It’s hard to believe that it’s coming up on 60 days since Prince’s death. Many people are still mourning, but today we’re celebrating his life on what would have been his 58th birthday.

Everyone has his or her favorite Prince performance, and last year I was lucky enough to catch him in concert in Baltimore in honor of Freddie Gray. I can’t exactly say it was my favorite Prince show, but I will say that I’m glad I was able to see him perform. If I had to pick an all-time-favorite performance, it would definitely be his Super Bowl show. That performance will go down in history as one of the greatest Super Bowl shows ever.
