Spike Lee is a hardcore Prince fan, and he showed it Thursday night.

The director hosted a block party in Brooklyn for anyone who wanted to come and celebrate the life of Prince, who was found dead that morning.

A packed crowd showed up to dance, sing along, and say goodbye to their idol.

See what it was like below.


Spike Lee threw the block party in his native Brooklyn, and he said 5,000 Prince fans showed up to sing and dance for the “historic” event.


Spike Lee himself did some singing and dancing.

There he is celebrating. The party was right outside the offices of Lee’s production company, 40 Acres and a Mule.


Fans showed off their purple and some face paint.
