Andre Cymone  Black Man In America EP 9/30

It was such an honor to be involved with giving back, spending time playing music and speaking with those very bright students at Anwatin, and to do it in honor of and on behalf of Prince on the day of his birth makes it that much more special because this is in fact how we began our musical journey.
I really have to thank my wife Katherine Copeland Anderson, Manuela Testolini and the In A Perfect World Foundation and last but certainly not least Principal Ellen Shulman for putting this whole thing together.
It's true one of the last phone conversation Prince and I had was specifically about doing something just like this for the community, it's one of the few things I know for a fact that he wanted to do and would have loved for us to do together.
Hopefully we can continue to do these types of things in the future and maybe even expand them and make it a nation wide program that can help more kids growing up in inner city communities have the opportunity to realize their musical or artistic dreams just like Prince, myself and others had when we were growing up.

I know Prince will never be forgotten as a musical icon but I and others want to do all we can to ensure that he will be remembered for the positive opportunities he gave and in his name will continue to give to others far into the future.

I was sweatin like a dog, like I was performing that's how hard I was gettin my party on... I wanna thank George and all the players past present and future for all the inspiration and bringin the Funk!!!!!! I also have to say it was beautiful to see a man doin what he loves and doin it with his family that's what love is and that's what a legacy is all about.... and Sir Nose, you da man!!! Love to all a y'all......

I can't put into words how much I really absolutely love Australia and hate saying goodbye. So many many beautiful people and amazing moments, so much love and inspiration. The shows were great, hearing from people who didn't know anything about my past but responded to my music and its message was simply a blessing, it's what it's all about. We all have our issues when it comes to living together, loving and respecting each other but our planet and the health of our earth is a priority and Australia at least at the moment seems to get that. Clean air, clean beaches, food you can trust, no GMO's, no drug commercials no airplanes flying over head spraying chemicals on their people. I already can't wait to get back there.
Thank you Australia and
Thank you @bluesfestbyronbay ❤️

A lotta magic happened in this castle, so many stories, so much history. It's always great to come home. 📷: @katherinecopelandanderson

" 'I wrote a song just for you,' declared Cymone, ripping into a new song about his hometown, delivered with the force and style he’s been honing since his high school days gigging with Prince in Grand Central" - @jaygabler @thecurrent
