We were devastated to hear that Prince had died. To pay our respects, we invited 1999 singers to Massey Hall in Toronto and, over the course of a couple hours, they learned our arrangement to When Doves Cry. It was a beautiful and emotional evening that included a performance of Purple Rain by Sabrina Wan + Brad McGoey from the Regent Park School of Music, and a sighting of Le Petit Prince. After all the parts came together, we shot this video, which is the next best thing to having been in the room. Then we went to Yonge-Dundas Square to sing it one more time.
Thanks to everyone for helping us pay tribute to one of our favourite artists of all time.
