LOS ANGELES, Calif. (FOX 11) - When Stevie Wonder took to the stage to sing "Purple Rain," the crowd, which numbered in the thousands, was ready to sing along! The concert was a freebie on the Spring Street side of LA City Hall. The night the entertainer died, the iconic building was showered in purple light. On Friday night, the street was showered in people with purple clothes and lots of images of Prince.
Most fans we spoke with didn't want to speak of Prince's death although the feeling of loss was definitely there. Irma Robinson couldn't hold back the tears as she tried to explain the impact of Prince's music had on her. Marva King, who used to work with Prince, says the sudden death was very difficult to handle. All of this while singer Eric Benét talked to the crowd of the uniqueness of the artist.
To some, the concert was a chance for a chance for closure. It was a few hours to remember.
