People Appreciation: What Prince Meant to Music - and an Entire Generation of Fans

21 April 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

In 1984, I was 7 years old , and "When Doves Cry," the song from both the film and album Purple Rain, was a massive radio hit. From the backseat of my parent's station wagon, I listened eagerly, absorbed every word, and sang it verbatim to the teenagers at the local pool. (Much to their delight.) Even at that young age, I knew the lyrics were poignant and kind of heartbreaking - I also knew it was the greatest song I'd ever heard. The same can still be said today.

Prince Has Died at 57

21 April 2016 10:40 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Prince, the iconic musician and worldwide superstar, has died. He was 57.

Prince, born Prince Rogers Nelson, was found dead on Thursday morning at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota. The artist's publicist confirmed his passing, according to The Associated Press.

No cause of death has been released yet, though the musician experienced a medical emergency on April 15 that forced the plane he was traveling on to make an emergency landing. He appeared at a concert the next day, and assured fans that he was alright; his representatives said that he was suffering from the flu.

According to TMZ, before the April 16 concert, Prince also cancelled two previous appearances due to health concerns.

Prince broke onto the music scene in the late 1970s, and became a superstar after the release of his 1982 album "1999." The artist went on to rule the charts throughout the rest of the decade, selling more than 100 million »
