EUPHORIC VIDEO MASHUP

On Wednesday, June 7th, we celebrate the birthday of one of the world’s most brilliant musical geniuses, Prince, so what better way to pay homage to what would have been the Purple One’s 59th birthday than with a musical tribute that takes stock of his greatest hits?

A new musical mashup by Michael Korte, the YouTube personality that conceived the pop culture collision of a Hamilton/Beyoncé mashup seeks to do just that with #PURPLE4PRINCE, an ode to his Purpleness mixed with the songs of The Color Purple musical, a combination that’s fitting in more ways than one.

Featuring the vocal talents of Lolah Brown, Milo Bloom, Emi Secrest, Uri Grey, Kawan DeBose, and Sha’Leah Nikole and arranged by Jared Jenkins, the mashup uses songs from the popular musical against Prince favorites like “Purple Rain” and “I Feel For You.”

Celebrate his Purpleness and watch the full video below.

ONE YEAR AGO TODAY

I can’t believe how fast time flies.

A year ago we received the news of Prince passing.

He was found in Paisley Park, lifeless.

Many theories were presented, many half truths, many rumors.

No matter the reason, a huge musical giant, an amazing musician, a masterful influence was gone.

He crossed his ‘Purple Bridge”.

And left his many fans behind!

From a Facebook Member, Josie Fletcher … had to share! 
Prince isn’t dead … he just hopped on his “Little Red Corvette” … with his “Raspberry Beret” … drove off through the “Purple Rain“, over “Graffiti Bridge” … under the “Cherry Moon“, partying like it’s “1999” … because this is what happens “When Doves Cry“!!

PRINCE DAY

Prince’s Birthday Declared ‘Prince Day’ in Minnesota

Whether you’re a life-long fan or just discovering the “Purple Rain” singer, the images capture a man who wasn’t like the rest of music’s biggest stars.

As the day comes to an end, I find it fitting to post more information and videos about Prince.

The wizard of a generation, the genius of a lifetime.

Like no other ….

Gone too soon.

You are and will always be sorely missed.

Forever in our hearts and minds.

Wear something purple!

Governor Mark Dayton has officially declared Tuesday, June 7, “Prince Day” in the late pop icon’s home state of Minnesota, according to the Associated Press. This special day marks what would have been the “Kiss” crooner’s 58th birthday.

The holiday was instated to pay tribute to the seven-time Grammy winner’s contributions to music and entertainment, as well as his lesser-known philanthropy work.

Prince’s Life in Pictures
As fans will recall, Prince was passionate about his suburban roots and made a concerted effort to stay out of the Hollywood fray by choosing to settle down in Chanhassen, Minnesota, at his Paisley Park compound.

As Us Weekly previously reported, the legendary singer died at age 57 after he was found unresponsive in an elevator at his home on Thursday, April 21. His death was the result of “self-administered” Fentanyl toxicity, according to the medical examiner’s office.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
