Interesting facts about Prince!
His real name is Prince! Both of his parents were musicians, Prince Rogers Nelson was named after his father’s jazz combo.
Prince was Baptised in 2001 as a Jehovah’s Witness. He was a devout Jehovah’s Witness; he even went door-to-door.
He wrote music for other performers. In addition to penning several hundred songs for himself, Prince also composed music for other artists, including “Manic Monday” for the Bangles, “I Feel For You” for Chaka Khan, and “Nothing Compares 2 U” for Sinéad O’Connor.
Just over a year after Prince’s death, global colour authority Pantone created a royal shade of purple in honour of him, in conjunction with the late singer’s estate. Appropriately, it is known as Love Symbol #2.
In 1987, Prince’s half-sister, Lorna Nelson, sued him, claiming that she had written the lyrics to “U Got the Look,” a song from “Sign ‘☮’ the Times” that features pop artist Sheena Easton. In 1989, the court went in favour of Prince.
In 2006, Universal hid 14 purple tickets—seven in the U.S. and seven internationally—inside Prince’s album, 3121. Fans who found a purple ticket were invited to attend a private performance at Prince’s Los Angeles home.
He simultaneously held the number one spots for film, recorded single and album during the week of July 27, 1984. Prince’s film Purple Rain hit number one at the box office. That same week, the film’s soundtrack was the best-selling album and “When Doves Cry” was holding the top spot for singles.
