On the 27th June Prince will be honoured with a Lifetime Achievement award at the BET Awards, and it’s about time too I say! I can remember watching the video to Alphabet Street as a child and loving it, and seeing as both my parents listened to his music a lot, it didn’t take long for me to develop a serious obsession with The Purple One! Prince’s talent seems to know no ends, from playing almost all the instruments on his recordings to writing and producing his own records, using a variety of vocal styles in his music and putting on a show only rivalled by the likes of Michael Jackson, he truly puts the artists of today to shame. I was lucky enough to see him live (twice!) at the O2 arena in London in 2007 and it was an incredibly flawless performance from start to finish. So here’s to one of the greatest musicians of all time, I can’t think of anyone more deserving!
