Prince, one of the most creative and iconic musicians in music history, is dead at 57.
Prince’s performances were legendary for his singing style and stunning guitar playing. A musical genius who taught himself piano, guitar, and drums by the time he was fourteen, Prince performed, produced, arranged, and wrote most of his own songs. His songs also became hits for others, “Nothing Compares 2 U” for Sinead O’Connor and “I Feel for You” for Chaka Khan.
Prince’s top hits included “Little Red Corvette,” “When Doves Cry,” “Let’s Go Crazy,” “Kiss,” and “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”. "Little Red Corvette" was one of the first music videos to break MTV's race barrier. He has sold over 100 million records during his prolific career and influenced countless artists and musicians.
The 1984 film and album “Purple Rain” won Prince an Academy Award for best original song and, in 1985, beat out Michael Jackson's "Thriller" for favorite Pop/Rock Album at the American Music Awards. During his career, Prince was nominated for thirty-two Grammys and won seven. He also received a Golden Globe in 2007, the BET Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010, and the Billboard Icon Award in 2013.
In 2004, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by fellow singer Alicia Keys who declared: "There are many kings . . . but there is only one Prince."
