Remembering Prince

Prince-Grammy-2015-billboard-650

 

On April 21st 2016, the artist known as…. has left this world.

Prince is best known for hits like “Purple Rain,” “Raspberry Beret,” and “When Doves Cry.” But his songs were about more than partying. Prince was a long-serving vegan and a strong advocate of the abolition of the abattoirs. His song  « Animal Kingdom » from the album «The Truth» is very poignant. Please read Karen Dawn’s beautiful tribute

Prince was an activist and a secret philanthropist. If we may say, Prince was an example of a real karma yogi. Doing good, serving goodness, just for the sake of it.

Few individuals live up to their name, but Prince actually did. He was  better at being human than most of us are.

These days I can only listen to his songs in repeat mode. I am so grateful for the soundtrack of my teen years… Not only because indeed « Sometimes it snows in April » but mostly, because Prince’s massive life lesson was  you better live now  (Excerpt from « let’s go crazy » )

We’re all excited
But we don’t know why
Maybe it’s ’cause
We’re all gonna die
And when we do
What’s it all for?
You better live now
Before the grim reaper come knocking on your doors

On June 7th, 1958, a legend was born. His parents named him Prince Rogers Nelson

We remember the musical genius, the humble and compassionate human being.

And now Ancestor. May his homegoing be peaceful and full of music
