Stevie Wonder Tributes Prince In Rolling Stone

Stevie Wonder remembered his dear friend Prince with a beautiful tribute in Rolling Stone where he credits the music icon for creating music so vivid that “even he could see it.”

Stevie went on to talk about Prince’s desire to “fix the world” and how he fought for his artistic freedom.

Wonder, who is a musical genius in his own right, said, “If Michael was the King of Pop, Prince should be the Emperor.”

Prince was so inspired, and so inspiring. He was kind, he was disciplined and he knew where he wanted to go. He was able to make big transitions. If Michael was the King of Pop, Prince should be the Emperor. Prince fought for his artistic freedom. He didn’t allow anyone or anything to get in his way. By following his own path, Prince took music to a whole other place, like the Beatles did. He wanted to change the way things were, like Marvin Gaye did. When you do that, you have to be very sure of yourself.
