The sad announcement that Prince passed away stunned the world and fan from all over took it to the internet to express their love and heartache for the musician.
At the age of fifty-seven, the American artist had a total of 27 albums enter the UK music charts over the years.
Earlier this month, on 7th April 2016, Prince postponed two performances from his Piano & A Microphone Tour, letting fans know he was “battling the flu.” The artist rescheduled the show for the 14th April, but was still in poor health. On the flight home to Minneapolis, his private jet made an emergency landing in Moline, Illionois, where the singer received medical treatment.
Prince’s tragic death was announced on the 21st April, when he was found unresponsive in an elevator at his Minnesota home. He was pronounced dead at 10:07 a.m. after an paramedics performed CPR, but we are still unaware of the cause of his death.
The New Yorker Magazine will be paying tribute to Prince with their ‘Purple Rain’ issue which comes out next week. The magazine cover by Bob Staake features a purple background and raindrops inspired by one of the artists biggest hits to date.
The music industry has lost a fantastic artist. Prince will truly be missed, but never forgotten!
