Plans are underway to pay tribute to several greats, beginning this Wednesday.
April 21st marks the 5th anniversary of Prince’s passing... Paisley Park will open to the public for free to honor his legacy. The legendary artist’s ashes will be on display beginning at 9am and visitors who register for entry will be able to view them. There will also be a memorial at the main entrance to his creative compound for those who can’t enter and an online tribute for those who can’t make the pilgrimage to Minneapolis. And here at V103, we'll pay tribute to Prince all day long on Wednesday on air and online.
Next weekend, there will be a public memorial for DMX at Barclays Center in New York City on April 24th. Details are still being finalized but it's expected that there will be an online portion of the memorial.
And Kobe Bryant will be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame next month on May 15th with Michael Jordan doing the honors.
May we always remember and honor the memory and legacy of those who've gone before us.
