If you were to ask me , “what’s your favorite Prince song”, I honestly can’t tell you! There’re so many, I use to always listen to the whole Purple Rain album and loving each and every song from it “When doves cry” to “Purple Rain” and then he has so many other albums too. I was working when I heard the news about Prince’s death. It’s kind of sad but we will always have his music! So, is it was awesome to hear that I had booked a tribute cover gig for him. Working with ShotsWeekly.com was great, I had a lots of fun and laughs!

Hands down my favorite song by prince has got to be “Kiss”. I was on social media when I found out Prince passed away and it made me realize life is so short and precious and anything can happen at any time. I want to live my life to the fullest and experience the most. We lost some legends over the past few years however the impact they left on the music industry will live on forever. This photo shoot was awesome, I think everyone will enjoy these photos as much as we enjoyed creating them. It is an honor to be able to represent such a legend and to work with an amazing group of people. Thank you to everyone who came together to make something epic.
