Prince

Prince was born Prince Rogers Nelson on June 7, 1958, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Prince was one of the most naturally gifted artists of all time, and also one of the most mysterious.  No other pop star could match the range of his talents, which included not just singing and dancing but also composing, producing, and playing many, many instruments. In fact, Prince played nearly all the instruments on his first five albums, and has produced himself since signing with Warner Bros. at age 21.

Prince’s early music career saw the release of PrinceDirty Mind and Controversy—all of which created controversy due to their fusion of religious and sexual themes. However, Prince achieved superstar fame in the 1980s with ‘1999’ and ‘Purple Rain,’ the latter album also serving as the soundtrack for the popular film of the same name.  He went on to win 7 Grammy Awards inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Prince married backup singer and dancer Mayte Garcia on Valentine’s Day in 1996. The couple had a son, who was born on October 16, 1996 and tragically died a week later from Pfeiffer Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder. Prince and Garcia’s marriage was annulled in 1999 and they were divorced in 2000.

Prince was extremely private about his personal life, and he preferred to spend time at his Paisley Park compound, away from the celebrity spotlight.  He died on April 21, 2016.
