“I intend on giving the people an unforgettable Prince tribute experience, as close to the real deal as possible.”
He adds: “I hope to portray Prince as the multi-instrumentalist that he was, the agile, energetic performer that he was, and the generous entertainer that he will always be remembered for,” shares Ray,
In preparation for the tribute show, Ray says impersonating a musical icon such as Prince, who influenced a generation of artists, is “a massive honour”.
“Prince played virtually every instrument and what he brought to this life through his performances and his music, is an absolute blessing and privilege for me to bring to other fans of his music,” says Ray.
