‘Compassion is an action word with no boundaries.’
‘A strong spirit transcends rules.’
‘…in this life, you’re your own crazy. Go crazy.’
Stories are powerful, as is the story teller. Today on twitter, a post shared from The Daily Beast’s Matt Wilstein to remember a special night after the SNL 40th Anniversary Show, in New York City’s The Plaza, as could only be told by someone who shares the passion, compassion, and enthusiasm for music and musicians, Jimmy Fallon. On The Tonight Show the next evening, for millions of us who weren’t invited to the party, Fallon made us feel like we were. And Prince was there.
(Edited on Saturday, April 23rd – – footage released of Prince’s SNL 40th anniversary afterparty performance.)
And here’s a short clip, just released April 26th, about Character Day coming up in September.
