WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., April 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- "As the founder of Black Entertainment Television (BET) to which the musical genius of Prince contributed so much, I am deeply saddened by his untimely death. The music world and a world of fans will miss this musical genius. Prince was one of the most brilliant and creative artists and performers, and he was also one of the smartest business music guys I met.
I will miss his idiosyncratic and quirky ways which fascinated me during the times we met when I was running BET, and of course his indelible imprint on the world of music.
Purple Rain is falling all over the world today!"
