The legendary Prince created an iconic band known as, The Revolution. Not only did the early ’80s group incorporate an energy and sound that threw off music radio programmers worldwide, but The Revolution also consisted of overwhelming talent that embraced notions of diversity and inclusion with members from different backgrounds, ethnicities, races and sexual orientations.

She’ll be the guiding voice for a couple of months while Eddie becomes a new dad and goes on paternity break.
