Iconic entertainer Prince has died at age 57 today. The singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and actor’s body was found at his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota.

Six days earlier, Prince was rushed to hospital for treatment of flu-like symptoms. The next day, he appeared at a concert and assured fans that he was okay. “Wait a few days before you waste any prayers,” he said.

Prince had been musically prolific recently, releasing two albums a year in both 2014 and 2015 — and he had just signed a deal to write his memoirs.
