In addition to performing at the Dakota, Shelby J will be part of Celebration 2017 this week at Paisley Park, marking the one-year anniversary of Prince's death.
Incredibly, for the full year of 2016, Prince sold more albums than any other artist - even Adele - with 2.23 million copies sold. The film was Prince's acting debut and highlighted his talents as an artist and performer, and featured several long concert scenes where the music was recorded live for the film's soundtrack.
A street party will take place outside First Avenue, the club he made world famous in "Purple Rain", and the Minnesota History Centre is staging a special exhibit of memorabilia.
Prince was one of a number of prominent musicians to die in 2016 including George Michael, Leonard Cohen and David Bowie - whose "Heroes" Prince covered in a final concert.
Mr Parke said he left Paisley Park following the birth of his son in 2001, but would forever be grateful for the opportunity to work at close quarters with one of his musical heroes. Prince asked the Amsterdam crowd to sing along and the Paisley Park audience followed suit. Also on the docket: panel discussions featuring such speakers as his old bandmates think Lisa (Coleman) and Wendy (Melvoin) from "Purple Rain" and The Revolution along with many more. Prince, who had a famously fraught relationship with the music industry, past year announced a deal through which Tidal would exclusively release the prolific star's album "HITnRUN Phase One". Only Prince could have ever pulled off that white ruffled shirt with the purple jacket and the studded trousers.
As part of the commemoration, the Interstate 35W Bridge that crosses the MS in downtown Minneapolis will be lit purple on Thursday and Friday.
