Sharon & the Dap Kings opened one of Prince's MSG shows in January 2011. Sharon, Binky Griptite and the Dap-King horn section also joined him during his encore performance of “A Love Bizzare.” Sharon said:

“Out of all my years coming up, I never got a chance to see Prince live, so sharing the stage with him at Madison Square Garden was a dream come true. It was an honor and a privilege to perform with him, and as you can see in the video [that no longer is public] I was on Cloud 9. He’s such a spiritual, humble, warm-hearted man and I feel blessed just to be able to meet him.”

Six months later Sharon and the band were playing a show in Paris when suddenly Prince returned the favor. Check out the video above!

Watch Sharon sing David Bowie (January, 2016) with Iggy Pop (in February, 2016), and with Lou Reed too.
