Did Prince sing when he was younger also, or did he just play instruments?

Thanks, Fiona.

Hello Sharon, hope u r doing ok. Prince was just the best, super talented and everyone of his fans miss him. The question I would like 2 ask is have u met any of Prince's associates and if so what is your opinion of them? Also what is your favourite song that Prince wrote 4 another singer or group?

Hello Ms. Sharon, Just a quick question about the "youngens" in your family. Are there any sons, daughters, nieces or nephews interested in musical careers? Thank you.

Hello Sharon,

Thanks for so much for your time and sharing. My deepest condolences on the loss of your brother.

Could you talk just a bit about the evolution of Prince's religious feeling and his relationship with God?

Was he a big Bible reader as a child or a teen?

At what point in life would you say he began to take a serious interest in spirituality and/or God? Was there ever any confict between his spirituality and relationship with God and his other serious pursuits/interests?

I'd be most grateful for any insight of any kind you might be inclined to offer in this area of your brother's journey.

Thanks so much!

Hello Ms. Sharon, first off let me say that I am deeply sorry for the loss of your brother, I can't imagine losing my brother. The question(s) I have for you is, if at all possible could you elaborate on the relationship between you and your brother Prince? Where you guys at all close? Was he close to any of his brothers and sisters? Family is really important and it pains me to think that his relationships with his family was streamed in anyway. Thank you.

Hello Ms. Nelson!




I have two questions:




This is one you probably get asked constantly, but do you know what the next Vault release will be? And can you give us any more information about the rumors of the 1983 First Avenue Benefit Concert DVD being shopped around?




And secondly, what do you wish the world knew about Prince that they don't know already?

Hi Sharon, It was reported that Prince wanted his concerts shown at Paisley Park. Earlier this year, Paisley Park was screening unreleased concerts and that suddenly stopped in April. Will these screenings continue at some point? Also, with the amount of items that have been archived, around 7,000 according to reports, it would be nice if they could rotate items more frequently. Thank you for keeping Paisley Park open for the fans!

Hi Ms Nelson,

My heartfelt condolences to you and your family on the tragic passing of your brother, Prince.

Could you tell us if Prince attended family gatherings, and if so, what sorts of things he liked to talk about. Did he, for instance, share detailed accounts of his music, current and future projects?

Thanks for taking the time to visit the Org.
Kindest regards.

Hi Ms. Nelson,

Thank you for taking time to do this. My condolances for the loss of your brother. He will be missed.

I have one question: Prince was a musician and showman. He created a certain public image and later in his life when wisdom and spirituality took over, he tried to recreate his image more or less. He once said that it was all part of his journey in life to become the person he eventually would turn out to be. Do you think, or has Prince ever expressed, that he had serious regrets or doubts about how he handled things in his life or career? He always looked so confident, but after all, he was just a man. We never really got the chance to hear his own reflections on his career or read his personal memoirs.

Kind regards,

Dennis Obrink

Hi Ms Nelson,

Firstly, my condolences to you and your family for the loss of your brother.

Q: If you had to pick ONE song from all of Prince's music, which one is your favourite and why?

Hello Sharon -

Regarding the upcoming John L. Nelson album (I am very excited about this project!)

1. Does the newly recorded music stay absolutely true to what was written on the sheet music that was found or has it been "improved" upon or altered in any way? If so, how?

2. Did you find more music that will not be included on this release? If so, how did you choose which tracks to include?

3. Was Prince familiar with any of this music? Did he play any of the songs with his father at any point?

Thank you for considering answering my questions. I look forward to resolution with the estate (Prince's musical catalog) and many more exciting releases in the future!!

Dear Ms. Sharon,

Thank you for your time.

I remember on the day Prince passed there was an avatar of Prince's face on his Twitter with his eyes closed and a teardrop falling.

It was removed just as quickly as soon as the news hit the world.

Do you know who put the picture up and removed it?

Warm wishes rose

Very good question...?

Hi Sharon,

From the last time Prince visited the JW's place of worship to the time he passed, Do you think he might have came back to the Christain Faith and renounced the JWs?

Hello Ms. Nelson,

If you do see this message I want to say I'm so sorry for your family's loss. My mother and I are fans of Prince, especially my mom. I'm sad that he is no longer here and we miss him. I can't imagine how you and your family feel so again my condolence to you.

I love animals and was wondering other than his doves did Prince have any other pets when he passed away? I've seen pictures of a cat he had back in the 80s or early 90s named Paisley but haven't heard of any other pets.

Thanks for allowing the fans to ask you questions.

Hi Ms Nelson,

My condolences for your loss. I'd like to ask your opinion on what would be the best way to honor Prince's legacy? Do you see a comprehensive release of the majority of his body of work being available in the future and would this be a fitting way to preserve Prince's genius in the historical record?

Dear Sharon,

My sympathies go out to you and your family. Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions I really appreciate this.

There has been a lot of speculation and conjecture about how Denise Matthews' passing affected Prince in his final months. The Australian newspaper Herald Sun wrote about it after his Melbourne concert. Many people believe that Prince and Denise maintained a special connection throughout the years.

Could you tell us something more about this? Did Prince express his feelings to you about Denise's passing? Did they stay in touch throughout the years? If any, what was their recent relationship like? I understand the gravity of these questions, but people have come up with the wildest theories and hypotheses on this topic.

Thank you for this opportunity and I wish you all the best

Dear Sharon,

Thank you so much for taking the time to reach out to the fan community. Prince meant so much to his fans, and I can't imagine how hard it must be for his family after losing him. hug

First, I wanted to say thank you for the efforts thus far to push forward with your brother's legacy. The release of "Moonbeam Levels" on 4Ever was incredibly moving to me - that song has such wonder and its release was very helpful to me personally during what was a very difficult year, so thank you.

A question, if I may: there are many, many fans on prince.org who are encyclopedias of Prince knowledge (including BorisFishpaw, oldfriends4sale, Militant, Neversin, and many more I am forgetting). Would the estate consider engaging with fans like these for subsequent releases? While the opinions of Prince fans are wide and varied, the inclusion of fans such as these would be a great step in ensuring that future releases are received as enthusiastically as possible by the fanbase.

Once again, thank you for your time and consideration.

Feel free to join in the Prince Song Poll 2016! Let'a celebrate his legacy by counting down the most beloved Prince songs, as decided by you!

My sincere condolences to you & your family Ms. Nelson. I have been a fam of your brother since his very first single back in the late 70's. My question is what do you think of Mayte's book? Have you read it & what are your thoughts on it?
