The world is feeling the loss of another revolutionary musician and social visionary who broke down racial barriers, stretched gender roles and opened doors to a whole new future. I did not follow Prince’s music, but I have a tremendous respect for his artistry and how he used it to transform the world.
It seems significant that he and David Bowie passed so closely to each other. I can only imagine Michael’s immense love greeting them both on the other side. Their missions were so similar to his own, and Prince in particular pushed Michael to deeper creativity. I’d say may Prince rest in peace, but my hope is that he will join Michael’s spirit in roaming the Earth, waking people up, and inspiring them to make the world a better place.
My heart goes out to his family and fans.
There’s a very moving and personal tribute to him here:
