Prince is still adding more awards to his collection even after his death.

The late legend was honored with the Top Soundtrack award on Sunday night at the American Music Awards.

His sister, Tyka Nelson, was on hand to accept the trophy on his behalf and got visibly emotional as she spoke.

"Prince defied the odds, a Black teen from Minneapolis with a goal to electrify the world, he had the courage to be different," Nelson said. "With his vision and god given talent, he is still one of the world's most respected and loved artists."

"What he told me is he wanted to be known as the world's most prolific songwriter. And with 984 titles to his credit and counting, he has done just that," she continued, to uproarious applause. "In the words of Prince, with love, honor and respect for every little thing in the universe, separation ceases and we all become one being singing one song."

Choking up, she continued, "I humbly accept this award. And me, my other Omarr, my brother Alfred, my sister Sharon, my sister Norrine, and my bother Duane, we'll keep this for you in Paisley Park. Until we see you again, this is for you."
