Just Another Day In SouthLA

Prince Tribute on Grand Park Lawn Tonight!


Los Angeles has been finding many varied ways to honor the legacy of Prince since his unexpected death last week—from purple rain at LACMA to a City Hall illuminated in his signature color. Now a (presumably purple) City Hall will host a special memorial service for the beloved musical icon on its south lawn. The LA Times reports that the public event will be held on May 6 from 5 to 8 p.m.

The memorial is being organized by activist and community organizer Najee Ali and will be sponsored by LA City Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson. Ali explained to the Timesthat the event isn’t meant to be a downer. “It’s not a time to mourn but a time to pay tribute to his legacy,” he said. “We’re expecting a big party on the grass next Friday.”
