Mr Nelson on the North Side is a documentary about the early formative years of Prince Rogers Nelson.
It is a story never before told. It's a story not just for his fans (his “Fams” as he called them), but for everyone.
In a mixed-race neighbourhood during the the late 1960s, when Civil Rights protests were rocking America, a young Prince found security, a community and opportunities to start a career in music at a local community centre, called “The Way.”
The influence of mentors at The Way, together with the culture and music of the era, gave Prince his passion for music and performing.
In Mr Nelson, Prince’s mentor, Spike Moss, explains the origin of Prince’s dedicated work ethics and musical skills, and how he built the foundation from which to launch his career into the stratosphere and become the greatest of performers.
Music icons such as Chuck D, Macy Gray and Chaka Khan recount never-before-told stories of Prince the performer and Prince the man, and how his unique creativity in turn inspired them to do their best work.
His fans share their personal connections with Prince Rogers Nelson through social media interactions and the famous, private performances at Paisley Park.
