Prince And Misty Copeland Give Gorgeous Performance Of “The Beautiful Ones!”
Posted by GreaterGoodness
Prince was known for finding amazing talent and featuring them in videos or writing songs for them – see Sinead O’Connor and Sheila E. In this 2011 video from the George Lopez show, he introduces a national TV audience to the astounding Misty Copeland, who is now the Principal Ballerina with the American Ballet Theater. Prince also featured her in his 2009 video for “Crimson and Clover.” He was always a fan of ballet, and he saw that Copeland was a rising star so he helped her on that journey like he did so many other people, even funding a documentary on her – “A Ballerina’s Tale”.
Two genius artists, one of them taken from us far too soon.
