Last night on the PRINCE Spreecast with DrFunkenberry & Seth Everett, a 20 year old fan from Texas named Jesse Jenkins, who has never seen his favorite performer PRINCE live before, and lives an hour from where the SXSW Festival was being held, was given a gift he was not expecting!
Jesse was hoping to see PRINCE at the SXSW Festival when it was announced that PRINCE would be playing. The $800 weekly pass and the VIP pass of $1,595 were really out of Jenkins budget. Samsung, who is hosting the party is giving away 250 tickets for people in Austin who have the Samsung Galaxy SII & SIII. Jesse unfortunately, does not have the Galaxy and did not have the $700 to purchase one.
Cue PRINCE & The NPG & 3rdEyeGirl to the rescue. Drfunkenberry announced during last night's show that he will be seeing PRINCE live this Saturday at SXSW courtesy of PRINCE & the crew!
Jesse's reaction was priceless. We are so happy for him we cannot even tell you. Check out him talking about not being able to go around the 56 minute mark and his reaction around the 58 minute mark! Priceless!
It felt great to play the role of Ellen and be able to surprise Jesse like that.
When we contacted Jesse later that night, he had this to say;
I can hardly get any sleep Doc! I'm just so amazed! I could not even expect this and the fact that it's at my front door..WOW! Such an amazing reality!
I want to thank PRINCE, The NPG, & 3rd Eye Girl for making it happen and allowing us to do it live on the show to catch Jesse's reaction!-DocFB
