From that point on the songs just melted into one another and he played hit after hit after hit! Namely “Crimson and Clover,” Raspberry Beret,” “Cream,” “U Got The Look,” “1999,” “Cool,” “Little Red Corvette,” “Delirious,” and “The Glamorous Life.”
Now, upon arriving to the Welcome 2 America concert, Sarah and I knew were we fans of the celebrated singer, but we were not his biggest fans….yet. I would be lying if I said we knew every Prince song in the book, but that didn’t stop us from dancing the night away! Our legs are still soar!
One of the most enjoyable moments of that night’s show was when Prince brought his protégée [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Sheila E[/lastfm] on stage. That night was the first time I had ever learned about Sheila E and she sure did make one hell of a good first impression!
Never have I seen someone rock out on the drums while singing their lungs out quite like her. She was born to perform and the crowd went crazy for her. I may not know much about Sheila E, but one thing I am positive about is that she knows how to get the party started.
During her opening performance she invited concert goers to the stage for a dance party! There was no doubt she would pump up the crowd when she arrived back on the stage.
After Sheila E’s concert cameo, the show started coming to an end…or so we thought!
Prince had quite a few tricks up his sleeve, and what everyone thought was his final song marked the beginning of his many encores.
Although Sarah and I were having the time of our lives, the clock was getting closer and closer to our waking hour and as much as we wanted to stay we sadly had to go. We knew we had a rough morning coming our way but the fact that we could say we saw the one and only Prince made it well worth it!
Prince has many talents, but the one that I commend him for the most is his ability to appeal to the masses of every generation. He truly is an amazing artist!
