On Thursday, April 21, 2016, the R&B/ Pop artist Prince Rogers Nelson, also known as Prince, made his transition from life on Earth to life in eternity. The legacy that Prince left at the age of 57, will be a life that will never be forgotten and always missed. He started his music career at the age of young age of 19 creating his unique sound and image that captured the attention of many. Throughout his very successful entertainment career, Prince made an image for himself that allowed him to be known for his funky style and stellar live performances. The multi instrumentalist released his first album For You in 1978 and his last album Hit n Run Phase 2 in 2015. In total, Prince has sold a number of 150 million records worldwide.
