Pop superstar Prince showed his appreciation for his young collaborator Janelle Monae sa pamamagitan ng sending a pag-awit telegram and bulaklak to her dressing room at a kamakailan gig.

The Purple Rain hitmaker collaborated with soul bituin Monae on a track for her new album The Electric Lady and he celebrated the record's release this buwan (Sep13) sa pamamagitan ng arranging a special surprise for the singer.

In video footage filmed for a Revolt Tv documentary, Monae is seen looking shocked to find a young man in her dressing room holding a card and bulaklak and pag-awit to her.

The messenger was reciting Prince's hit Kiss, which had been re-written as a personal tribute to Monae, but she didn't realise the significance of the pag-awit telegram until she asked him, "So where did you come from?"

He replied, "I came from Big mansanas pag-awit Telegrams and this is from Prince" before handing her the card featuring the star's personalised message. She gasped with delight before saying, "Oh my God. Prince sent you here? Are you f**king kidding me? Oh my God... Prince sent you here! He wrote this too?... Wow this is a message from Prince."

Monae then read out the song lyrics: "You don't have to be Janelle Monae to be electric, you just need to keep your dignity. When your life gets hectic, you don't need experience to get some clout, you don't need mga kaibigan like Prince to ipakita you what it's all about. You don't have to be rich to be Monae, you don't have to be a witch with a walis of hay. There ain't no particular rhyme that you need to say, you just need a copy of Janelle's Electric Lady."

She added, "Wow. Thank you Prince.Thank you so much. I just want to cry... I just really want to cry right now. This is too much for me to handle."
