Prince has died at the age of 57. On Thursday, medical personnel were seen attending his Minnesota home/compound, and TMZ reported that they had confirmation from "multiple sources" the singer was found dead inside.

The news comes just days after Prince's jet had to make an emergency landing when the singer was experiencing a severe illness on April 15. He appeared in concert the next night to assuage fans' fears, but canceled two upcoming tour dates.

Still, the singer's death comes as an unexpected blow for music fans. He remained active right up until the end, working, touring, and recording.
