COMING 6.7.2020

Prince Musicians Unite to perform “The Cross”

Collaborative version released on 62nd anniversary of Prince’s birth.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Minneapolis, MN – June 7, 2020 – Kirk Johnson of Minneapolis based KAJ Productions, long-time producer, dancer and drummer with Prince, has released a collaborative version of Prince’s song, “The Cross”, from his iconic Sign O’ The Times album. Bringing together musicians crossing all four decades of Prince’s remarkable career, the ensemble unites band members from The Revolution, New Power Generation and 3RDEYEGIRL.


In the midst of widespread unrest gripping Minneapolis and America, and the backdrop of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the performance is presented as a message of hope, love and peace. Prior to recording and producing the song, Johnson queried Prince’s fans via social media asking for song suggestions and the collective consensus was “The Cross.” Musicians then recorded parts individually within their homes, sending to Johnson who assembled the isolated parts into the unified performance.


Prince was born in Minneapolis, MN on June 7, 1958, thus the performance is being released on what would have been the legend’s 62nd birthday.

That has just blown my mind. Seeing all those brilliant musicians playing together on such a great song. Im crying As I post this. This is the first time I have cried about Prince since his death. It has just got to me. It might sound shallow, but how great would it be for a Prince tribute concert with all these amazing people. Going on tour, when all this madness is over

This is the best cover/tribute since Prince's passing. And all musicians he's worked with over his career. This put a smile on his face for sure. Thank you Kirk and everyone involved. 💜

Yeah I don't know why it was moved here. The more I think about it I'm guessing Levi Seacer, Miko Weaver or maybe Mike Scott? I think all of them worked with Kirk at some point?
