Music legend Prince has died at the age of 57, his publicist confirmed to The Associated Press.
Sources tell TMZ that his body was found at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota on the morning of Thursday, April 21.
The singer suffered a medical emergency on April 15 that forced his private jet to make an emergency landing in Illinois, but he appeared at a concert the next day to the delight of fans. Prior to this most recent appearance, Prince cancelled two shows due to health issues.
