Prince passed away today at the age of 57. What about his artistry most affected you?
  1. The way you make my mom dance and sing
    Seriously, no one can make @TheDeena groove harder than you.

  2. His guitar playing: When Eric Clapton was asked how it felt to be the world's best guitarist he replied: "I don't know. Ask Prince".

  12. My job
    I was headed to a job interview last year. The local radio DJs were taking audience requests bc of technical difficulties. I requested "Kiss" so I could properly jam and be interview-ready. The DJ was so pumped to play it and I was pumped in my car. I got the job and I still listen to that song to empower myself. 💜
