PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL along with Liv Warfield. took over KOKO In London for a private concert for Autism Rocks yesterday. The concert was by invite only with only a few tickets on sale to raise awareness for Autism.
We were asked by organizers to not publicize the event before it happened due to it being a private show and we all know what happened the last time Prince was in London so we could understand especially that it does not appear that the purple one will be in there for long with the Grammy's this weekend and him being teased as appearing at the award show in Los Angeles.
Prince & 3RDEYEGIRL tore up London yet again last night, February 2nd 2015, as they played a joyous set for a private charity event at the historic venue KOKO in Camden Town. Re-visiting the scene of one of their triumphant 'Hit and Run' shows from last year, Prince and the band (guitarist Donna Grantis, bassist Ida Nielsen and drummer Hannah Ford-Welton) took to the stage to play an astonishing set that turned KOKO into a massive Monday night party. At the organizer’s request, Prince and the band delivered an awe inspiring greatest hits collection to a rapturous reception from the capacity crowd.
Prince will also be doing another benefit for Autism Rocks scheduled for tonight in Dubai. We will have news on that after the show takes place.
After an outcry from Autism Awareness, J. Cole has apologized for his offensive lyric in Drake's "Jodeci Freestyle" song.
Cole made the announcement stating:
"he doesn't agree with the recent trend of pressure rappers have faced to apologize when they step over a perceived line, but in this case he feels he went too far in a verse he contributed to Drake's "Jodeci Freestyle."
"To the parents who are fighting through the frustrations that must come with raising a child with severe autism, finding strength and patience that they never knew they had; to the college student with Asperger's syndrome; to all those overcoming autism,"
"You deserve medals, not disrespect. I hope you accept my sincere apology."-DocFB
Diagnosis: Cole seems apologetic although at first it sounded like he doesn't like to apologize for lyrics like others have lately. I think Cole gets it and will write better lyrics going forward.
Jodi DiPiazza, who was diagnosed as autistic when she was two years old performed "Firework" with Katy Perry at "Night Of Too Many Stars" a fund raiser for autism hosted by "The Daily Show's" Jon Stewart.
Jodi is now 11 years old and Katy Perry is one of her favorite singers.
Jodi plays the piano during her duet. The moment meant a lot to Katy Perry.
She shared her thoughts about the performance via Twitter;
“I will never forget last night. It was the most important moment thus far of what I do.”
Heartwarming and heartfelt. Check out the performance above.-DocFB
Diagnosis: "Even brighter than the moon..."
