If you look enough throughout history, I am sure you can find a sad event somewhere, anywhere in the world, every single day. Today, we lost a music legend!!
He rose from the bad neighborhoods of Minneapolis, Minnesota in the early 80’s to become a music legend. Today it has been officially reported that Prince, 57, has died.
When I lived in The Twin Cities I used to sing his song, Purple Rain, at karaoke bars around Bloomington, Burnsville and Apple Valley. I met a woman in Bloomington at David Fong’s Chinese Restaraunt and every Thursday I would be there singing karaoke and she without fail would request Purple Rain. I only wish someone had recorded me singing it so I could share it with you all.
It’s another sad day in the music world, but Prince did leave his legendary mark before leaving us so soon. May his music live on long after today, rest in peace, Prince.
