We told you to follow Hannah Ford's Facebook Fan Page for some goodies and she dropped one from rehearsal with PRINCE this morning. This time, video.
We asked you last time if "The water was warm enough for Donna", with many of you not understanding it. Donna Grantis is the new guitarist for the NPG and it appears this rehearsal is also her audition. We think she got the part!
"Screwdriver" is obviously a new song and is completely rocking! We LOVE the full band sound. We just want a longer version.
Thank you Hannah and PRINCE!
What do U think?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Interesting message during video.....
UPDATE: We had a studio version preview along with lyrics. It is not coming through the way it was intended and had to be taken down. Hope U guys enjoyed it while it was up....
Hannah Ford just unleashed a rehearsal jam of "I Like It There" through her Facebook Fan Page and it is hot!
During the last week of November 2012, Hannah Ford was invited to Funky Town, MPLS by the one n only and they recorded this rehearsal jam while there. Hannah is the latest addition to the NPG btw. Check it out!
Make sure to "Like" Hannah's Facebook Fan Page because you never know when some new rehearsal jams may show up there.

We are posting the rehearsal jam here with permission but do make sure to "Like" on Facebook and follow on Twitter for more....
What do U guys think of this latest rehearsal jam?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Donna, Is The Water Warm Enuff?
Here is the video for "Rock & Roll Love Affair" the new video by PRINCE featuring Andy Allo and Hannah Ford.
Jamie Lewis of Purple Music did say the video would be released this week and it did premiere on overseas television this morning. Purple Music has just officially put up the video on their youtube page.
Digging the video. Always like performance videos from Prince though.-DocFB
Fresh off a guest appearance at "Welcome 2 Chicago" with Prince, it looks like Hannah Ford will be making another appearance with the NPG.
She posted this on Twitter earlier:
"Tune in to Jimmy Kimmel on the 23rd to catch me with Prince and Andy Allo! It's gonna be HOTT! God is good!!! xoxo"
Hotness. The tickets for the outdoor TV performance/mini-concert sold out shortly after it is was posted.-DocFB
Diagnosis: They need to perform outdoors because the NPG would blow the roof off his studio!
With the news of Prince having a new guest drummer in Hannah Ford, we knew it wouldn't be long until news of an upcoming tour would be happening. Within hours, "Welcome 2 Chicago" appears to be happening.
Prince reportedly will be taking residency at the United Center in Chicago starting September 24th and and with tickets going on sale September 6th.
The residency will also be used to support Rebuild the Dream, the organization founded by Van Jones that seeks to “build strong vibrant communities and to fix our economy from the ground up.”
“We couldn’t be more excited about partnering with a legend like Prince,” said Van Jones, Co-founder and President of Rebuild the Dream. “Our economic system is broken. Rebuild the Dream exists to unite arts and organize into a potent force to support the Dreams of Our Communities. There are few artists who have Prince’s unwavering commitment to a vision of a sustainable, fair economic future.”
Rebuild the Dream is a platform for bottom-up, people-powered innovations to help fix the economy not just here in the U.S. but Globally as well. Using 21st-century digital technology, we advance highly inventive solutions that are designed to protect and expand our communities, while creating pathways to prosperity for those who are locked out of it. Our goal is to put People back to work–and pull our communities back together.
There is already an on sale page set up for the September 24th show on ticketmaster.com
Chicago and the Midwest, are you ready?-DocFB
