Celebrating 40 Years of Purple Rain

PRINCE released his sixth studio album on June 25th, 1984! Big Anniversary today! It was an album and a movie - and it will soon be a Broadway musical!

The movie, starring Prince as The Kid, made $70 million in the U.S! And the soundtrack spent 24 weeks on the charts with songs like When Doves Cry, Let’s Go Crazy and I Would Die 4 U. Prince and The Revolution received two Grammys for the album and Prince won an Academy Award for Best Original Score!
