Thank You Prince , It was my older Sister Beulah who told me that PRINCE was reported to have died on April, 21st, 2016. She, my older Sisters Emma and Jennifer and my older Brother Ira Jay, introduced me to playing music on the stereo and putting multiple 45’s RPM singles on the fat 45 record holder, that you placed on the spindle.
Rest In Eternal Peace Prince, who pressed the down button on his in home elevator, but I believe stated to Jesus Christ that he wanted to go up. I met his music in 1978 on a 45 record that turned me out as I was learning how to be a DJ, I was not on the radio yet, still practicing on the turntables, the 1’s & 2’s. One mix I really dug was a Prince record “Soft & Wet” that I would mix with another 45 by Foster Sylvers called “Misdemeanor”, the sonic boom I got in that mix I will nevah forget, it was all that for me and launched me into the world of DJ-ING.
I loved Prince and his flair to be (old school term) Nasty, man you play a Prince record and all the sudden you are a good DJ; John Gary Dewberry, DJ NICETY, if you please, I just dug his whole set, from being cool to putting that cool into everything he did, which is in full display in the movie Under The Cherry Moon
He was 57 years old when he died, just 2-months before turning 58, that’s 2 years older than myself, Prince is right there in my age ball park and his death does touch my heart. I pray for the Comforter; The HOLY SPIRIT OF JESUS, to ease the pain of all that loved him. I am left with great music memories and a profound feeling of the Spirituality of Prince, you can hear in all of his music.
Prince had purpose in his being, his presence on earth and in the music scene put God talk into the mainstream, making it like it’s cool to be cool and talk about GOD, and like I said when you put on a Prince record you could turn a party out.
