“”Love the (2018) end of year review. Excellent concept to share and involve the community in the growth of the channel. Your work is so inspiring and informative. I enjoy learning your perspective of his music. I love to study song lyrics, research when he wrote and recorded the songs in parallel with what was going on in his life at the time that would influence the music. All ways we can get to know him better… 💜💜💜💜. May we live 2 C the dawn!!!”

“Prince’s Friend, I am a new subscriber. I found your channel when I came across the video you did about Dez Dickerson which was so fascinating. Me and a friend recently traveled to the Twin Cities where we took a tour of Paisley Park. What an amazing and emotional experience that was. Anyways, I just wanted to reach out to you and let you know how much I enjoy your content. You are a fascinating man.”  Nathanial  January  2019

What people are saying

“First of all I would like to say thank you for all that you do. Your channel is growing and I’m so happy for your successes. I’m so glad to have stumbled upon your channel and have always been looking forward ever since. My favorite was your review of The Gold Experience as that is one of my favorite albums. I’m so excited for 2019.”
– Ana H (Journey of PF 2018)

“I think this is my favorite video you have created concerning Prince. It is apparent that you dug deep and gave this topic a great deal of thought. You highlighted concepts and traits of Prince that are quite thought-provoking and through his music, his lyrics, his moral stances…..he teaches. Unorthodox in many ways, but so impactful…. thank you PF for this enlightening video! I throughly enjoyed it ”
– Teresa H (Prince was a Modern Sage)
