Trivia

The show was organized by the city Board of Education in less than four days. Prince helped defray the cost of putting on the show, including providing a generator because the auditorium did not have enough electricity and hiring 14 extra crew members to set up the light and sound system. Details were kept secret and even the attendees didn't know who they were going to see until that morning. The audience was made up of visually impaired, hearing impaired, cerebral palsy kids and other handicapped kids.
