PRINCE...in Concert @ Forum tonight! Rock Pop Star still dazzles fans!
Tonight, the celebrated rock Icon - PRINCE - will take the stage live! in Inglewood!
As usual - the 'Purple One" - will no doubt dazzle the fans with his charismatic stage persona, distinctive vocal powers, and masterful guitar musings!
The well-respected Grammy Award-Winner continues to book into concert halls - last minute - to sell-out the houses while many of his contemporaries languish in the shadows.
The legend prevails for good reason.
The gifted artist is a creative force to reckon with!
Prince was born - Prince Rogers Nelson - on June 7th in 1958.
For a brief eccentric period in his illustrious music career, the pop rocker was known as the "Artist Formerly Known as Prince".
Guess he got tired of being a symbol.
Prince has been quite prolific over the years, too, with 40 singles to his credit.
In addition to penning tunes for himself, Prince has unselfishly promoted musical artists such as Sheila E., Carmen Electra, The Time, and Vanity.
Hits have also been crafted for the likes of Chaka Khan, The Bangles, and Sinead O'Connor.
The man's talent has not gone unnoticed by the industry either.
Prince boasts 7 Grammy Awards.
In addition, he has won not only a Golden Globe - but, also - a coveted Academy Award.
Unlike some artists who toil for years without recognition, Prince has already been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (2004).
Cher, eat your heart out!
For what it's worth, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked Prince No. 28 on its list of the 100 Greatest Artists of all time!
Meanwhile, Prince plays on!
