It could be possible that the late musical icon, Prince, will be posthumously awarded the Congressional Gold Medal.
Minnesota’s Congressional delegation is proposing the legislation due to Prince’s “indelible mark on Minnesota and American culture.”
“The world is a whole lot cooler because Prince was in it — he touched our hearts, opened our minds, and made us want to dance. With this legislation, we honor his memory and contributions as a composer, performer, and music innovator. Purple reigns in Minnesota today and every day because of him,” said Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar.
The Congressional Gold Medal is one of the nation’s highest civilian honors.
Past recipients include, Rosa Parks, Mother Teresa, the Wright Brothers and several others.
