When the news hit, his fans were stunned. They still don’t know what to think because there is so much conflicting information going viral around the internet.
To confirm: Prince, the musical icon loved by millions has passed away at the age of 57.
He had canceled several shows on his latest tour. His private jet had to be rerouted earlier this week so that he could go to the hospital for what seemed to be flu like symptoms. But, he kept working.
He went back into the studio to record more songs. But, that was where they found him. He was found dead in his Paisley Park studio early this morning.

Obviously, it didn’t seem to anyone to be too serious. He kept pushing himself for the fans. He kept writing and making songs. He did shows right up to the and.
One of the greatest performers of all time. He started performing in the 70s and hit it big in the 80s. He hasn’t stopped since. He will go down as one of the greatest musicians for so many more reasons than just giving us great music.
He was never in the headlines for scandal. He won 7 Grammies in his musical career. He sold over 100 million records. That was Prince. He even went for a short time without a name at all and it made people scramble to figure out what to call him. What a legend! One like him can never be replaced.
