NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. So this is what it sounds like when doves cry. Divinity died earlier this week at the age of 28. She was a white dove that belonged to Prince and lived in the atrium of his former home, Paisley Park. Doves were a big part of Prince's design and artistry. Divinity provided ambient singing on his 2002 song "Arboretum." The singer's estate says it will introduce a new generation of doves soon. It's MORNING EDITION.
