Tonight I’m going to listen to Vanity 6, And burn a candle.

You were such a beautiful soul dear Denise.
Thank you for being part of the Prince camp back in the time when you were both on top of the world.

Is poverty bringing U down?

Did he put your million dollar check

A friend of Denise posted the following video today in commemoration of her birthday:

"Wishing my friend Denise Matthews a Happy Heavenly Birthday.. She went on to be with the Lord on February 15, 2016. I will forever remember all of our laughs and great times together. Denise was know as the artist Vanity and was loved and admired all over the world. However, Denise told me what she was most proud of was not being a celebrity, but being a soul winner 4 Christ.. Amen.. Rest in Heaven my friend.."

Here is an article published by the SF Gate entitled "Prince pays tribute to protege Vanity during concert":

"According to news.com.au, he changed the lyrics to The Ladder to replace “Electra” with “Vanity” so the line became, “This Prince, he had a subject named Vanity who loved him with a passion, uncontested.” He made a similar name change in The Beautiful Ones.

He reportedly told the audience, “Can I tell you a story about Vanity? Or should I tell you a story about Denise? Her and I used to love each other deeply. She loved me for the artist I was, I loved her for the artist she was trying to be."
