have been influenced by R&B music, even Prince, and he still embraces r&b. A mixture of various genres of music that reflect all the types of music, Prince has embraced in his singing/performance style, over the years would be just fine, r&b included, by various artists.

I doubt it would be mainly r&b genre artists performing in this tribute.

I cannot imagine the foo fighters singing Prince's soul ballads though, like 'Adore' or 'Insatiable'. I could see maybe D`Angelo or Robin Thicke singing those types of tracks. I could also see Cindy Lauper singing some of Prince`s bluesy, spiritual tracks like 'Willing & Able', just as much as I could see India Arie singing some of Prince's lighter ballads, and Mint Condition, Lenny Kravitz, Maroon 5 or Muse playing some of his rock songs. Oh and just to add, I could see Meshell Ndegeocello rocking Prince's songs too, especially 'Dreamer'.

Ok yes I was generalizing here. But i regard Prince as this great "synthesizer" of popular music. there are so many styles wrapped up in his music, and judging by past tributes to him, the performers have always been one sided and that has usually been r + b artists. I have absolutely nothing against those artists or that genre but I'd like to see surprises. I know the Foos would never even be asked to be on a show like that (I'm sure they would accept in a heart beat) and I only used them as an example to try and mix things up.

If I see The Time (who I love) and Sheila E. (who I love as well) on that stage, it kind of defeats the purpose to me.

If you're referring to the last tribute by BET, actually Janelle Monae and Esperanza Spalding who performed some of Prince's songs, aren't r&b artiists. Janelle's music is more alternative/futuristic rock/pop/some funk, and Esperanza Spalding is a Jazz artist. Not sure how you define or categorize r&b artists. I think part of Prince's mission regarding his music output and creativity over the years, was to break that barrier and stigma regarding how the music industry categorized a musician's/artist's creative skills, based on race or the type of music the industry assumed/expected of some musicians/artists, based on their race. Prince pretty much helped to change those expectations in the industry, and helped to open doors for other artists to take risks, and not limit their creative, music skills into one category.

Not too many musicians/artists has quite the catalog he has, in the form of the various genres of music he's touched. So I imagine that this tribute will have various artists performing many of Priince's music styles. Guess we'll have to wait and see which musicians/artists will be listed to perform.

No Usher. HelllllNooooo!!!!!
Prince did an interview with a woman at Record World. They talked about whatever, then he asked her: "Does your pubic hair go up to your navel?" At that moment, we thought maybe we shouldn't encourage him to do interviews.

Not a bad lineup. I could see Stevie Wonder singing some of Prince's more political/Planet Earth type tracks. Sheila E playing his latin-flavored tracks. Chaka Khan singing his more upbeat r&b soul tracks along with Patti LaBelle. The Time doing Prince's Minneapolis sound. Lenny can definitely do Prince's popular rock and blues-rock tracks, no question, and maybe add Joni Mitchell to the list to do his pop ballads. Maceo doing P's jazz and funk tracks. I think musicians/artists he's had a close or long-term, music history with or whose music he was influenced by, should be doing some of the tributes. I honestly don't know why some of his fans though, tend to belittle P's r&b/soul flavor, when he has so many, beautiful, soul and blues ballads.

Nice choices. I agree with some on your list with the exception of a few. I can see some of these artists as part of the tribute as well. Here's another list just for fun, although my choices are subject to change:

Solo Acts

Gwen Stefani - Definitely a good choice

Bruno Mars - Good choice

Christine Aguilera

Ceelo Green - Good choice

Madonna

D'Angelo - Good choice, without question

Cindy Lauper

Eric Clapton

Joni Mitchell

Beyonce - Now you all know Beyonce is going to want to be inclusive in this..lol

Esperanza Spalding

Chaka Khan

Combined performances/Bands

Mint Condition

Black Eyed Peas - Good choice, even though they're not a favorite, but a good pick

No Doubt (with Gwen Stefani)

Foo Fighters - Ok, I'll go with that, even though don't know much about them

Bono/U2

Maroon 5

Outkast w/Andre 3000 featuring Janelle Monae (Janelle used to perform with Outkast)

The Roots

Maya Rudolph and Princess band

Main presenters

Chaka Khan, Patti LaBelle and Sheila E., Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis (w/add other names later)

Not so likely to want to see perform or inclusive at this tribute

No Katy Perry - She'll turn it into a bubble-gum popsy mess

No Lady Gaga - No need for a Madonna ripoff, plus she may pull that 'throwing up' mess. I prefer the real 'Madonna' to perform instead, as she is from Prince's era

No Usher - Please no, like another orger stated (lol)

NoJustin Bieber - (Lawd help us all if he's part of this tribute

I don't think that's anything unusual considering many longtime and casual fans haven't heard every, single song Prince has written. Although I've been a fan of his music from the beginning, there's a lot of his songs I just found out about in 2004 and later, after the Musicology era. smile

According to an article in the New York Times:

An annual concert at Carnegie Hall to raise money for music education will feature Talib Kweli, the Roots and the Blind Boys of Alabama this year as they pay tribute to the songs of Prince.

...other acts on the bill include Booker T., Living Colour, DeVotchKa and Madeleine Peyroux. The Roots, led by the drummer Questlove, will anchor the show, backing up many of the guest vocalists.

The check. The string he dropped. The Mona Lisa. The musical notes taken out of a hat. The glass. The toy shotgun painting. The things he found. Therefore, everything seen–every object, that is, plus the process of looking at it–is a Duchamp.
