Prince, one of the most inventive and influential musicians of modern times, was found dead at his home on Thursday in suburban Minneapolis. He was 57.
Prayers, as well as tributes from grief-stricken fans have poured out online—including some from the faith community.
“Been a prince fan since day one. Played every instrument, and stood up for owning his own music. Huge loss today,” wrote gospel composer Kirk Franklin on Twitter.
Prince’s publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, confirmed the news that he “died at his Paisley Park. The local sheriff said deputies found Prince unresponsive in an elevator late Thursday morning after being summoned to his home, but that first-responders couldn’t revive him.
No details about what may have caused his death have been released, reports Associated Press. Prince postponed a concert in Atlanta on April 7, after falling ill with the flu, and he apologized to fans during a makeup concert last week.
