Rest in Peace Prince

Prince Rogers Nelson passed away today.

Prince15

Prince, the songwriter, singer, producer, one-man studio band and consummate showman, died on Thursday at his home, Paisley Park, in Chanhassen, Minn. He was 57.

His publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, confirmed his death but did not report a cause. In a statement, the Carver County sheriff, Jim Olson, said that deputies responded to an emergency call at 9:43 a.m. “When deputies and medical personnel arrived,” he said, “they found an unresponsive adult male in the elevator. Emergency medical workers attempted to provide lifesaving CPR, but were unable to revive the victim. He was pronounced deceased at 10:07 a.m.”

I’m still in shock.  I was at work when I found out his death.  Soon as a read about his death I started playing his music on my ipod.

I’ve been a fan of Prince since Soft and Wet was released back in 1978.  That song along with Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad and I Wanna Be Your Lover started my love for all things Prince.  In 1982 I bought the 1999 album and it was on.  I wore that album out.  I still have it.

Rest in Peace Prince.

Rest in Peace Maurice White

Earth Wind and Fire founder Maurice White passed away.

Earth Wind and Fire has always been my all time favorite band.  They just don’t make music like EW&F music today.  This is why I cherish my music collection.  So many great music legends such as Luther Vandross, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Teena Marie, Donna Summer, Natalie Cole, David Bowie and now Maurice White passing away but their music lives on.

Check out one of my favorite Earth Wind and Fire songs All About Love. This song was written by Maurice White and Larry Dunn.  All About Love is from the That’s The Way of The World album/cd.

Rest in Peace Maurice White.

Music Monday- Tracie Spencer

I was checking out some music today in Amazon and found a music artist I hadn’t heard about in a long time. Whatever happened to Tracie Spencer?

TV One’s Unsung needs to do an episode with her.

She had some pretty good music back in the day. One of my favorite Tracie Spencer songs is This House. This House is from her Make The Difference cd.

Happy birthday to Aaliyah

Today would have been the 37th birthday of singer Aaliyah Haughton.  Aaliyah died in a plane crash on August 25, 2001. Can’t believe it’s been almost 15 years since her death.

Aaliyah’s 3 studio cds include Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number, One In A Million and Aaliyah. One of my favorite Aaliyah songs is Hot Like Fire from her One In A Million cd.

Rest in Peace Aaliyah.

Happy birthday Sade Adu

Today is the 57th birthday of British singer, songwriter and producer Sade Adu.

I’ve been a fan of Sade’s since the 1980’s when Diamond Life was released. The band Sade have released six studio albums/cds including Diamond Life, Promise, Stronger Than Pride, Lovers Rock, Love Deluxe and Soldier of Love.

Sade has so many great songs that it’s difficult to say which one is my favorite.  But one of my favorites was never released as a single.  Maureen is from her Promise album/cd.  Love this song.

Will Sade ever release a new cd? Who knows. Just glad I own all of her music. Check out Soldier of Love from her last cd Soldier of Love which was released in 2010.  Yes six years since her last cd.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!!!  Hope everyone has a great 2016.

This Christmas

Christmas isn’t Christmas if I don’t hear one of my favorite Christmas songs. This Christmas by the late Donny Hathaway is an all time classic.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all. Hope you’re having a great and joyous holiday.
