Usually my Music Mondays are filled with songs from around the world, that either pull out a certain emotion or help writers pull off a certain type of scene. After the lose of an icon last week I needed to do a shout out to a man who seemed legendary and invincible: a god I never imagined could ever be mortal.
Growing up in the 80 there was not one person who didn't know who Prince was. In the south I was surrounded by rednecks, country music, bluegrass, southern rock and sweet soul music. There was no missing how much Prince showed up in music. Even more than I could have ever imagined. I found a video on Youtube of some of Prince's more secret works and how his music effected even other celebrities. Vox has put together a must see clip on a humble man, who was always ready to hold out a helping hand. He was aptly named Prince.

To Prince Rogers Nelson, Rest in Peace and thank you for the legacy you left behind. You will always be an idol, a saint, a sinner and a musical icon to us all. Sadly we now know what it really sounds like when doves cry.
