Family and friends of Prince said a “loving goodbye” to the music icon on Saturday in a small private ceremony after his remains had been cremated.
His publicist Yvette Noel-Schure said the celebration of his life included his “most beloved” family, friends and musicians. She said a musical celebration will be held at a future date.
The list of people who attended was not announced, but Prince’s sister Tyka Nelson and brother-in-law Maurice Phillips were seen on the grounds of Prince’s estate Paisley Park, as well as friends such as percussionist Sheila E. and bassist Larry Graham.
Some of the hundreds of fans who congregated at Paisley Park Saturday got a memento of Prince.
He was briefly hospitalized a week ago, suffering from flu, after his plane made an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois.
