The sudden passing of Prince is one of 2016's biggest upsets, in a tumultuous year that has seen numerous shakeups in the music industry (for better or worse.)
As it stands, mourning a legend like the R&B superstar will be an eternal event, and it can only bring the best out of those who he inspired. In light of this, Warner Music Singapore has teamed up with Hard Rock Cafe and Gold 90FM to present a night of celebration in honour of Prince.

Happening on June 3rd, the tribute show will take place at Hard Rock Cafe Sentosa — home of many unbelievable rock n roll artifacts — and will feature the likes of Dru Chen, Tim De Cotta, Roze Kasmani and Reuby.
Prince never cared what he came across as to anyone.
He was wild and free but also rooted in so much soul and funk that he made it cool for the masses.
He kept inspiring newer and newer cohorts of artists bringing forward the best elements of the genre and making it for the masses with his own touch."
— an excerpt from Tim De Cotta's tribute to Prince.
The show will officially begin from 8pm, where exclusive Prince merch will be given out through games conducted by Gold 90FM DJs, capping the night off with Rave Republic, whose DJ set will most assuredly allow you to party like it's 1989.
