LOURDES GARCIA-NAVARRO, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Lourdes Garcia-Navarro. Prince was not only a beloved musician, he was a generous host. He often opened his home to guests like comedian Eddie Murphy and his brother, Charlie. They tell a story about how he challenged them to a game of basketball, beat them and then served pancakes.
