Publicist Karen Lee talks about her experiences with Prince

https://eurweb.com/2019/0...oundation/

.

Excerpts:

.

“You know, when PRINCE died I could have retired on the book deals I was offered. But I wouldn’t do that. That’s not who I am,” Karen Lee states.

.

[...]

.

“There are about 15 of us that previously worked for him that have come together and created a foundation called the ‘PRN Alumni Foundation.'”

.

Karen Lee reveals how each of the practitioners involved in the Foundation have some kind of crazy story about their experience working with Prince, but she also says the public may not realize just how charitable The Purple One was. He has given money to numerous organizations.

.

“We came together to be able to support some of the charities he has given to, as well as to be able to help support some of the people who worked with him, musicians, who may be down on their luck.”

.

[...]

.

“Prince put women in positions of power before it was fashionable,” Lee tells LB. She speaks about a panel that took place recently in Oakland at The Pandora, with female engineers who worked with Prince on some of his most popular records.

Nice link and information. I'm sure she and Prince bonded over their desire to help kids with special needs. Loved reading about Prince donating to the Urban Farmers organization. I remember him talking about his plan to build that "Egg" structure next to PP in order to provide freshly cooked food to his staff and others. It's too bad it did not work out as he had planned.
