Four years ago today, we said goodbye to a music icon, the legendary Prince.

It’s hard to begin to even describe the kind impact Prince left on the world of music, as a singer, songwriter, guitar shredder, musician, producer, actor… he was as electric as they come.

Shortly after his death, Chris Stapleton was performing at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, California, when he surprised the crowd with a tribute performance of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U,” made famous by Sinead O’Connor in 1990. Prince released his own version on 1993.

It was Chris’ first time ever playing the song, but holy hell if he didn’t knock it out of the park.

Here’s to the one and only Prince.

Often imitated, never duplicated… a once-in-a-lifetime kind of star. Music still misses you.
