(CNN) — New information in the investigation of the death — and life — of music icon Prince. The artist, who was having some health issues in recent weeks, was a devout Jehovah’s Witness, and some are wondering if his religion played a part in his choosing to receive treatment. The Jehovah’s Witness Kingdom Hall, St. Louis Park Congregation, was Prince’s home church for the past decade. Prince was baptized there in 2003 and embraced it. He studied his Bible, marking it with post-it notes. Here, Prince asked to go by the name of Brother Nelson — his legal last name — dutifully knocking on doors monthly. Elder James Lundstrom says he befriended Prince 14 years ago. He accompanied Brother Nelson on his ministry, and in one instance, a woman “probably in her early 40s” came to the door. “He has a nice presentation, and in the middle of it, the woman says, ‘Excuse me, but has anyone told you that you look a lot like Prince?’ He looks at her, and says, “It’s been said. Going back to my m..
The 1980s British pop band Culture Club will perform in concert at the Blaisdell Arena, Sunday, June 26. Tickets will go on sale 9 a.m. Monday, May 2. Fronted by the gay icon Boy George, Culture Club were one of the biggest pop bands of the ’80s, racking up nine Top 10 singles in the US. Buoyed by the band’s first smash hit, “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me” and follow-ups “Time (Clock of the Heart)” and “I’ll Tumble 4 Ya,” by the time their second album “Colour By Numbers” was released in the autumn of 1983, Culture Club were the most popular pop group in the world. The album spawned the massive hit “Karma Chameleon” that further cemented the band’s top spot. Other singles from the album included “Church of the Poison Mind,” “Miss Me Blind” and “It’s a Miracle.” Culture Club performing on the set of the Today Show in New York City on July 2, 2015.

NEW YORK (AP) — It was during a musical high – a rhapsodic rendition of “Purple Rain” – that Prince turned to his drummer, Sheila E., and asked her to marry him. “In the midst of that song, you sometimes forget where you are,” Sheila E., a former percussionist and vocalist with Prince whose real name is Sheila Escovedo, said in an interview Friday from Minneapolis, where she’d flown upon hearing of Prince’s death. “You’re playing and you close your eyes and you don’t realize that there are other people in the room. I opened my eyes and at that same moment he turned around because musically we had hit a place where we were at a high, and he proposed to me.” The 58-year-old musician said she was coping with the loss of her former fiance – the two never married, but had a long collaboration – by trying to remember some of the more amusing times with Prince. “Thirty-eight years of him and I being together, there’s just so many memories good and bad,” she said. “It’s a pit in my stomach..
Honolulu FBI special agents arrested a man claiming to be a concert and special events promoter for wire fraud Monday morning at his Waimanalo home. At approximately 6:30 a.m. April 25, Turk Cazimero, 56, was arrested without incident at his home on Nakini Street. He purports to be a promoter who does business under the name “Hawaiian Hurricane Productions.” Following his arrest, FBI agents transported Cazimero to the FBI office in Kapolei for processing. He was then turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service to await his initial federal court appearance, which is expected to be at 2 p.m. Monday. Cazimero was charged, via a sealed federal grand jury indictment on April 20, 2016, with three counts of federal wire fraud, a crime with a statutory maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison per count. The indictment alleges that Cazimero devised a scheme to defraud multiple Hawaii families by seeking investments in several non-existent concerts and special events he cl..
