| April 22, 2016 | 0 Comments

Many are still in shock at the sudden death of musical Icon Prince and it doesn’t matter how much of a season musical veteran one is as in Mariah Carey’s case, Prince’s death has effected so many in different ways. While in Paris for a scheduled performance Mariah learned of the passing of her friend and before she began her show, she took a moment to remember the beloved musical legend.

“I didn’t know if I was able to come out here and put on a show and be festive, but I said, ‘I’m in Paris and that’s what Prince would want me to do,'” Carey reportedly said during her show at AccorHotels Arena. “To get through it rather than just make everything bleak, we need to take this and honor this.”

“He was a friend to me, too, and he talked me through some times I really, really needed somebody,” she continued. “He was an incredible person if you never got to meet him. I’m sure his music has touched every single person in here, so let’s have a moment of silence for Prince.”

Before performing “One Sweet Day” in his honor, she added, “It’s a very sad day, but we remember the life of somebody who will always be treasured.”
