Prince performer Gabriel Sanchez raising money for American Heart Association at Saturday's Riverside Theatre show

When Prince performer Gabriel Sanchez returns to his hometown, Milwaukee, to Play the Riverside Theatre Saturday, he will not only be paying homage to a late music Icon.

Sanchez will also be raising money for the American Heart Association in tribute to his first costume designer, Rozzy Alexander, who died of a heart-related ailment.

"I like to give back for one thing," Sanchez said during a recent visit to the CBS 58 studios.

He had flown in the night before from the tour of his show "The Prince Experience" that he created in 2004, but which has picked up in tour dates since Prince's untimely passing last year.

A $20 dollar raffle ticket makes the holder eligible to win a Prince portrait, cloud guitar and a dinner at 5 O'clock Steakhouse for a guest along with Sanchez.

Sanchez will also be offering fans a behind the scene tour of the Riverside. It's what he calls behind the purple curtain.

Fans need to go to the Prince Experience Facebook page to enter.

When asked what he thinks the departed Prince would make of all this, Sanchez seems fairly certain.

"I think he would be happy," Sanchez tells CBS 58 Anchor Michele McCormack. "The whole band is trying to do his music justice. We're not out there winging it. I think he would say at least you're doing your job right."
