Prince To Receive Honorary Degree From University of Minnesota

first_imgBeloved pop icon Prince passed away earlier this year, leaving behind a wake of loyal supporters and admirers everywhere. The Purple One was adored around the world, but perhaps nowhere as much as his home state of Minnesota. While other artists might have abandoned the locale for big city life, Prince instead set up shop at his Paisley Park manor and poured funds into the local community.Though Prince passed away on April 21st, the University of Minnesota had been planning to award Prince with an honorary doctorate for not only his artistic contributions, but for his philanthropic and social ones as well. The nomination comes posthumously, and a ceremony will be detailed for later this year.“As Minnesotans and people around the world continue to celebrate Prince’s life and contributions to society, the University is privileged to award the honorary degree posthumously,” said President Eric Kaler on the U of M website. “Prince was transformational in American music and culture, and we are extremely proud of his many accomplishments, as well as his efforts to give back to his home state, a legacy we hope to continue.”“He changed the world’s view of what it meant to be Minnesotan,” said Michael Kim, Director of the University of Minnesota’s School of Music. “He demonstrated that far from provincial and unassuming, Minnesota’s creative talents were cutting-edge and brilliant. I can think of no better way to express the University’s esteem for one of Minnesota’s own sons, and one of the most talented and influential performing artists of all time.”There’s nothing but love for Prince.
