It is the most tragic news ever. One of my all-time favourite singers, a musical icon and a pop culture legend, Prince was found dead in Paisley Park, reports Billboard.com. His publicist confirmed that the 57-year-old musician died at his Paisley Park home and studio. It is reported he was hospitalised last week for a bad case of the flu. The legendary singer released one of the most iconic albums of the century, Purple Rain, in 1984. over his career Prince has released 39 solo albums. I am devastated. The Purple Rain will flow for you Prince.
