We’ve already listed five reasons you definitely don’t want to miss the 2016 Billboard Music Awards, but now we have another. Just announced, Madonna will take the stage in a tribute performance to Prince.
” I have ceased distinguishing between the religious and the secular, for everything is holy: our courage and humility, our senses both lost and found; our love and our lust…all that shall swoon and couple, leaving in their wake the real hope that, late as is the hour –with as much as we have been given and squandered; as little as we might deserve it, though we stomp and plead— there may yet be more on offer: God willing, just one more song sung into high rafters before we are finally called to quit and disperse” Joe Henry ❤️#rebelheart
