On April 21st, 2016, music lost a great talent known as Prince. The legendary musician died in Chanhassen, Minnesota. There is no statement of why or how he passed away as of yet. There are many legendary moments by Prince that I could place here, but it’d be difficult to choose just one. So I decided to make a list of what made Prince, Prince:
- He was feminine, yet masculine all in the same time and he wasn’t afraid to do it while performing either:
- His insane guitar solos/ His ability to steal the show:
- His constant challenging of culture, gender and sexuality:
- Last but not least, Purple Rain (song/movie):There are hundreds of other examples that could be given. There are certain accomplishments that artists’ achieve which is why they’re placed here. Prince on the other hand is different. There’s no one accomplishment that overshadows everything else in his career. Prince himself WAS a moment for music and he’ll live on forever.
