prince, you will never be forgotten

April 21, 2016

Utterly shocked and heartbroken to hear confirmation of the death of Prince.

Prince was a musical genius, a true innovator, and a profound person whose contributions to music changed the art form, and many of us, forever. He exhibited unreal boldness as an artist and performer who blurred the lines of every boundary the world imposed on him: be it the types of music he was “supposed” to make or challenging the notion of gender norms and expectations. Prince was one-of-a-kind in every sense and we will always remember the beauty, magic, and black excellence that he gave to the world.
