Prince's Studio DJ Opens Up About Pop Icon's Final Public Performance
Pop culture icon Prince passed away today at the age of 57.
Reports had suggested that the musician was battling the flu, but he appeared at an impromptu performance for approximately 200 fans at a dance party he hosted at Paisley Park in Chanhassen, Minnesota, on Saturday.
Prince's studio DJ, Michael Holtz, was there for that performance, which would end up being the superstar's last.
Holtz said that Prince appeared to be well and in good spirits, despite a somewhat raspy voice.
"Basically, he said, 'When you hear news, give it a couple days before you waste any prayers,' and he looked great," Holtz said.
He added that Prince spoke about being on the upswing and discussed going on tour again, so he assumed the musician was on the comeback.
"It's still a shock just to hear the news this morning of what was going on," Holtz said. "For all those who are out there, he was a great guy."
"Prayers and thoughts go out to all family members and fans out there."
