The music community is still reeling from the loss of Prince last week, and Monday's episode of The Voice saw all four coaches take a minute to pay tribute to the groundbreaking artist in a very simple, honest way.
There was no performance (unfortunately, because you know something like that would've been magical), just a few minutes at the top of the show for each coach to say a few words about how much Prince meant to them and what an impact he had on the music industry as a whole. (Coaches Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera also opened up to E! News about his impact last week.)
"I just have a lot of respect for someone who's able to continue to make music and never change anything about who he was—that's inspiring and I'm going to miss this guy so much," said Levine.
Pharrell Williams recalled his Aunt Eileen from Virginia Beach getting her copy of Purple Rain in the mail and how much the family listened to it throughout his childhood. "When that Purple Rain album came, it played in that apartment complex for the rest of the summers, all my childhood," he said.
