The estate of Prince is objecting to the use of the late singer’s music at President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Minneapolis on Thursday, claiming that his representatives last year said that they would not play any of his songs at future events.
“President Trump played Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’ tonight at a campaign event in Minneapolis despite confirming a year ago that the campaign would not use Prince’s music,” the Prince estate said in a Twitter message. “The Prince estate will never give permission to President Trump to use Prince’s songs.”
They included a letter send last year to the estate’s lawyers, in which an attorney for Jones Day responded to their concerns and wrote that “without admitting liability, and to avoid any future dispute, we write to confirm that the campaign will not use Prince’s music in connection with its activities going forward.”
