Prince was not only a great music artist and performer, many people don’t know that he was also a very humble humanitarian who secretly gave money to the family of Trayvon Martin according to The Rev. Al Sharpton.

Rev. Sharpton was he was surprised when he received a call from Prince about donating to the Martin family.

“I will never forget when he called me and said he had some funds he wanted to give to Trayvon Martin’s family,” Sharpton said. “Just out of the blue. Just out of the clear blue.”

Sharpton says that Prince wanted to keep his donation under wraps.

“He didn’t want anybody to know,” Sharpton added. “He didn’t even want Trayvon Martin’s family to know where the funds came from.”

“He didn’t want to get involved in partisan politics. He was very concerned about human rights,’ Sharpton said. “We spent hours talking about his concerns about technology and getting those skills to inner city youth.”

Sharpton said the Minneapolis-born musician once arranged for Eric Garner’s family to attend one of his concerts in Baltimore.

Prince Rogers Nelson will definitely be missed…
