The flamboyant and influential singer-songwriter Prince has passed at age 57, according to The New York Times. The singer was found at his Paisley Park studio and estate in Minnesota yesterday. In early April, it was reported that Prince was not feeling well, citing the flu, and the singer canceled two concerts in Atlanta. After a concert on April 14, his plane made an emergency landing where he was rushed to the hospital, according to CNN.
With a career spanning more than 35 years, Prince released 39 albums, winning seven Grammy Awards and earning 30 nominations. He won an Oscar for Best Original Song for "Purple Rain." Celebrate his life by reliving one of his best performances and what is considered by many the best Halftime Show: the 2007 NFL Super Bowl XLI Halftime Show featuring Prince, with lighting design by Robert Dickinson and production/set design by Bruce Rodgers. As rain poured down and the Colts hammered in their win over the Bears, Prince rocked the night with an unforgettable performance, concluding, naturally, with "Purple Rain."
