Prince Has Passed Away At 57

As if 2016 couldn’t get any worse, the one and only Purple Highness Prince has died over night. He was found unresponsive at his Paisley Park Estate in Chanhassen, Minnesosta, and was pronounced dead not long after. Not much else has been said right now, but the music world’s mourning is already palpable. Having already lost David BowieLemmyThe Eagles‘ Glenn Frey and Maurice White from Earth, Wind and Fire (not to mention Alan Rickman), this is too much for some of us.

Prince was just in the country for his A Piano & A Microphone Tour, and has been touring the US with the same show over the past few months. The music world has once again erupted in grief, with the elite sharing messages of their own personal tributes to The Purple One. We will update this as more news comes out. The world has lost a lot of its magic today.


It was Raspberry Beret. I was 4 years old. Yes, 4. I remember that I instantly loved it. “Mommy, who is that singing?” Seems weird but it’s true. More than a “once in a lifetime” artist… Just a ONCE IN FOREVER ARTIST. I’m still in shock as I write this and I feel this overwhelming grief. But, we should all turn away from that and HONOR this musician that changed all of our lives, our perspectives, our feeling, our whole being. From another planet? Probably. Royalty, for sure. Us worthy..? Laughable. They say don’t meet your idols… That they let you down. But, some of my greatest, funniest (yes, he was hilarious), and most prolific encounters and conversations about music came from the moments that I spent with him. It would be silly to say that he has inspired our music… It’s beyond that. He’s somewhere within every song I’ve ever written. I am sad, but I will smile when I think of every second that I had the fortune of being in his company. We have lost our greatest living musician. But his music will never die. Prince, NOTHING COMPARES… #RIPPrince
