Prince’s death has shocked the world. He died at his Paisley Park recording studio. Before his death, he had two weeks of illness and just never could recover from it. He was a famous singer, actor, song writer and known as an innovator. He had a variety of styles that he could which included pop, soul, R&B, funk and more. People grew up listening to his music and loved him. He was born in Minneapolis and started taking an interest with music at a very young age. He wrote his first song just when he was seven years old. When he was 19 years old, he did some demo tapes that were unsuccessful. However, he did not let that stop him. He released his album in 1979 called Prince and it actually went platinum and was very successful. Within the next three years he released three more albums and all of them were successful.
Despite the rocky start he had at 19 years of age, he ended up selling over 100 million records around the world. This makes him one of the best selling artists of all time. He won 7 of the Grammy awards and even won a Golden Globe award, academy award and in 2004 he was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. On the 100 Greatest Artists of all Time, he ranked number 27 with Rolling Stone.
Most of us know that his father was a songwriter and a pianist. Did you know that while we know that about his father, his mother was also a jazz singer, so safe to say the talent just was in his family. His father named him Prince because he wanted him to do everything that he wanted to do. I think that while he died unexpected and at a young age, he was able to just that and be successful. He was also born as an epileptic and had seizures when he very young. He also had a sister named Tika Evene and both of them had a keen interest with music. This was mainly encouraged by their father who loved and appreciated music so much.
When Prince was not singing or doing things with music, you might have had a chance to play basketball with him. He loved playing basketball when he was in high school. The love for basketball continued with him as he was an adult and he often times played basketball for just recreation when he was older.
I think that while the death of Prince has shocked us all, he would not want us to mourn. Instead, he would want us to laugh and remember some funny things about him. I have selected 10 funny memes that might help you with smiling during this painful time. I know you still might find yourself shedding a few tears while looking at the memes but hopefully you’ll be able to smile when looking at them.
