Legend Prince Dies: (Purple Rain) Tribute
I hesitated to use this platform to write about the passing of the young 57 year old Prince this week. Many news stations, magazines, social media settings have talked about this. I didn’t want to sound repetitive about what so many have said already.
In fact, Elizabeth Obih-Frank @ Mirth and Motivation has written a phenomenal article on the late Prince. She’s covered many aspects of the singers life. I believe her words best describe this great entertainer whose loss has touched so many. Please – click here – to stop by and read it. It’s extremely touching and informative.
My first memory of Prince was when my eldest daughter came into the kitchen singing ‘Purple Rain’. I enjoyed his music and his ever changing persona. One day, on my visit to the hair salon I turned into a Prince look-a-like. The hairstylist thought my hair would look fantastic in an Afro style. I’m always up for change. I did it. I had my hair cut in an Afro hairstyle.
It had grown a bit when this photo was taken. I can’t remember if I liked it or not. I guess I didn’t as I don’t have a great deal of photos to show it off. I do remember it taking a HUGE amount of time to grow out.
It’s been a devastating loss to the music world and his fans who enjoyed and appreciated his unique talent. This year has been a year of too many great losses of talented artists.
Goodnight Sweet Prince
Now cracks a noble heart.
Good-night, sweet prince;
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.
