Prince’s es­tate tells Trump to stop us­ing his mu­sic

The Daily Courier - - ENTERTAINMENT -

MIN­NEAPO­LIS — Prince’s sur­viv­ing fam­ily mem­bers are ask­ing Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump to stop us­ing the late rock star’s mu­sic at cam­paign ral­lies.

Prince’s “Pur­ple Rain” has fre­quently been on Trump’s playlist at re­cent ral­lies, in­clud­ing last week in South Haven, Mis­sis­sippi.

A state­ment retweeted on be­half of the es­tate by Prince’s half-brother Omarr Baker said “The Prince Es­tate has never given per­mis­sion to Pres­i­dent Trump or the White House to use Prince’s songs and have re­quested that they cease all use im­me­di­ately.”
