Hollywood is absolutely devastated over hearing the tragic news that Prince has died. The legendary singer tragically passed away at just 57 years old and fellow singers immediately took to Twitter to mourn his death. See what stars are saying to honor his life here.
Prince was tragically found dead in his home at the age of 57 on April 21, and the music community has been absolutely rocked by the devastating news. Twitter has blown up with artists of all genres paying tribute to the late singer, and it’s incredible to see how much of an impact he’s had on the industry.
Little is known about the cause of Prince’s death at this point, but his body was discovered inside his Minnesota home, his publicist confirms. The singer was battling illness for weeks before this tragic fate, and on April 15, he was flying home from a concert in Atlanta, Georgia when his plane made an emergency landing in Illinois because he was feeling so poorly.
At that time, Prince was rushed to the hospital, and it was confirmed that he was battling a severe case of the flu, but he gave a concert over the weekend to prove that he was doing okay. Things clearly took an awful turn, though, as less than a week later, we have lost the “Purple Rain” singer.
News of this absolutely heartbreaking loss spread like wildfire, and other singers have flooded social media with messages of love as they mourn the late legend. See what musicians like Charlie Puth, Phillip Phillips and more are saying on Twitter to pay tribute:
And just like that…the world lost a lot of magic ✨ Rest in peace Prince! Thanks for giving us so much…
