Yesterday, the world learned the sad news that Prince had passed away.
Social media was flooded with tributes to the Purple One but one short video of a Georgia teacher seemed to sum up how everyone was feeling.
One of Matthew Patterson's students posted the poignant clip of him taking his glasses off and hanging his head after playing Purple Rain for the class.
The video has been retweeted over 50,000 times and been shared around the world.
Speaking to the NY Daily News, Patterson said he spoke to the students about how important Prince was to him.
“I talked about what Prince meant to me as an artist and a brave performer and a person unwilling to take stuff from record companies,” he told the NY Daily News.
"It hit me like a ton of bricks. I’ve been listening to Prince since I was 7… I must’ve spent thousands and thousands of hours listening to Prince. I was just a huge fan.”
