Twelve Thirteen Seventeen - Discuss Part Three of the Sharon Nelson Thread Here

Sharon's much anticipated 3rd installment of her member directed questions on 121317.

Backwards 3121 y'all. cool

Go ahaead and use this thread to discuss this final phase of the interview. Thanks for all your kind words - and haters? You be you ... you be you ...

- June7

[UPDATE: Many People asked what happened to Parts I & II, “why’d they disappear?” Actually, they only disappeared from the top as a sticky, I only unstickied them, and they fell to where “non-Hot” threads go ... they dropped from the front page. So, I restickied them for you guys to make it easier to find. Sorry for the confusion. - June7]

LOL - And your dates confuse us in the US. I went to England back in 2000 and had to complete a customs form or something, and wrote my birthdate as 10/28/xx. The gentleman that took the form looked it over and changed my birthdate to 28/10/xx. I said, "Ohhh, you all do it backwards over here!" (Was just amazed by everything, because it was my first time out of the states). This very proper British gentleman, replied, "No, Madam. We do it correctly." lol

Thanks June, I enjoyed this interview series. As for your comments about people being rude about the earlier questions. It's the internet, rude people come with the territory. It's unfortunate, but that's just the nature of the beast.

I just want to thank Sharon for taking the time to engage the fans and answering questions about her brother. It's been 1 year and 8 months since I saw his last two performances in Atlanta, and I still miss him. The world is a lot less bright without his shining star gracing us with his presence. I really enjoyed your responses and was glad to know that he did know how very loved he was the world over. I think we should all be so blessed to realize how loved we are when we make that final journey.

June7, thank you for putting this together and letting us get to know Sharon a little more through her responses to our questions.

While everyone talks about Prince's legacy as his music, his legacy is also his family, loved ones, and friends, those whose lives he touched in intimate ways, ways in which us fans could only catch a glimpse of from afar. We've lost our star, but we've gained a family. I hope they continue to show prince.org, his fans, and each other love 4 one another, and I pray that we can do the same.

Thank you for these awesome words. I truly appreciate your comments, and yes, we will never be the same with him gone. I was glad this turned out the way it did - and yeah, I kinda have to pinch myself when I think that I can reach out and probably get a hold of one of the six heirs of my beloved Prince, if I needed to, and she'd most likely (hopefully) answer.

Life is weird.

Thanks again,

June7

Very useful. Now we finally know what the next vault release will be, how many finished albums were ready to go and how many concert footage and unreleased tracks are in the vaults. We also know now if there were lots of tapes totally decayed and unusable. Definitely worth the wait. Thanks. How's that for positivity.... biggrin
It's nice she wants to answer our questions. But the only real answers were to questions nobody cares about. This is not rude. Only the truth and everybody knows that. She never ever really had a strong relationship with our dear prince.

People here asked the questions, so obviously some people did care about the answers. She can't talk of things she doesn't know.

I know. And I am not a hater here on the org as people may know. But the things she doesn't know are the things we really want to know smile
