Gone Too Soon…

Greetings Folks,

I’m going to make this brief. The recent passing of Singer/Songwriter/Instrumentalist Prince made me reminisce about some of the greats that we’ve lost way too soon. I think we all long to have a peaceful passing that consists of growing old and laying comfortably in our bed without any pain, heartache, or discomfort. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. And when a respected public figure passes, it tends to hurt just as bad as the passing of a family member due to the love and admiration that a lot of us have for their work.

In this post, I just want to pay my respects and show love to some entertainers who left a mark in their perspective fields and who did it with nothing but their God-Given talent. Here are some videos that showcase some of my favorite moments and pieces from their work.
