Lost it when I saw Prince's young face projected on the piano ... oh boy, I have no idea how I will ever learn to cope with this, I'm all sad again wilted ... just when I thought I was doing okay again, he should have been here with us still, music needs him, musicians need him, the world needs him ...

Yeah as soon as Prince's face came up on the piano I started crying...two months later and I'm still crying. Not sure if I'll ever stop.

I cried. Maybe it's just because I'm missing P as well, but there is something about the melody that's deeply princey too. It's simple, yet very evocative.

How long ago was she his fiancé though? I see she's using that to promote the song? It's a shame they never hooked up. I do wonder if she really took him seriously with he proposed to her? Anyone else know the full details?


Prince and Sheila were engaged throughout 1988 when they were on the Lovesexy Tour.I think the relationship ended in early 1989...the same time that Sheila left the Prince camp.

She said last night that she's working on a new Prince tribute album. This song is the first release from it. She says she has to finish it...

Beautiful and sad. Seeing her cry got me started again...I was never a huge fan of hers even as i acknowledge her talent but shes won me over these past couple days

I didn't really know Sheila E. before Prince, and certainly hadn't followed her career... UNTIL this performance. I'll be a fan of hers forevermore. She'll keep us in tune with the Purple One.

Bad idea watching this at work. I had to excuse myself, that was beautiful. I lost it as soon as I saw his face. Don't think this is something I can listen to often.

I almost lost it in the middle of the coffee shop today. I was tearing up the whole time. Like, when I saw her cry, and the lyrics, and the beauty of the music... it moved me to no end!

This tribute was great. Now, I'm going to have to back down for a while and regroup.

Is the symbol tattoo on her arm real? Has it been there long or since his passing..sorry for maybe asking about a well known fact but I' guess you can't blame a girl for missing some posts...

I saw it on her arm last night during the BET Awards, so yes, it's real nod

I think that was the point in the video where it all sank in for us... we look back at him at that age and say, "Wow, he was SO YOUNG and full of life..." But he had more experiences within his 20 something years at that point than many have in 50... which makes the image of him all the more raw and real.

She's working on another tribute album? I'm wondering if she had regrets because the last time they were together, she left him behind on that tour. When that person passes away, u can't tell them just how much they r 2 u.

Aww... must be really hard 4 her. sad sad

Update: I now have re-watched this video about 3-4 times, and ran it back to certain parts just to let myself cry. Seeing Sheila cry is so raw and heartbreaking. Two parts in particular made me cry. Number one is when she sings, "I don’t wanna wake up, I wanna be with you, Welcome to my world," And when she sings "...But I rocked your world, and somewhere deep inside you know you did the same." That's the part that cuts deep, because in that moment, I felt Prince telling Sheila that he loved her. Those lyrics are like an all-knowing passing glance being exchanged between the two of them, and it's up-close and personal. I love that she let us see that through her song. Maybe I'm mis-interpreting that lyric, but this is the image it brought to my mind when she sang it.

isn't she milking his death a little for commercial purposes? The Prince tribute on Sunday, immediately after the song/video is releases, a Prince tribute album ? Sounds to me like she's trying to make some cash ...

She's using the perfect timing to promote her song. Kind of a thin line she's walking. But I think that she also does have some regret probably because she didn't make peace with him while he was still alive.

It's too late now but all one can do is write about regrets

I think she is totally sincere and honouring him musically is what comes natural to her.

Making money surely wasn't on her mind whilst writing this song - at least it doesn't sound like that to my ears.

Video is touching and sad. Fact of matter is P rocked a lot of Worlds. She seem like Mayte; who seem to be still in love with P. But at least Mayte did get to be a wife for awhile. All this seem a little confusing, like wildgoldenhoney said, "regret not making peace while he still was alive."

Yup. That's why she's taking it so hard. Even harder than his ex wives it seems. That BET pic u can see her regret.

Stunning, beautiful, amazing and emotional.

So very emotional. She's in bits.

.

Sheila is great and very brave to show such raw emotion.

.

I hope this gets a lot of publicity.
