E lohe hou ʻia ana ka leo o Prince.

ʻO ia aʻela kekahi poʻo nūhou o kēia lā, ka lā 9 o ʻApelila, he Pōʻalima. Welina e nā makamaka heluhelu. ʻO Ke Aolama kēia a penei ka nūhou.

Ua kī aku nei ʻo Phillip Adams i ʻelima mau kānaka a make i ka Pōʻakolu nei ma Kalolaina  Hema. A ma hope mai, hoʻi akula ʻo Adams i ka hale o kona mau mākua, a kī ihola iā ia iho a make. ʻO nā kānaka āna i hoʻomake ai, he kauka, ʻo Robert Lesslie a me kāna wahine, ʻo Barbara, a me kā lāua mau moʻopuna ʻelua, he ʻeiwa makahiki o kekahi, a he ʻelima makahiki o kekahi. ʻO ka lima o ke kanaka i kī ʻia a make, ʻo James Lewis, he limahana ʻo ia ma ka hale o ka ʻohana Lesslie. Ua kī ʻia kekahi kanaka, a aia ʻo ia ma ka haukapila me nā ʻeha pōkā kūkonukonu. He mea pāʻani pōpō peku ʻo Adams ma mua. Ua pāʻani pōpō peku ʻo ia ma ke ʻano he loea no nā makahiki he ʻelima. ʻAʻole i maopopo ke kumu a Adams i kī aku ai i ia mau kānaka.

He pā hoʻokani hou i piha i nā mele a Prince ke kūʻai ʻia. Ma ka lā 30 o ka mahina ʻo Iulai e hemo ai. A ʻo ka inoa o ua pā hoʻokani hou lā, ʻo “Welcome 2 America.” He ʻumi kūmālua mele o ia pā hoʻokani a ua ʻoki ʻia ma ka Hale ʻOki Leo ʻo Paisley Park i ka makahiki 2010, ʻaʻole naʻe i hoʻolaha ʻia ma mua. Ua make ʻo Prince ma muli o ka pākela ʻai lāʻau i ka makahiki 2016. Mai ka makahiki 2010 a i ka makahiki 2012, mālama aku nei ʻo Prince he 80 ʻaha mele a ʻoi ma ka inoa like o ka pā hoʻokani ʻo “Welcome 2 America” akā, ʻaʻole naʻe ʻo ia i hōʻike i kāna kumu i hoʻolaha ʻole ai i ia pā.

Eia mai kā kākou ʻōlelo noʻeau,

Hāʻale i ka wai a ka manu.

ʻO ia hoʻi, he kanaka uʻi.
