Prince has died at age 57, Confirmed by
Publicist; (Nousha Salimi) Associated Press

Prince, born Prince Rogers Nelson, June 7, 1958 in Minneapolis, MN to a father who was a songwriter and a mother who was a jazz singer. Began his music career writing lyrics for his friend
Pepe Willie's band 94 East.

Although, Prince ARRIVED on the scene musically in 1978, I became an even bigger fan when in 1982 he released 1999. And you certainly can't mention Prince without mentioning songs like "Little Red Corvette", "I wanna Be Your Lover" "Raspberry Beret" and "Purple Rain". This list could go on for days, which is exactly why he's a Larger than Life Music Icon. We may possibly never have another artist of his caliber.

Prince will be greatly missed and always celebrated. His Legend will always live on. This day in history, April 21st, 2016 marks the loss of a Larger than life music icon.
