Horizon Foundation Sounds of the City: New Power Generation – Featuring the Music of Prince
Horizon Foundation Sounds of the City, NJPAC’s free outdoor music series in Chambers Plaza, presents New Power Generation in a concert featuring the music of Prince.
New Power Generation, Prince’s backing band through the 1990s and 2000s, reunites for this tribute to the late superstar’s epic body of work. Spearheaded by keyboardist Morris Hayes (who also served as Prince's musical director for many years), the re-formed New Power Generation features many members of the original band, joined by charismatic vocalist Mackenzie. Their performance is a high-energy musical kaleidoscope that pays tribute to Prince’s most iconic hits, including songs like “Diamonds and Pearls,” “1999,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” “Pop Life,” “Purple Rain,” “Kiss,” and a lot more.
Watch for MacKenzie on America’s Got Talent and check out his audition with Prince’s song “Nothing Compares 2 U.”
Opening for New Power Generation will be Newark singer and songwriter Angela Johnson.
