Listen to our tribute to Prince
Prince died on Thursday 21st April 2016 at his Paisley Park recording studio aged 57.
He was an innovative artist who let his music and talent speak for themselves and transcended genres.
Born Prince Rogers Nelson, he was a multi-instrumentalist who began playing the piano and guitar at a very early age and wrote his first song when he was just seven.
He went on to be one of the greatest music icons of all time.
Here we pay tribute to the man, the symbol, the legend.
