The world is waking up to the devastating news of the purple Prince’s passing. The 57 year-old was found overnight in his home unconscious. It comes only days after his plane made an emergency landing Moline, Illinois, en route to Minnesota to be admitted into hospital with serious flu symptoms.
The reason for death is not yet known and the reason will likely not be known for another few days while the world waits for the autopsy results.
What we do know though, is that the world has lost yet another incredible unique talent. The revolutionary singer-songwriter was a self-taught multi-instrumentalist who was known for his flamboyant personality and presence on stage. Best known for his album and single ‘Purple Rain’ which kickstarted his career, he released a further incredible 38 studio albums featuring other hits including ‘When Doves Cry’, ‘Kiss’ and ‘Cream’.
He will be joining the likes of David Bowie and Michael Jackson in the skies above, all incredible musicians who have been taken from us at such a young age.
There will be no doubt plenty of Prince tribute parties this coming weekend, to provide the millions of fans to dance away their sadness.
