Hoping He Sings “When Doves Cry”

I just read the headline on the Stuff website: “Prince to attend quake memorial”.

I’m pleased. I’ve never been a big follower of his music, but he was one of the most successful popular musicians of the ’80s and ’90s, and it will mean a lot for the people of Christchurch to know one of the icons of the US entertainment industry feels their pain and has made such an effort to get here.

I’m just glad they didn’t choose to send one of those stuffy royals to the service.
