in Lifestyle

I have been immersing myself (whenever I can) in his albums, his films, and his presence. It has been so interesting reading about him. He is fascinating and truly gifted in so many ways. It is such a treat to listen to his music that he blessed us with. Such eclectic, amazing music – from his soul in every way, from him writing and producing, to being able to play every instrument.
