Documentary about the late American pop star Prince. Featuring interviews and archive footage, the programme provides an overview of his career and pays homage to his success. It was an enormously sad day for music, entertainment and artistry when the premature and wholly unexpected announcement of Prince s passing came through. And while the same ending will come to us all, it was a cruel fate that took a man still in his prime the prime of his life, his creativity and his emotional and existential insight. This flamboyant, mercurial genius could bend any musical style to his will and cross styles and images with ease. He could react to, anticipate and create change in the musical world, in respect to both the sounds and the business and distribution thereof. He could dance, sing, perform, compose and brilliantly play just about any instrument. His talent bordered on the supernatural. Steeped in James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, George Clinton, and early Motown and Philadelphia, Prince was closer in spirit to Jimi Hendrix - a consummate black musician who transcended genre and conquered the worlds of rock, pop and soul. An ambitious workaholic who survived on less sleep than Churchill, but still an erotic, sexual giant from whom a sole cut could give the impression that his entire raison d etre was to get you into bed! This film collection covers it all and in so doing provides the finest document available of this late but extraordinary human being.
