We are grieving once again the loss of a superstar. Prince, legendary music artist whose influence spanned 4 decades, has died at age 57.
The singer, songwriter, arranger and instrumentalist broke through in the late 1970s with the hits “Why You Wanna Treat Me So Bad?” and “I Wanna Be Your Lover,” and soared over the following decade with such albums as “1999” and “Purple Rain.” The title song from “1999” includes one of the most widely quoted refrains of popular culture: “Tonight I’m gonna party like it’s 1999.”
He’s sold more than 100 million records and is on Rolling Stone’s list of 100 greatest artists.
Rest In Peace, Prince Rogers Nelson (June 7, 1958 – April 21, 2016)
