NAACP to honor musician Prince
February 17, 2005 11:07 AM EST


LOS ANGELES, Feb 17, 2005 (United Press International via COMTEX) -- The NAACP will honor Oscar- and Grammy-winning musician Prince at its upcoming Image Awards, Fox TV announced Thursday.

The network said the civil rights organization would present Prince with its NAACP Vanguard Award during the 36th NAACP Image Awards ceremony in Los Angeles on March 19. Fox will televise the cerremony on March 25.

The NAACP Vanguard Award is presented to a person "whose groundbreaking work increases understanding and awareness of racial and social issues." It has been only presented twice before -- to Stanley Kramer and Steven Spielberg.

Prince won the Oscar for Best Original Song Score in 1984 for "Purple Rain." He has won four Grammys -- two for "Purple Rain," one for his recording of "Kiss," and one for Best R&B Song of 1984 for the Chaka Khan hit "I Feel for You."

Man, this is awesome news! Congrats again to you Prince. Please show up to this award show (I think he will).
I'm not a fan of "old Prince". I'm not a fan of "new Prince". I'm just a fan of Prince. Simple as that

You're right he did on the 97 Image Awards, but that was the Key of Life award.
This is a different one. I'm just glad somebody is giving Prince his well deserved props.

cool He did get something similar to this in 96. Stevie Wonder was the presenter. I remember Mayte tears of joy for him. He most likely will show up for this. I just hope they get someone decent to present this honor to him.

Isn't it funny (and sad at the same time) that we have to second guess whether Prince will show up to accept this award (or any award from hereon)??

He doesn't show up to one awards program and all of a sudden people are acting like he has a rep for never showing up to awards shows like that. C'mon people...this is an award given specifically to him (this year), so of course he'll be there. Just like there was no question he was gonna show up for the RRHOF induction last year.
