📌She's co-founder (along with Lynn Mabry) of the "Lil' Angel Bunny Foundation", an organization that "provides abused, abandoned and severely emotionally disturbed children compassionate care by implementing an alternative method of recreational and education therapy through music and the arts and funding special services and programs that assist the needs of these children using these fundamental methods".
🎵Six - Trivia:
📌While the track's title is Six (written), the single's title is 6 (numeric). In 1987, Prince would often introduce interpolations of this song with a short rap stating "I've got a brand new dance", which would later end up on Cross The Line. The "Bizarre!" sample used in the 6 (The End Of The World Mix) version is originally from Our Bizarre Relationship by Frank Zappa (from Uncle Meat, 1969). •
🎵Eric Leeds - Work With Prince:
📌Eric Leeds was introduced to Prince in 1984 by his brother Alan Leeds who was working for Prince as a tour manager since early April 1983.
Alan had mentioned Eric to Prince and played him cassettes of his playing, so when Prince was looking for a saxophone player to play on The Family project he asked Alan to call his brother and ask if he was interested in flying from Atlanta, where Eric was living at the time, to Minneapolis to do some recordings. •
🎵Letter 4 Miles:
📌The track was a tribute to Miles Davis, who had died two days before, although Michael B., who was the only other musician present at the session, wasn't aware that this was a tribute, and wasn't aware of the title. Horn overdubs by The Hornheadz were added in February 1992, also at Paisley Park Studios. •
