Prince the Legend

A true musician! With over 39 albums the forever evolving, undeniably talented Musical Icon Prince will be missed. "For You" debuted in 1978, that is nearly 4 decades of music! 

Just this year Prince announced he was writing a memoir, tentatively titled "The Beautiful One", which was scheduled for a 2017 release. Prince won many awards from 7 Grammy's, 4 MTV Awards, and an Image Award just to highlight a few!
Lets not also forget his song writing capabilities with Billboard Top Hits like:
The Bangles, "Manic Monday" 
Sheila E., "The Glamorous Life"
Alicia Keys, "How Come You Don't Call Me"
Chaka Khan, "I Feel for You"

In 2010, Prince featured in TIME magazine's 100 most Influential People in the World and he finished the year with an induction into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Prince was also crowned PETA’s Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity. 

Lyrics from his song “Animal Kingdom”
No member of the animal kingdom nurses past maturity
No member of the animal kingdom ever did a thing to me
It’s why I don’t eat red meat or white fish
Don’t give me no blue cheese
We’re all members of the animal kingdom
Leave your brothers and sisters in the sea

According to the notes on his first album "For You" Prince produced, arranged, composed and played all 27 instruments on that album. Prince was The King of re-inventing his sound! His music is uplifting, colorful and funky! The world may have lost a creative icon but his legacy will live on.
