Thank you to Tyka and OP for sharing this info.

As I did the NPG reunion, and am doing the Revolution reunion, I'm not sure if I can swing another trip to MPLS, but I'm looking forward for more information in the coming months.

lov4u I think we should take matters into our own hands and just plan something on the org or call Spike. Didn't the family already have a memorial? Haven't his friends already had one to?

So if the fan memorial is August 15, whose going?



I was hoping that someone representing Prince.org would reach out to Tyka and ask if there is anything at all that she wants or needs from us as a group on this fansite?

The very first thing that is done when someone passes is to reach out to the family to find out if they need anything but I don't know if that was ever done in this case.

Excellent! Thank you so much. Please let us know if there is anything that the family would like for the org members to contribute.

Prince, in you I found a kindred spirit...Rest In Paradise.

Hi Everybody...Can U Believe it's taken this long? But some things have come together so I wanted to jump on and give y'all the update regarding brother's Memorial... Whew and Yaaaayyyyyy!!!



Aug 12th โ€“ A Private Family Memorial for Prince will be held




Aug 13th โ€“ A Friends Memorial (by emailed invitation only) will be held


...Date still TBD โ€“ A Family/Friend/Fans Tribute for Prince - Details coming soon...


You along with all of us have been waiting patiently for the day when we could All extend our heartfelt feelings of disbelief and loss...A day when we can grieve, share stories and dance together for a man who touched our lives, in so many different ways...I regret not being able to give u this opportunity sooner, How-is-an evr' that day is almost here...So hold on...U R Much Appreciated and I promise we haven't forgot about cha...Stay Blessed, Much Love & Peace always ~Tyka

It would be cool if a fan started a Gofundme page or something and organized a real fan tribute one day. We were just as important to him as his family, if not more so. I bet we could get at least $50 from each fan. Think of the party we could have. We would probably have enough to hire a few bands like The Time and The Revolution. Or at the very least, a Prince cover band.

I will never get over loosing Prince. I am glad tho that finally some memorial service is being planned,for the fans/fans. Especially for those who are still grieving. They say some die of a broken heart within 6 months of the passing of their loved one. It's half way to those six months, and in case any of us don't make it, thanks to all who shared in the ride. Despite our differences, Prince brought us altogether with his huge heart, and all the love he gave to the world.
Long live the Love and Joy Prince gave to us heart that can never be taken away.

that sounds a bit dramatic !! I can understand if we were close to Prince or family and as broken hearted as I have been, I dont feel I need to leave this earth yet and I hope most of us are dealing with it a little better now neutral

As great as that sounds, I think it would not work because where do you have it? Some would miss out, we are a global Prince community, some of us (like me in Australia) would miss out - and the family will have some money in the end to do a Tribute and I suspect they are not going to be left without anything?

And the reality is, Prince kind of caused this mess - if he had a will things would not be so messed up, or if it surfaced it would be so wonderful.........

"Chaos and Disorder" - has a new meaning !!

Wow, I can't get over it. I watched my dad take his last breath, unexpetedly, within days of loosing my Prince. I just can't get past it, both of them at the same time. It's just too much. Since April 21st, there hasn't been a moment of piece in my head or a day without tears. I can't get past the image of my beautiful dad taking his last breath, nor can I get pass the thought of my beautiful Prince being in that elevator all alone and needing help and no one was there.


my heart is with you..my dad passed over also, service this Saturday...gotta love as we live each day everyday...

I think I agree with those who say that BET did it for me, in terms of closure. I've come to accept his tragic death and I'm at the stage where I just feel grateful for having seen him live so many times and having been a fan for so many years, which allowed me to build a great collection.
Above all, I will always have the music. Thank you, Prince. <3

yes

If Tyka still plans to put on a fan/public memorial, I wish her well in that endeavor, and appreciate her efforts. I know this must be such a stressful time. rose

I'm sure not over it or even close to being over it. I'm coming terms with it more but yes some of the raw emotion has faded over time, of course. That's how the mourning process works.

.

But I"m glad they are still doing this and I hpe it's a big success.

Much respect to Tyka and the rest of the family. i appreciate her willingness to stay connected to the fan community and provide information.

.

I think she's doing the best she can, considering that *everything* has to be cleared with the courts. Imagine the licensing issues for music, images, performers, etc. on a normal basis but now having to go through several layers of attorneys and courts.

Some of the comments to her on her FB page were rudely accusatory and/or cruel. She doesn't deserve any of that. We should be supportive.

It is great that the family and friends are finally getting the memorial that he deserves and that is needed for this grieving process. I really feel like the fans need a "memorial" also. A "tribute" is great, but many of us feel as close to Prince like he was our family and a solemn and respectful memorial is necessary. I hope that the estate does this for his fans, who Prince loved dearly as well.

I'm guessing the cost of putting on a public memorial is what's keeping it from happening. That's too bad someone as significant and iconic as Prince, and who has legions of fans all around the world, hasn't had a proper public memorial. It almost seems like too much time has passed already. Who waits that long? I'm not trying to be critical of Tyka or anyone else. I'm sure it hasn't been easy for her. (The lack of a will didn't help.) I do hope the two events already planned go well and are befitting a "Prince".

In a situation like this you're dealing with estate law as pertaining to legal rights, interests and entitlements to intellectual properties, ect. It's a legally compicated situation, and I imagine not having proper heirs in place at the time of his passing certain didn't help.

You've always been one of my favorite orgers because of your love for UTCM and that era.

Does your post mean that you didn't expect it to turn out this way, and that they haven't included fam at all in the memorial plans? (Don't want to put words in your mouth, so wanted to ask.) I personally am really disappointed that the TBA fam event looks like it might be a tribute concert instead of a memorial. I really thought from the beginning that we would be able to attend a memorial event even though it would also be a concert.

I'm glad you've got closure but she's Prince's sister, so for that reason I will support her endeavours and wish her well. I won't be able to attend, another global fan, but I'll watch it somehow if it's streamed anywhere, even if I have to pay.
Baby, you're a star.

I wish I felt as though the BET Awards tribute was enough, but, to be completely honest, it just wasn't, certainly not for an unparalleled musical artist, composer, arranger, producer, and performer such as Prince.

While I'm not certain on what scale and in what capacity a more public-access offered presentation/tribute could be brought to fruition, I am estatic that Tyka and family are considering some type of celebration, and are cognizant that countless individuals still desire same!

We are indeed blessed that she is coming here to share her thoughts and wishes for ways in which all of us can share in the true honour of her brother, OUR brother, Prince Rogers Nelson!



I'd rather give people what they need rather than just what they want.

~ Prince


Dear Brother, I pray you now know the ethereal measure of divine soul love and music you gifted all of us!!

I have nothing against this memorial, nor did i say/imply that in my comment? Just reinforcing the idea that, for me, BET did and I feel like I had closure. And that I'm grateful for the music. People really need to stop reading antagonism and conflict everywhere. sad

The greatest live performer of our times was is and always will be Prince.

Tyka did also post on her Facebook months ago that something unexpected impeded a timely memorial for him. She mentioned that the only reason that they did the little acknowledgement service at Paisley two days later was because guests had already flew in for the by-then postponed funeral. She also mentioned that she supported the other memorials (Mayte/Mani's LA event), but made it clear that they weren't family productions and that she felt that only one family event was appropriate. I know that his assets were frozen, but I don't necessarily think that the reasons for delay were strictly financial--the city of Chanhassen or even Warner Brothers could have offered to pay for a lavish funeral (he generated a lot of revenue for both entities). Whatever it was, probably isn't atypical to Prince's lack of will. Michael Jackson also didn't receive an actual funeral until months later---in September after dying in June even with a will. The family just couldn't agree where to inter him, so that might be the issue with all these siblings and half-siblings, potential heirs involved with Prince. I'm like Mariah Carey though..."I'll never get over it."

Also, no one apart from a professional, large scale venue can afford to insure a fan event properly against, ya know, crime, or claims of accidents and injuries on a(ny) property eiither by guests or folks working an event. And the estate damn sure should Not open itself up to that kind of liability. But no one here dreaming up ideas takes into account those sorts of every day realities.
