It took a few days before I cried over Prince being gone. I spent the first few days in disbelief about the news of his passing, despite, watching all the videos posted about Prince.
Then today, I was watching Elton John’s Tribute to Prince and I couldn’t stop the tears. Why the Elton John Tribute? I don’t know. Maybe, it was just enough time for the reality of Prince’s death, finally, sinking in.
The passing of Prince is the first celebrity loss for me. I’ve listened to his music since I was a teenager and when I found out he was in concert while living in Texas I was so excited to see him.
I lost all of Prince’s music that I had when my Mp3 player broke. The only place I have it now is on my Amazon music account. I’ve been listening to his songs 24/7. He was so unique and daring along with his talent. This is why Prince was so appealing to me, because he was a rebel and did what he wanted.
Despite being a rebel, Prince was very giving, which no one knew about until his death. Prince’s long-time friend Van Jone’s interview with CNN.
Prince was not just a music sensation, but a Star with a Huge Heart helping friends, family and making a difference in people’s lives.
