I have so much to say, but feeling quite discombobulated about the shocking news that Prince passed away today. It feels like a part of my childhood was taken from me so suddenly. As a dancer, I spent countless hours connecting to his music, performing choreographed routines that I can still remember, to this day. He pioneered individuality to me; always pushed beyond the envelope, which inspired me to stay authentic in every way imaginable. PRINCE WAS IT; he changed music forever. His artistry lives on in all of our hearts, and his music will NEVER die. May his soul rest in peace.
