Long Live Prince: Remembering A Musical Icon
Thursday, April 21st, was a day that shocked music lovers around the world. On that day, Prince, the Grammy-and-Oscar-winning singer and composer, was found dead at his Paisley Park estate. Tributes immediately started pouring in from all over the globe, and Facebook became loaded with memories of his music, his concerts and interactions with him. I worked this past weekend at my retail job, but all throughout the weekend, I thought about Prince’s passing. I was humming his songs while ringing up customers and cleaning around the register, and I remarked on his passing to several of the customers, all of whom had memories of his music as well.
