+1 Remembering Prince, The Utopian

April 21st, 2016

Episode 671 of 811 episodes

Prince was one of those rare musicians who continued to connect with people decades after the start of his career. As NPR Music's Ann Powers tells All Songs Considered hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton, Prince had a unique vision of a perfect world, one that challenged gender and sexual norms, one where love was the only rule. He also devoted his life, his studio time and his time on stage to making deep and lasting connections with his audience — and to making sure his audience connected with each other on the deepest human levels.
