It is with a heavy heart that we have learned of the sudden death of another music icon, Prince. According to reports, the multi-talented legendary artist was found dead at his estate earlier today at the age of 57 years old.

We are keeping his loved ones in our prayers during this time.

Although he has been able to make appearances at awards shows, and has been touring for decades, “His Royal Badness” had to cancel two shows earlier this year due to his health issues. While he never reportedly had any major illness, his symptoms seemed to be too intense to be able to make the two shows.
