Once again, tragedy strikes the music world. The beloved artist, ‘who will forever be known as‘ PRINCE, said farewell not only to his fans, but also to the world.
On Thursday morning, April 21, 2016, the Carver Police Department received a 911 call stating that the music artist, PRINCE, was found in the elevator at his home and studio in Paisley Park. He was reported as being unresponsive and in need of immediate medical attention.
Unfortunately, when authorities arrived, EMS had done everything they could. PRINCE ROGERS NELSON was pronounced dead at 10:07 am. Although numerous sources have reported several possibilities as to the cause of the musicians death, at this point they all seem to be nothing but hearsay and speculation.
PRINCE was considered by some, to have been a musical genius, as he effortlessly learned to play multiple instruments, totaling twenty-two in all. His music had a way of touching the soul and seemed to transcend both time and space. He was best known for songs such as, “Little Red Corvette“, “1999“, “Raspberry Barret“, “Sexy Muther Fucker“, and of course, his cult classic movie, “Purple Rain“. He showed the rock world just what an amazing guitarist he really was, at his Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame induction. During a tribute to George Harrison, he shredded a phenomenal two minute solo out during the performance of Beatles’ song, * “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”. He was adorned by many fans for his suave, sensual demeanor and his passionate music. He was serious about religion, and cared deeply about his spirituality.
Although a very private man in life, PRINCE said his final goodbyes in the most extravagant outpouring of majestic color imaginable. Within hours after the performers death, a beautiful rainbow appeared directly above his home in Paisley Park. David Bowie also had a rainbow appear within the first 24 hours after his death. Condolences and deepest sympathies go out to his friends and family.
May he forever be smiling in the Purple Rain. 💜💜💜💜💜 *Click above to watch R&R Hall of Fame solo. 😊
