The artist known as Prince has died abruptly, at the young age of 57.
Multiple sources connected to the 7 time Grammy award winner confirm that he has passed, and TMZ reports that the musician’s body was discovered at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota early Thursday morning. An emergency dispatch call was made from Prince’s estate, calling a “male down, not breathing.”
The singer, who’s 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 then he appeared at a concert the next day to assure his fans he was okay, just battling the flu. At the show, Prince prophetically told the crowd, “Wait a few days before you waste any prayers.” So freaking sad.
