Prince has died at age 57


Music legend Prince has died at the age of 57.

TMZ is reporting that the singer’s body was discovered at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota early this morning. He was found unresponsive in an elevator, County Sheriff Jim Olson later acknowledged.

TMZ cites multiple sources close to the star who have verified that he has passed.

We will update this post as information becomes available.

The AP has confirmed that Prince has died. It was the star’s publicist that verified the tragic news.

On April 15, Prince Rogers Nelson’s jet made an emergency landing due to a medical emergency for the “When Doves Cry” singer. He appeared at a concert the very next day to let fans know he was alright.

We are devastated by this news. Prince was peerless and as vital as any artist in recorded music history. This performance says it better than we ever could:
