The Most Shocking Death Of 2016 For Many In The Christian Community Was The Death Of Prince!??!?!
Reader, I know that we got a couple of more days left in 2016. But it's not hard for me to believe that the above comment is true, at least for me. Judging by the number of tributes that was done in Prince honor, leads me to believe that the Christian community really took the death of the purple one serious.
The music world and the Christian community were shocked by the sudden death of exceptional musician Prince, early in the year. There were shock and disbelief in many churches around the world following the announcement of the death of Prince.The death of the songwriter, singer and music producer Prince drew reactions from the Vatican all the way down to our local community church.
Prince was a brilliant guitarist, and gifted singer, highly creative songwriter, an outstanding composer and even his own producer. This is the first time in my recognition that the Christian church has come out and showed support and love for a secular artist.
The singer died at his Chanhassen, Minn. home on April 21 at the age of 57, the New York Times reports. His given name was Prince Rogers Nelson. Prince played guitars, keyboards and drums in multiple music genres since the late 1970s. He won the Grammy award seven times and achieved Top 10 hits like “When Doves Cry” and “1999.” His acclaimed 1984 movie and album “Purple Rain” was about an aspiring musician.
