In case you don't know, Janelle Monae's new album "Electric Lady" is out now! She has taken over New York the past few days and to her surprise, got a singing telegram from the icon Prince!

The telegram-er sang the telegram to the lyrics of Prince, and Janelle did not know it was from Prince til afterwards to where she read the lyrics back and was extremely touched!

Check out the entire clip but the Prince telegram is around the 2 minute mark! What a pretty awesome way to show support for Janelle.

We also talked about "Electric Lady" on the Prince Spreecast with special guest Tamar Davis!-DocFB

  2. Janelle is simply amazing. A true artist. I know that Prince is extremely proud of her and all that she has done for her career. Staying true to the music-to her vision-and being a good person to top it all off. So happy for her :o) Go Electric lady!!!! Do your thang on the dance floor!
