Prince’s Paisley Park home in Minneapolis is set to be turned into a museum, according to the late musician’s brother-in-law, Maurice Phillips.
“We will turn Paisley Park into a museum in Prince’s memory,” Phillips told the Sun. “It would be for the fans. He was all about the fans — this would remember his music, which is his legacy.”
Prince died last Thursday at the Paisley Park estate. An autopsy was conducted, but the cause of death has yet to be announced. His remains were later cremated.
Family and friends of the artist held a private memorial to celebrate the life of the music icon on Saturday.
“It was very somber,” Sheila E., Prince’s longtime collaborator, said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
“What was challenging yesterday was listening to his music at a very low, soft volume and the room very low in lights and everyone just taking a moment, just sitting there, kind of going, ‘Wow,”‘ Shelia E. went on.
Prince’s family is also preparing a musical tribute to the late musician, where fans will be able to pay their respects.
“I’m supposed to be the one musical director to put his tribute together with all of the original people and we hope that that happens,” said Shelia E.
The tribute will take place near Minneapolis.
