Relive some of Prince's best moments

I was under the impression that Prince was immortal. I now wish that I had been correct in this assumption, for he was taken from us far too soon.

For the longest time, I was genuinely convinced that Prince was magic, and I still do. I mean, the man changed his name to a symbol and seemed to float when he walked.

He was always larger than life, both onstage and off. He had this aura that drew people in and made you want to stop and listen. Also his voice was pretty magical, further proof that he was not of this world. 

With that being said, fire up your Prince playlists and relive some of The Purple One's greatest moments.

1. His 2007 Super Bowl halftime performance in the pouring rain:

2. His 1984 film debut in "Purple Rain":

3. His 1993 name change to what would be known as "The Love Symbol":

4. His 2014 appearance on "New Girl": 

Here's to you, Prince. May you always party like it's 1999. Your magic and music will live on.
