I remember listening to my father play your purple rain. I grew up on the foundation of music that is Prince. You will be forever missed and you will live on in our hearts. Your talent goes beyond what we can say. You are history and you’ve laid the way to our present and future music. You are a legend. You are talent. You are dynamic. You are Prince.
Rest and peace and best wishes to you on your new journey away from earth.
You are missed.
Earlier this month, Prince said he wasn’t feeling well, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, and canceled at least one concert in the city. Some days later, he took the stage in Atlanta to perform. After that concert, the singer’s plane made an emergency landing, the singer’s spokesperson Yvette Noel-Schure told CNN. At the time she said, “He is fine and at home.”
Prince has won seven Grammy Awards, and has earned 30 nominations. Five of his singles have topped the charts and 14 other songs hit the Top 10. He won an Oscar for the original song score to the classic film “Purple Rain.”
