It’s a sad day in the music world today as news broke not too long ago that Prince – the legendary musician and singer – has died at 57 years old.

TMZ first broke the news, and it has been confirmed by members of the Prince team.

The body of the prolific artist was found at Paisley Park in Minnesota on early Thursday morning.

TMZ reported the following:

The singer — full name Prince Rogers Nelson — had a medical emergency on April 15th that forced his private jet to make an emergency landing in Illinois. But he appeared at a concert the next day to assure his fans he was okay. His people told TMZ he was battling the flu.

Prince, who rose to prominence after releasing his breakthrough album “1999,”  recently cancelled a couple of shows before this most recent medical emergency.
He will be sadly missed and was a true force in music – selling over 100 million records throughout his storied life. He also won an Academy Award for Purple Rain and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.
RIP Prince
