“We’re going to be having a good time,” Koppelman reportedly told Page Six. “There is so much to be done with this estate. There are vaults full of music.”
Fans may even be able to expect “a Broadway musical featuring Prince’s hits or a Cirque du Soleil show,” said Page Six. Koppelman notes Prince’s status as an icon, saying “his legacy should be honored.” He added, “Though his name was Prince, I always thought he was the king of music.”
It was reported by The Source last week that Koppelman was chosen along with L. Londell McMillan, owner of The Source and Prince’s attorney, by the Bremer Trust National Association to handle Prince’s estate. Koppelman, who was a longtime friend of Prince, remembers the singer in a positive light.
“He couldn’t have been sweeter,” he said. “He couldn’t have been more real.”
