Born Prince Rogers Nelson in Minneapolis on June 7, 1958, the music trailblazer was best known for transgressing genres, fusing rock, pop, funk, R&B, jazz and disco. Simultaneously an explosive rock guitarist, a sinewy singer, and a sensitive and prolific songwriter, the range of Prince’s eclectic musical interests was exceeded only by his influence, and the scores of rockers, R&B singers, rappers and producers who cite him as a primary inspiration are too numerous to name.
The seven-time GRAMMY winner’s rep confirmed the news of his death to ET on Thursday, saying, “It is with profound sadness that I am confirming that the legendary, iconic performer, Prince Rogers Nelson, has died at his Paisley Park residence this morning at the age of 57. There are no further details as to the cause of death at this time.”
The tragic news comes just one week after a private jet carrying the singer was forced to make an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois, where Prince was rushed to a nearby hospital and treated for the flu. A rep for the singer confirmed at the time that Prince had been flown home and was recovering after a brief hospitalization.
However, TMZ reported on Thursday that the reason for the emergency landing was actually because the singer was suffering a drug overdose, and was rushed to the hospital for a “save shot,” typically administered to counteract the effects of opiates.
Authorities found Prince unresponsive in an elevator when they arrived Thursday morning, responding to a 911 call. First responders tried CPR, but were unable to revive the pop star and he was pronounced dead at 10:07 a.m. Prince recently cancelled two shows on his “Piano and a Microphone” tour due to health concerns. Prince scored more than 50 top 40 hits since 1979, including the songs “When Doves Cry,” “1999” and “Raspberry Beret.”
Recently, I came across this video where Prince now a devout Jehovah’s Witness and someone keenly interested in Bible Prophecy exposed the possible reasons and/or conspiracies behind Chem Trails. Given his wide popularity and influence, this may have been the reason that he had to be taken off the scene as quickly as possilble, while making his death appear to be of his own doing.
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
