“Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life”

-Prince

 

Yesterday’s news of Princes passing has struck everyone right where it hurts the most, the heart.

 

Prince was able to use music as a bridge to bring all types of people together. Just one listen and you knew it was something special. Even if Prince was not what we normally of think as rock, his skills on the guitar left everyone in awe.  His 2007 Super Bowl performance of Purple Rain was epic. In a literal downpour during the performance, all he said was “can you make it rain harder”? Well today, as a world sheds tears for a fallen idol, it is raining a little harder. 

 

We may never get a performer like Prince again, so in his honor, take a moment today to remember, listen, and relive the brilliance that was Prince.
