THE REVOLUTION • “Sometimes It Snows In April” • B.B. King NYC • 4/28/17
Wendy, accompanied by Lisa, performs the emotional centerpiece of the night. After Wendy reflects on writing the song that has comforted and haunted us all since Prince's death, and talks about processing his loss, she gives a heartbreaking and heart-healing performance. As Wendy says, 'our own little Shiva'.
The audience, unprompted, comes in on the chorus, singing ever so softly. Almost like a whisper, sounding like a choir of children. I was done. I had a lump in my throat the size of a golf ball. These lyrics where art and life eerily come together, hitting me in the chest:
"Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
Sometimes I wish life was never ending
And all good things, they say, never last
And love, it isn't love until it's past"
Even amidst the sorrow, it felt good. It felt great! I was glad I was there to share this beautiful moment with friends, fellow fans and Prince's treasured musical collaborators.
Thank you, Wendy, Lisa, Brown Mark, Matt Fink and Bobby Z.

GO SEE THE REVOLUTION LIVE!
They will make you smile. They will make you jump. They will make you sing. They will make you dance. They will probably make you shed a few tears. But when you leave, you will feel the happiest you have felt thinking about Prince, since before the sad day we lost him.
