A Tribute to Prince

As the world mourns a music legend, creative genius and talent wonder; we pay homage to iconic signer, Prince.

Still in a state of sadness and shock from yesterday’s announcement that Prince has suddenly passed away at the young age of 57, we’re reflecting on the wonderful work from the one of a kind artist.

First finding stardom in the 1980s, the singer influenced the music world and had carved a hugely successful career for himself. His innovative music spanned across various genres including rock, funk and jazz; he recorded more than 30 albums and sold more than 100 million records during his career. The legend’s distinctly memorable albums include 1999, Purple Rain and Sign O’ the Times. Prince’s latest album, HITnRUN Phase Two, was released in 2015 and he had been touring as recently as last week.

Many famous celebrities have taken to social media to show their appreciation of the pop artist. Fellow musicians and signers including pop queen Madonna described him as a “visionary who changed the world” and Mick Jagger called him a “revolutionary artist, a great musician, a wonderful lyricist”. President Barack Obama has also spoken out about the loss of the creative icon by saying, “Few artists have influenced the sound and trajectory of popular music more distinctly, or touched quite so many people with their talent”.

Rest in peace, Prince.
