Not only is “Kiss” one of my all time favorite songs, and it has been since I was like 7 years old … but every time I listen to it, and I do mean EVERY TIME… I picture the scene from Pretty Woman where Julia Roberts is singing it in the bathtub 🛀🎶
When people asked me what/who Prince was to me, I boldface said:
He was my introduction to music, artistry and self acceptance.
He was the closest being I ever had to a father because he guided me, musically, through the unimaginable and insurmountable.
I thought I would have the honor of bringing my children to one of his concerts. And I never had the audacity to say it out loud; but I foolishly dreamed as a little girl that someday, he’d hear my music.
I send a genuine and heartfelt thank you to the lost brothers who allowed me to witness his greatness. We may no longer share the bond of music making but I will never forget that gesture.
I didn’t think for a second that God expected me to live in a world where the Purple one no longer existed. But I thank Him for introducing me to the life changing experience that is Prince.
I promise to be a truer me. To be worthy of his musical legacy and be a fearless musician & take risks every day.
Dearly Beloved, Rest In Love, Power & Funk.
