In the wake of icon Prince’s untimely death, Rev. Al Sharpton revealed to NYDaily News that Trayvon Martin’s family was one of those who the late-singer secretly donated money to. “I will never forget when he [Prince] called me and said he had some funds he wanted to give to Trayvon Martin’s family… Just out of the blue Just out of the clear blue,” Sharpton says. “He didn’t want anybody to know. He didn’t even want Trayvon Martin’s family to know where the funds came from.” In the many months since the musician’s untimely death, many stories have gone public about his quiet and consistent philanthropy.
