Prince says, “Wait a few days before you waste any prayers."

The artist was hospitalized early Friday morning in Illinois, but last night he gave a speech and played a little piano at Paisley Park, according to the Star Tribune.

The event was announced on Twitter as a "dance party", but Prince is known to be a bit mysterious when it comes to appearances.

He popped in after midnight, two hours into the dance party with DJ Pam the Funkstress, Star Tribune reported.

Prince's appearance lasted less than five minutes, Star Tribune said. He played "Chopsticks"and a brief instrumental number on his new purple Yamaha piano.

He also showed off a new purple guitar, which he did not play.

About 200 fans got to see him perform for a mere $10.

Earlier on Saturday, Prince celebrated Record Store Day by hitting up Electric Fetus in Minneapolis. He tweeted about a new purchase, Stevie Wonder's "Talking Book".
