Saturday, February 11, 2017, MojaMoja celebrated the life and musical legacy of Prince with intimate performances by some of his most talented protégés. Featured artists included GRAMMY Award nominee Támar Davis from The Voice on NBC, DJ Rashida, Alex Isley and Sidibe, who's song "I'm Only Dreaming” was featured on Prince's personally-curated Purple Pick of The Week playlist on TIDAL before his sudden death last April.

Along with the tribute to the iconic artist, guests savored menu items inspired by recipes created by GRAMMY Award nominee, certified chef and saucier Kelis, who is serving more than milkshakes now in her recent cookbook My Life on a Plate and ob her Cooking Channel TV series Saucy and Sweet, topped off with sauces from her product line Bounty and Full.

Taste buds were tantalized and spirits were uplifted by performances that benefited the MojaMoja Innovation Fund. Artists donate performances to raise awareness and funds for the MojaMoja Innovation Fund at Liberty Hill Foundation; which supports initiatives and nonprofits empowering underrepresented, multicultural youth to pursue education, internships and job preparedness opportunities in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM).
