MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Prince’s former protege Sheila E. is coming to his hometown to play a benefit concert.

Sheila E. will perform Oct. 23 at Orchestra Hall with her father, percussionist Pete Escovedo, and youth performers from Minnesota.

The money will go to the Purple Philanthropy fund and made available to community organizations via grants.

Prince died April 21 of an opioid overdose. After his death, he was credited with a quiet activism that sometimes included anonymous donations to causes he deemed worthy.
