Saddened to hear the news of Prince’s passing yesterday. Once again, another hugely gifted, inspirational star has left this world. This is a sad year. Like Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and David Bowie particularly, I feel the generation of hugely iconic figures I grew up listening and watching are now slowly leaving this world, leaving me nostalgic and appreciative of the artistic role models I was exposed to. Prince, like fellow top artists, illustrated the importance of self-invention, determination and creativity. As Maya Angelou said “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” It is a lesson for us all. Life is short so live and express it as he did. RIP Prince.
