Soon, the iconic studio of Prince known as Paisley Park will open to the public as a museum. Earlier today, NBC’s Al Roker was in Chanhassen, Minnesota to take a tour of the museum for the Today Show.
During the tour, Al Roker met with two of Prince’s half-sisters, Sharon and Norrine Nelson. They told Roker that Prince had a plan to turn Paisley Park into a museum. Roker visited a variety of spaces in Paisley Park like Studio A, where Prince would record his music. Roker also visited the NPG Music Club, which was initially supposed to be a place where Prince would play basketball.
Roker also talked about a jazz album that Prince was working on before his untimely passing. According to the Roker, the album will be released at a later date.
