*Prince has donated $1.5 million to several charitable causes during his string of concerts at New York’s Madison Square Garden – a gesture that was mentioned this morning by his close friend, Whoopi Goldberg, on “The View.”

Prince marked the end of his residency at the historic venue on Monday by donating $1 million to educational charity the Harlem Children’s Zone, and a further $250,000 to both the American Ballet Theatre and the Uptown Dance Academy in New York.

Whoopi, who introduced Prince at Monday’s concert, told “The View” audience this morning: “I just had to shout it out because he’s very low key, but he’s going around, all over the country, as he’s touring, to find places where he feels he can help.”
