Prince broke through in the late 1970s with "Wanna Be Your Lover" and soared with albums "1999" and "Purple Rain." https://t.co/LekzdNoGS7— The Associated Press (@AP) April 21, 2016
The singer — full name Prince Rogers Nelson — had a medical emergency on April 15th that forced his private jet to make an emergency landing in Illinois. But he appeared at a concert the next day to assure his fans he was okay. His people told TMZ he was battling the flu.
Prior to his most recent appearance however, Prince had cancelled two shows due to health concerns.
Prince became an international superstar in 1982 after his breakthrough album “1999.”
He went on to churn out a ton of hits — racking up seven Grammys in the process. He also performed at the Super Bowl in 2007 in one of the greatest live performances of all time.

Jason Kamerud, Carver County chief sheriff's deputy, tells the Minneapolis Star Tribune that the investigation began on Thursday morning.
He said officials are withholding information about the identity of the deceased person until next of kin has been notified. A news release will come afterward.
No confirmation to rumors that Prince has died.
