Prince4Everyone - April 2017 Campaign - UPDATE!


1f49c.png PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD! 1f49c.png


Dear purple followers,


Between 7th and 21st April 2017 we are hoping to get as many people as possible to download / stream 'The Beautiful Ones' so that the song enters the charts around the World just in time for the commemorative period. This will be our way of honouring and celebrating Prince whilst putting forward one of his slightly less known - yet poignant - track from the Purple Rain era.


As a brief reminder, this is the song that was chosen and voted for by the majority of you earlier this year through a survey done on a separate website (SurveyPlanet).


It doesn't really matter when exactely the streaming or download is done, because charts dates are not the same everywhere, as long as the download / streaming is done:

- from official DIGITAL outlets (Spotify, Amazon, iTunes, Deezer, etc),
- USING THE VERSION ON THE PURPLE RAIN ALBUM
- within the same time frame (April 7th - 21st).


Until then, there are many ways in which you can spread the word:

1) Like our Facebook page
2) Share / like our ads
2) Follow us on Twitter @Prince4Everyone
3) Create your own banners + post them here for others to share
4) Contact your local / national radiostations and ask them to play 'The Beautiful Ones' and to mention the campaign.


If you can think of any other ways please post them below!


Thanks again to all of you, for the wonderful support you have given us so far. Let's keep this going and give it our best for our forever beloved Prince.


Purple wishes to all

'Prince4Christmas' has now become 'Prince4Everyone', a name that reflects more accurately our main goal, which is to help Prince's music reach a wider audience. We are hoping that by making it more 'visible' to the general public, Prince's legacy will inspire more generations to come and maybe even encourage them to pick up a musical instrument.

Our recent campaign started in January 2017, with a view to promote a Prince song to reach the charts in April. We will also continue to promote https://levelup4love.org/, a website that gathers in one place the majority of the charities that Prince used to support.

Apart from the new name, our Facebook and Twitter pages will remain the same so all you have to do is sit back, enjoy the ride and invite more friends to come along.

We look foward to working with you all in 2017!

Yes, ma'am...My apologies for not being around much to support the campaign (due to personal reasons, I came off the internet entirely for a bit) but I shall do my best now though!

I totally understand. I have been without a reliable connection for 2 weeks now and it's been a struggle to keep the campaign going. Thankfully it has been going relatively well on Facebook and still going strong. It's just a shame unexpected issues prevented me from giving it that extra push during the crucial weeks. There's still three days left though. It's in the fans' hands now.

Thanks for the feedback but it's a bit late for this now lol. I did my best with what I had at hand. I'm certainly not a professional graphic designer and never claimed to be one. The campaign did however encourage anyone to create and spread their own banner. I also asked people for help at the start but that didn't go very far. That said the visuals however helpful do not constitute the main part of this campaign. It's not what it looks like that matter but what it conveys: we're all in this together and Prince is why. 💜
