A long-ish read story of Prince’s epic halftime show in 2007. It is regarded as perhaps the peak of halftime shows in the modern Super Bowl era (considered post- Up With People). Since, we have suffered through many vain attempts by the NFL to please everyone through a single musical act. Personally, I’d prefer if they had mascot football games during halftime. But, if you want to know how a genius works and also how genius is allowed to work- give this a read.
The best performers step up on the biggest stage at the biggest time and simply deliver because that is what they are. We’re not all like that- but we can all give the same effort. I find that inspirational.
