The world recently bid farewell to a music legend.
Prince was found dead at his Minnesota home last April 21st and TMZ came out with the breaking news as the media world followed suit. His body was later cremated and there was a private ceremony held in his honor together with some of his closest friends and family.
The world mourned the death of the music icon, people ranging from loyal fans to past and present music artists alike shared their personal thoughts and sentiments about his loss.
One of music’s greatest innovators, Prince revolutionized the industry with his flamboyant style, eccentric sexuality and musical genius.
He blended funk, rock, psychedelia, soul, R&B and pop, a thing he could do in his sleep. He infused different genres and created incredibly smooth transitions – he made it look easy, he effortlessly made it sound phenomenal.
The guy went out there and disregarded genre roles and categories to form one of the most creative styles in recent memory.
A global sensation in his own right, nobody did it like Prince, one of the best-selling artists of all time. And oh yeah, how can we forget his role in Pop culture?
What Prince did to break racial and cultural stereotypes is surely one of his best lasting legacies. His influence goes far beyond what he did for music, he did so much more for the world. His influence will last forever.
He also created his own brand of sexy. Prince flaunted his sexuality like no one else, women loved the guy and he loved all the ladies back (Watch out, all you virgins in heaven).
The fame, the wealth, the recognition, the ladies; was there anything the guy didn’t have?
The world’s going to miss you, Prince. Here we all are practically begging God to let you perform one last time.
