When I first saw the tweet, I didn’t believe it. I certainly didn’t believe the TMZ report either. Like Michael Jackson, Prince to me seemed immortal. When I saw a published report in the AJC, my heart dropped. Sure enough, moments later the internet was flooded with Prince mentions. Publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure who I love and respect immensely confirmed the news via a statement that her client, Prince had in fact passed away.
“It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning at the age of 57.”
Prince was a musical genius, a songwriter, producer and most importantly, a man who was spiritually intact. Through this heartbreaking news there is comfort in the fact that Prince’s spirit will live on forever.
