Prince may soon receive a huge posthumous honor.
Minnesota’s Congressional delegation has just introduced a resolution seeking to award Prince with the Congressional Gold Medal. The resolution was presented by the state’s Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar and U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar.
The resolution says Prince deserves the honor because of his “indelible mark on Minnesota and American culture.”
The resolution also said: “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,” Klobuchar said. “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.”
The resolution must be approved by at least two-thirds of the members of both the Senate and House of Representatives in order for the late superstar to receive the award.
