“Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today, to get through this thing called life.” – Prince
Prince has died. He was 57 years old.
The news was first reported by TMZ. According to TMZ, the musician’s body was discovered at his Paisley Park Estate early Thursday morning. A cause of death is not yet known.
Last week, Prince’s private plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois and he was taken to the hospital. It was later revealed that Prince had been suffering from flu-like symptoms.
