KING to perform at concert benefiting area nonprofits
By Harry Colbert, Jr., Managing Editor, @HarryColbertJr
Prince left us with many gifts before his untimely passing.
The man who made it hip to say you were from Minnesota … who put First Avenue on the map … who made Lake Minnetonka a household name worldwide … who was Bruno Mars before Bruno Mars (and much better at it) … left an indelible legacy in music, in film and in our hearts. But there’s another legacy that Prince left behind … his legacy of philanthropic giving.
During his existence here on earth, Prince Rogers Nelson gave countless amounts of money to those in need and to worthy causes. This wasn’t celebrated during the artist’s life because for the most part … outside of a select few … most never knew about Prince’s giving. Many of the recipients of Prince’s generosity were unaware as to who was their benefactor.
