On April 21st, the world lost one of the most outspoken and enigmatic musicians known all around the world. Prince Rogers Nelson was a multifaceted man, he did everything from play over 30 instruments to producing his own movie. From the moment that Warner Bros. signed him at the age of 18, Prince showed the world that the best way to be was yourself. Paving the way for individuality by showcasing his, Prince stood out in everything he did. He was one of the best selling artists of all time, selling over 100 million albums worldwide. His tours sold out all around the world. He has been hailed as one of the most influential artists in the world, has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame(he was nominated and won the very year he became eligible), has won seven Grammys, a Golden Globe, and an Academy Award.
This kid from Minneapolis grew up focused on music, followed his dreams and influenced the world. He didn’t bow down to conventional things, he openly defied them and made his own definitions.
Rest in Peace, Prince.
