Just a little bit more Prince.

A couple of years ago we did an live event at the 92nd Street Y in New York City.

We had Misty Copeland, the ballerina, as one of our guests. During the event, Copeland talked to me about working with Prince.

Prince asked her to perform for him during his live tour and also starred in the music video for his cover of “Crimson and Clover” in 2009.

Click the audio player above to hear Copeland talk about that experience.
