Most people think of an incredible guitarist, prolific writer or incomparable showman when they think of Prince. And they’d be right. But that often meant his voice was overshadowed, when that too was just as worthy of awe and praise.
I will never forget hearing this record on the radio for the first time when I was 12 or 13 years old and genuinely believing it featured two vocalists because his lower register and high falsetto were just worlds apart. I couldn’t believe one persons vocal range was so wide, and their tone so diverse. But that was Prince. He could sound like a whole chorus of singers on just one song. He used his voice as a true instrument, like any other he picked up.
So today we urge you to listen to Prince, and pay attention to that incredible voice. Just like everything else about him, it was one of a kind.
