Today is Prince’s birthday.
I know. I know. Since I started this little blog, the birthdays of many heroes have come and gone: Frederick Douglass, Malcolm X, Bob Marley, and Oprah Winfrey. The anniversaries of significant events in history have passed: the murders of Patrice Lumumba, Dr. King, and Biggie, Ghana’s independence, Brown v. Bd. of Ed. But you can just assume all of those days are significant to me (I remembered and acknowledged most of them this year…promise). What you may not know (if you’ve known me for less than 2 hours) is that I’m a die hard Prince fan. I just can’t help it.
So on his birthday, I figured it only appropriate for me to pay some type of tribute.
52 years blessing this earth with your genius and crazy. In your words, I truly adore U.

Girl get outta here! You’re gonna make me propose to you! Prince is my favorite artist of all time too. I met the guy twice. A while ago I was starting to catalog my albums, but my cataloging program broke down on me about 10% into it. Anyhow, I managed to get quite a few albums of his up. I think I own about 1000 Prince albums. Let me know if you are looking for something by him.
Ha! That’s amazing. I want to hear the stories of the 2x you met him. And thanks for sharing this music!
You know I support it–100%
I knew you would!
You really are his #1 fan. When are you throwing the birthday party? Or is that reserved only for milestone birthdays? 😛
