Benefit 2 Celebrate Life

For the first time since she thought she purified herself in Lake Minnetonka, Apollonia, Prince’s love interest in “Purple Rain,” will return to the Twin Cities. She’ll appear at Bobby Z’s third annual Benefit 2 Celebrate Life for the American Heart Association, answering questions about the movie. A bunch of Prince tunes will be interpreted by “American Idol” finalist Paris Bennett, Atmosphere rapper Slug, members of the Sounds of Blackness and several Purple-connected musicians including keyboardist Dr. Fink, saxophonist Eric Leeds, singer Paul Peterson and, of course, Bobby Z, the drummer for Prince and the Revolution. Read an interview with Apollonia in Saturday’s Variety. Jon Bream
