Mr. Nelson On The North Side

Mr. Nelson: On The North Side  


The journey to the top was a challenge for the shy kid from a broken home in North Minneapolis.

This is the story never-before-told. In a mixed-race neighbourhood during the Civil Rights movement, Prince found security, musical opportunities and encouragement at a local community centre called ‘The Way’. This influence, coupled with the culture and music of the era, gave Prince his passion for music and performance.

In this film, Prince’s mentor Spike Moss explains the origin and influences that shaped Prince’s musical skills. Musical icons such as Chuck D, Macy Gray and Chaka Khan recount never-before-told stories of Prince and how his unique creative form inspired them. His fans share personal experiences of his social media connections and private performances at Paisley Park.
