Just hours after the news of Prince’s death, Lee posted on Instagram a call for all Prince fans to unite in Brooklyn to remember the artist and his music. The block party, which occurred outside Lee’s headquarters, saw the streets full of fans in purple, joined together as they listened to some of Prince’s greatest hits.
The new announcement comes the day after he attended a ceremony in Los Angeles to remember the singer, which was put together by his two ex-wives, Manuela Testolini and Mayte Garcia.
According to a statement from Prince’s family none of these events are deemed official memorial services.
“We would like everyone to know that, contrary to previous and current reports, there has been no memorial, funeral or tribute service for Prince that was organized or authorized by the family or Paisley Park representatives. Together, the family is planning an official memorial service and public event to take place in the near future,” the statement said.
