Radio Stations Come Together To Pay Nationwide Tribute To Prince With Specially Timed Broadcast!

Filed under: Music MinuteR.I.P.Prince

no title

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!

So special and meaningful.

Miley's Wrecking Ball is balanced with Sinead's Nothing Compares 2 U to make a musical masterpiece for your ears to feast!

Miley Cyrus Warned About Getting Pimped Out! Read The FULL Letter From Sinead O'Connor HERE!

You definitely want to! Cuz it is LOADED!!

See, this all started when Miley Cyrus told Rolling Stone she thought her Wrecking Ball video was this generation's Nothing Compares 2 U — or at least it had been designed to be similar to it!

We mean, we guess they both zoom in close to the face, butttt….

As soon as Nothing Compares singer Sinead O'Connor heard word of the comparison, it would appear as if lil' tiny landmines kept going off in her beautiful mind. Cuz she disagrees!

Not only does she find Smiley's actions to be the opposite of female empowerment, she fears for Miley's long-term results as she believes it's very possible she's being pimped and exploited!

In an open letter she published on her website, Sinead said:

Sinead O'Connor's Son Rocks Out To Drums In The Middle Of The Night!

We all know how much of a legendary artist Sinead O'Connor is, but the mother of four also gave birth to some very talented kids, and she's not afraid to brag!

The Nothing Compares 2 U writer recently chatted it up about all four of her kiddies, but her youngest son, Yeshua stood out to her the most, she shared:

"They're all very musical. My son Jake is a chef and he lives in London, he's more into the production end of music. My daughter Roisin is almost 17 and she's mad for musicals, she loves musicals. My son Shane, he's only eight-and-a-half and he loves drums. But the rocker is Yeshua, the littlest… I think he's the rocker, he's the one who sneaks out of bed and plays my guitars in the night."

Like mother like son.

Hopefully Sinead's little man does take after her because we wouldn't mind having another hitmaker gracing us with their music!!

Would U?!?
