Girl Power Hour Host and Author, Toshia Humphries, recently released a new book, The Sky Was All Purple: A Collection of Love for Prince. This book contains stories of love and gratitude shared by contributors, worldwide, and a raw reflection vulnerably shared by the author, herself. 

One contributor, Lawrence Bowman, shared a unique account which seemingly provides the greatly needed comic relief in the book. His story and memories of Prince will be shared on the show - a first-time at-length interaction between author and contributor.
