Prince followed the work of Sounds of Blackness from very early on in their career. And when the industry tried to minimize the incredible group into one genre of music or ask them to change their name, Prince would call director Gary Hines at 3 a.m., and say, "Gary Hines?" "Yes, Prince?" "If you're going to be 'Sounds of Blackness' you need to be Sounds of Blackness." "Okay, Prince."
