Today the music world, the pop world the whole wide world lost an icon. Prince was found dead in his own home today. The Associated Press has confirmed through their Twitter account today.
Born Prince Rogers Nelson, the singer and performer known for his style and unique sound. Even in 2016, there wasn’t another performer that could duplicate Prince. Staying creative was his genre. His most remembered role will always be the movie Purple Rain. I can’t tell you what the plot was because I really just fast forwarded to the scenes with him performing. Besides Michael Jackson, Prince is a major music icon. Prince first number 1 album hit the Billboards the same year I was born, Literally grew up with this man.
According to Wiki, Prince was renowned as an innovator and was widely known for his eclectic work, flamboyant stage presence, and wide vocal range. He was widely regarded as the pioneer of Minneapolis sound. His music combined rock, R&B, soul, funk, hip hop, disco, psychedelia, jazz, and pop.
Reports say, He died at his Paisley Park recording studio and home in Chanhassen, Minnesota, near Minneapolis, on April 21, 2016, after suffering flu-like symptoms for several weeks.
I am personally hurt by his dead because when you grow up listening to music, you never forget those old songs your parents loved to play over and over. No one really cared that he had these long locks, wore leather pants and never said no to a pants suit. Before Nicki Minaj wore them, Prince made them fashion. Prince didn’t take no mess from the media and made sure he put his own creativity in all he did.
This weeks show will be a continuous loop of all of Prince’s classic and recent songs. The Pri Party will Celebrate the life of Prince and all of his greatness.
