Prince: saying goodbye to a legend

On Thursday, April 21, the world lost a legend when Prince Rogers Nelson was found dead in his Paisley Park Minnesota compound. 

And despite the weight of the word, “legend” hardly seems to do him justice. Unlike so many “talents” today, Prince was more than just a performer. He was a songwriter, a producer, a singer, and a one-man studio band.

But he was also so much more than a musician. He was a humanitarian. He was an advocate for race, sex, and gender equality. He was a lover, a rebel, and a trailblazer.

He will be forever missed.
