On November 18th, The Town Hall presents Prince: The Beautiful Ones, a tribute event to celebrate Prince’s legacy and the launch of his memoir THE BEAUTIFUL ONES. The evening features performances by the NEW POWER GENERATION and special musical guests. Speakers include filmmaker SPIKE LEE, Prince’s renowned editor CHRIS JACKSON, and DAN PIEPENBRING, who was handpicked by Prince to co-author the book. This exclusive event is directed by artist/activist GBENGA AKINNAGBE and presented in partnership with Strand Books. All ticket sales include a hardcover copy of THE BEAUTIFUL ONES (Penguin Random House). All proceeds from the event go to Harlem Children’s Zone.
THE BEAUTIFUL ONES is the only memoir written by Prince, the American artistic visionary—singer, songwriter, musician, producer, actor, and filmmaker. Originally acquired from Prince in 2016, this newly envisioned memoir features never-before-seen photos, original scrapbooks and lyric sheets written in Prince’s own hand, and the early pages of the memoir Prince began writing before his death, framed by an introduction from Dan Piepenbring, the writer handpicked by Prince to collaborate on this project. World rights were acquired by Chris Jackson from Esther Newberg and Dan Kirschen at ICM Partners. The memoir is being published in an exclusive partnership and in collaboration with the Prince Estate.
