Friend lost her laptop. Devastated. I told her to believe in humanity by watching Prince’s Super Bowl Halftime Show https://t.co/GxZ0YRaYYA— Edmund Yeo (@greatswifty) April 23, 2016
Prince died two nights ago.
Since then, I've been posting and retweeting a lot about him on Facebook and Twitter.
I always knew who he was as he grew up, but wasn't really truly exposed to his greatness until I saw that Super Bowl Halftime Show. That was epic and spine-tingling.
Two days later, when a friend lost her Macbook and External Hard Disk, and was entirely distraught, all I could do was to ask her to believe in the goodness of humanity by watching Prince's Super Bowl Halftime Show.

For real though, shouldn't everyone go home from work and school? It's Prince. Its like hearing the Grand Canyon died.— Adam McKay (@GhostPanther) April 21, 2016
