Singer Prince dead at 57

Prince

It’s a sad day in the music world. News is spreading across the global at the sudden passing of the legendary singer, Prince. The star was 57.

TMZ is reporting that several sources connected to the star have confirmed that he was found dead at his home in Minnesota this morning. No word on what the cause of death is at this point, but investigations are most certainly underway to establish what went wrong. Earlier in the week, the star’s private jet was forced to make an emergency landing, following a medical emergency. His reps later told the site he was battling with flu, but he returned to the stage the next day.

This is such terribly sad news. My heartfelt condolences go out to his loved ones during this time.
