22nd Apr 2016

It’s the weekend, but our usually joyous feelings are marred with sadness as we struggle to accept that we’ve lost one of our greatest musical legends, the incomparable?Prince. Dance, sing and raise a glass to the icon who is gone, but never forgotten.

IMAGE.ie Editor Ellie Balfe reflects on the enormous impact Prince had on the music industry and the lives of so many, including hers. We’ve lost so many inspiring figures this year, and their loss is dearly felt. They made us laugh, cry and took our imaginations to new heights; it’s only right that we remember them. If you’re struggling to find the words, this should help.
