Prince Dies at 57

Legendary Musician Prince Has Died at 57

Musician Prince has been found dead at his Paisley Park Estate in Chanhassen, Minnesota. He was 57 years old. The Grammy winner's jet made an emergency landing on April 15 so he could be rushed to the hospital with the flu. Later that day, his reps confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that he was "fine."

The artist, born Prince Rogers Nelson, released his debut album, For You, in 1978, then solidified his rock star status when his 1979 self-titled album went platinum. He continued his rise to fame in the '80s with hit records including 1999 and Purple Rain. Prince most recently released the albums HITnRUN Phase One and HITnRUN Phase Two in 2015. Up until his hospitalization last week, he had been performing on his Piano & Microphone tour.

Prince has left a unique and everlasting imprint on music, and he will be deeply missed.
