One Year Later, Prince Still Reigns

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called grief.

It's been one full year since The Purple One's passing, and we can still hear his guitar gently weep. Countless tributes are pouring in today on this tragic anniversary, with fans around the world still not wanting to accept his untimely death.

Equally shy as he was flamboyant, Prince was regarded as a musical genius, with his eclectic taste in music stretching from rock, R&B, soul, funk and hip-hop to jazz, psychedelia and even disco. As much as he was admired for his unique antics on stage, he was just as respected for his business acumen away from the limelight.

Whether he captured your heart during his days of Prince-extraordinaire or his no-named era known as The Artist Formerly Known as Prince, no doubt his multi-ranged music will be etched in our hearts and souls forever.
