Filed under: Music MinuteR.I.P.Prince

On Wednesday at 6:07 p.m. EST, radio stations around the country will honor Prince together by simultaneously playing Nothing Compares 2 U.

The idea began at KCMP 89.3 in the Purple One's home town of Minneapolis.

Director Jim McGuinn says "The Current" asked fellow stations to join them in playing the Prince-written song — turned into a smash hit by Sinead O'Connor — to "honor the man we called our friend," saying:

"Like no artist in our lifetimes, Prince united people with his music. Black, white, young, old, rich, poor, he cut across all boundaries with music that touched on rock, funk, soul, pop, R&B, new wave and jazz, and the world responded."

Nothing Compares 2 U begins with the lament, "It's been 7 hours and 13 days since you took your love away" (Sinead's version is 15 days); 6:07 on May 4 will mark exactly 7 hours and 13 days since Prince's April 21 passing.

WFUV New York, WXPN Philadelphia, and KEXP Seattle are among the stations that have already agreed to join in.

You can ask your local station to participate in the tribute as well!

Kesha Is Returning To The Stage For A Special Tribute Concert! See The Good Cause Bringing Her Back!

Filed under: Music MinuteKacey MusgravesKeshaSony

no title

We might not be getting new music from Kesha anytime soon due to her ongoing legal battle against Dr. Luke — but at least we can still see her perform!

The Tik Tok singer will make a return to the stage in May when she performs at Dylan Fest — a two-night celebration in honor of Bob Dylan's 75th Birthday!

The all-star tribute will take place on May 23-24 at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, and will feature over 30 artists performing the music legend's hits — including Emmylou Harris, Jason Isbell, Kacey Musgraves, and Wynonna & The Big Noise!

Kesha's name might stand out from the rest of the countrified lineup — but the pop star lived in Nashville with her mom as a child and performed a stripped down version of Dylan's Don't Think Twice It's All Right back in 2011.

Dylan Fest will not only celebrate the singer's birthday (May 24, 1941), but also the 50th anniversary of Blonde On Blonde, his first album release way back in 1966!

What's even better is the event will also benefit Thistle Farms — a Nashville-based charity that aids women who have survived prostitution, trafficking and addition. AH-Mazing!

This gig will mark Kesha's first public performance since a judge dismissed her case against Sony last week — and we couldn't think of a better reason for her to return to the stage!
