There’s been so many many MANY messages and tribute concerts since just like Thursday when Prince unexpectedly passed away that I wanted to say something. As with everyone else, I am still shocked. It is impossible to go to any store or even the supermarket without “Little Red Corvette” or one of Prince’s hits playing. It is also nearly impossible to find a single copy of “Purple Rain” in the record store or online but I’m sure an album collection is in the works as you are reading this.
Over the weekend tribute concerts happened already including covers by Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, Usher and likewise performers at Coachella and Brooklyn concerts. You can find touching messages from the likes of Lady Gaga, JLo, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, U2, Usher, Ceelo Green and the list that never ends over social media. Prince was a brilliant musician with a flare for fashion. Many of us grew up on his hits. This Prince won’t be forgotten..
