In an interview with The New York Post, the artist’s manager Charles Koppelman said Prince left “vaults full of music” at his death — songs that could be released as a musical.

“Prince was an icon on the level of The Beatles and Michael Jackson, and his legacy should be honoured,” Koppelman said. “Though his name was Prince, I always thought he was the king of music.”

Cirque du Soleil’s show Love is based on the music of The Beatles. The production company also developed Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour which launched in 2011 and ended its run in 2014. — AFP-Relaxnews
