DJ Polished Solid hosted, moderated, and co-produced a panel and screening of Prince’s Sign O’ The Times in Pfizer Audtitorium, 5 MetroTech Center, Brooklyn, at NYU Tandon School of Engineering on Thursday, June 8th, the day after Prince’s birthday at 6pm. This is the epitome of a little idea turning into something very special with the strong encouragement of some of DJ Polished Solid’s Prince friends, Mable Ivory of Louella Productions, Deanna Martin, and Ron Worthy of soulhead. With a LOT of help from these friends, this event surpassed expectations. A massive thanks goes to Mable Ivory for her vision and action!
