Those who follow Lewis Hamilton (the Formula One racing driver) would be surprised to find that he is a fan of Prince(the American singer, songwriter and musician). But its not just love for the artist’s talent that has had Hamilton spend 100,000$ on the golden stratocaster. The auction in which the guitar was sold was to help fund arts, education and environment. The proceeds benefit the Harlem Children’s Zone – a community that supports more than 17,000 children.
Prince mentioned that it would be hard to part with his Guitar since it was a personal favorite. But we have no doubts that the one time Formula One World champion (2008) will be taking good care of the guitar.
The One-of-a-kind Fender Stratocaster, fully gold-plated from the top of the headstock to the bottom of the electric guitar’s signature solid body.
Good going Prince – we just hope all celebs chip in ; as MJ said, we can all make the world a better place.
