Losing a Legend: Prince Dies at 57

Posted at April 21st, 2016 | by Shivani Goel | in

Yet another tragic loss this year, legendary musician Prince Rogers Nelson, popularly know as just Prince, was found dead at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota. He passed away at the age of 57, although cause of death has not been confirmed yet. In an incident just a week ago, while Prince was flying home from Atlanta, the pilot had to do an emergency landing because Prince needed medical help and later stated that he had the flu.

Prince’s publicist Yvette Noel-Schure said, “It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson, has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning at the age of 57.”

Prince was nothing short of an icon in the pop music world. His influence from the 70’s to the 90’s was incredible and included albums like Dirty Mind, Purple Rain, 1999, and Lovesexy. He was unparalleled in diversity, popularity, and innovation, and he was even inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.

Prince’s lastest albums were HITNRUN Phase One and Two both released in 2015. His last concert was on the 14th of April 2016 at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, which was a part of his “Piano and a Microphone” tour. Prince’s memoir, titled The Beautiful Ones, is slated to release next fall.
