The Prince Estate teamed up with YouTube for COVID-19 relief. “Prince and the Revolution: Live,” will stream for three-days on the video platform. The legendary concert was filmed toward the end of Prince's “Purple Rain” tour in Syracuse, NY on March 30, 1985. The event kicks off on Thursday, May 14 and will stream through 11:59pm on Sunday, May 17. Viewers are able to make donations which will be matched by Google (Google.org will match $2 for every $1 up to $5M). Money raised will go towards the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization.
This is a fundraiser and will hopefully raise a lot of money to help this crazy situation that we are living in.
To celebrate the streaming release of Prince and the Revolution: Live, The Prince Estate and YouTube will host a watch party on Thursday, May 14, at 7 p.m. CDT. An hour before the watch party, at 6 p.m. CDT, fans will have the opportunity to participate in a special pre-stream Q&A with Revolution drummer Bobby Z., moderated by Andrea Swensson of Minnesota Public Radio’s 89.3 The Current.
Prince and the Revolution: Live will be available on Prince’s official YouTube Channel for three days only (through 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, May 17). In collaboration with YouTube and Google, the streaming event will run in support of the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the @who (powered by @unfoundation and Swiss Philanthropy Foundation). Any viewer donations will include a matching component from @google (Google.org will match $2 for every $1, up to $5 million).
