There was only one King, and that was Elvis. In the same breath, there was only one Prince and that was PRINCE.
Being an 80’s person, Prince’s movie “Purple Rain” helped spearhead his music and talents. Many successful singers have also starred in some classic movies. Elvis did many movies, as well as the Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and even The Spice Girls had a go at it (I had to throw that in).
Movies further advertise the artist and thus attract more attention to them.
Of the people from Gen X, who didn’t buy the movie soundtrack of “Purple Rain” back in 1984?
With over 25 million copies sold, the album was certified 13X Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Its’ total sales stand at 25 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums of all time.
A quick glance on Facebook and you will find an account that celebrates the life and legacy of Prince with 2.8 million followers (www.facebook.com/prince).
He continues his digital marketing presence with 373,000 followers on Instagram. Prince’s website is still up and active despite having left this mortal world in 2016! You can visit at www.prince.com.
I absolutely loved his falsetto and high-pitched screams. He had many sounds including funk, R&B, rock, new wave, soul, synth-pop, pop, jazz, and hip hop. He often played most or all instruments on his recordings.
Sometimes people act just in the NOW, but if you are thinking in FUTURES, you are building something for your family and future generations. A Digital presence is a given in today and tomorrow’s world.
Prince wrote, he sang, he performed, he acted, he danced. He did the splits so easily; I was a hockey goalie all my life, if only I could do the splits like Prince did!
