If you were at the Essence Fest in New Orleans over the weekend, you know that the talk of the town was Prince’s show-stopping, purple performance. Yet, if you were like me, sitting at home, you could only admire the legend from afar through various Instagram and Twitter posts. Thank God for social media!
