Thousands gather at Harlems State Office Building on Monday, April 25th for a memorial celebrating the home going of music icon Prince. Celebrating his legacy of music the Harlem way, in peace and love, Harlem parties till the sun goes down, and reminisces, after dark while the giant screen shares flashes of his life, performances and the music we all adore.
