The Legend of Prince Rogers Nelson
Prince Rogers Nelson was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. As he grew up, Nelson learned multiple musical instruments and began to start his music career. By the age of 17, Nelson would sign his first record deal where he would soon be known around the world as simply Prince. Since his first album, Prince would go on to become a major success in the world of both music and celeb news. Throughout the 80s, 90s, and 00s, Prince became one of the most legendary artists of all time. His musical contributions were a varied mixture of pop, hip hop, RandB, and many other genres.
Tragically, Prince’s career was short as the result of his tragic death on April 21st, 2016. Many of the latest entertainment sources during this time had begun to notice that Prince’s health could be taking a turn for the worse.
