    When Doves Cry😢🕊

    I don't have to write Prince Rogers Nelson a eulogy because he actually penned one himself in 1984 in the form of his #1 song, Let's Go Crazy.


    ��"Dearly beloved
    ��We are gathered here today
    ��To get through this thing called life
    ��Electric word life
    ��It means forever and that's a mighty long time
    ��The after world
    ��A world of never ending happiness
    ��You can always see the sun, day or night..
    ��In this life
    ��You're on your own
    ��And if the elevator tries to bring you down.
    ��Go crazy
    ��Punch a higher floor.
    ��Tell me?
    ��Are we ever gonna let the elevator bring us down?
    ��Oh no, let's go."
    Prince��

    Thursday April 21, 2016, the discovery was made that Prince had died in the elevator of his Paisly Park studio/home.

    A memorial and a real rainbow over Paisley Park the day after Prince passed away.��

    Personally, I was absolutely shocked, shaken, and chilled with disbelief that Prince was gone and that he had died in an elevator. Words to describe the emotion don't come easy. He was too young and I feel like a huge piece of my childhood died with him and with Michael Jackson as well. I suppose that it is common to ponder one's own mortality when someone dies, especially when that person is close to your own age. I can honestly say that I feel a deeper connection with some songwriters than I do my actual family.

    "I never meant to cause you any sorrow. I never meant to cause you any pain. I only wanted one time to see you laughing in the purple rain."

    There is speculation that Prince's death is due to an overdose of Percoset. Perhaps the pain that created such a music legend may have ultimately resulted in his death. I doubt that even Prince's most dedicated fans know much about the artist that made purple so famous.
    Prince was a man of few words. He often mumbled soft spoken words in interviews and most always hid his eyes behind mirrored sunglasses. Once, a dispute with his record label resulted in his writing the word, "slave" on his own cheek with a marker. Most of the time Prince let his music do the talking. An exception was his autobiographical film Purple Rain. Prince played a young musician who was truly in control on stage-every inch a brilliant rock star! He owned the the audience and the stage. Offstage, he lived a lonely life in his parents' basement where he tried to escape the abuse from his alcoholic father.

    ��"How could you just leave me standing alone in a world so cold? Maybe I'm just too demanding? Maybe I'm just like my father, too bold...
    Don't make me chase you
    Even doves have pride."
    Prince

    Prince's narration of Jack Nicholson's role as the Joker in Batman was nothing less than perfect. (1989)

    I am fortunate to have seen Prince play a live concert at Wright State Universities Nutter Center. It was an unforgettable experience. Prince was physically a small man but a passionate tornado of activity on the stage. His vocal range is rivaled by few. Prince was also a talented piano player but his electric guitar served a dual role onstage as his instrument and his dance partner. It was the solid kind of of performance that makes you blink at the end, like awakening from a dream. We are blessed that Prince shared his dreams with us in his songs. Millennial theorists predicted the end of the world in 1999. Prince was too busy dancing to care, he also predicted that the music would not end and released the party anthem 1999 in the year 1982.
    "Cuz they say two thousand zero zero party over,
    Oops out of time.
    So tonight I'm gonna party like its 1999!"

    "Everybody's got a bomb, we could all die here today. But before I let that happen, I'll dance my life away."
    Prince

    "It's a heartbreak and I was shocked. I didn't believe it as I found it so hard to believe. You know, in the journey of music, we as artists that create the reflection of society and reflect, really the people that really want to see a better world, a better people, a unity of people, all those things-as did his music do and will continue to do for those of us who listen to it-it's a heartbreak to lose a member of that army of love."
    Stevie Wonder
    Rolling Stone Magazine

    ��"You better live now. Before the grim reaper come a knocking at your door.

    ��We're all excited
    ��Don't know why
    ��Maybe it's cause
    ��We're all gonna die."

    ��And let me guide you to the purple rain!"
