It was sad to hear of another pop icon passing away with Prince’s recent departure. I hope I don’t have to do any more tributes to musical icons or anyone else this year but you never know, life can be very unpredictable. First Bowie, now Prince….
I don’t have much more to add to the millions of words already published recognising Prince’s formidable talent both as a musician (he could play almost any instrument) and his talent as a lyricist. My favourite of his musical poems being, Kiss, Purple Rain, When Doves Cry and 1999. Jolan the runner up to the UK version of ‘The Voice’ did a phenomenal version of Purple Rain check out the video below which will hopefully be accessible by those of you outside of the UK.
With all the speculation still going on about how Prince died we should remember him as someone who touched millions and millions of lives in a positive way and celebrate him as a true artist and icon. RIP Prince we will miss you.
