Prince’s ex-wives Manuela Testolini and Mayte Garcia joined together to pay tribute to the man they both loved by organizing a special memorial service Wednesday night.
The event, which took place at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Los Angeles, featured messages from Spike Lee, Cheryl Boone Issacs, Nile Rodgers and more. It also included performances from Esperanza Spalding and Janelle Monae.
Before the event, Spike posted his purple-inspired look for the evening on Instagram.
Others posted snapshots from the night as well.
Another memorial is still be planned by Prince’s family. They recently released a statement saying:
“We would like everyone to know that, contrary to previous and current reports, there has been no memorial, funeral or tribute service for Prince that was organized or authorized by the family or Paisley Park representatives. Together, the family is planning an official memorial service and public event to take place in the near future.”
