At a young age my mom shared the story of how he died and where she was when she heard the news. Although many years after his death, I was saddened that this man that made such beautiful music was killed. Today marks 30 years since that very day.
I've always felt a strong connection to his lyrics and his messages of peace and truth. I admire him for his honesty, his activism and his artistry. I'd like to pay tribute to a man that inspired and moved me since childhood. A man that spoke his truth like we all should speak our own.
