WHAT: Prince Rogers Nelson, the musical superstar known better simply as Prince, was one of the best-selling musicians of all time. He was a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, who had won seven Grammy awards, a Golden Globe, and an Academy Award. His provocative and sexually explicit lyrics, along with the eclectic combinations of styles he created by melding rock and R&B, jazz and funk, hip-hop and disco into a highly listenable and danceable mélange, brought him a worldwide loyal following.
Prince is a pop icon sensation, leaving behind a catalog including huge smash hits like “Purple Rain,” “Kiss” and “When Doves Cry.” The Purple One has claimed 47 entries on the Billboard Hot 100, including 19 top 10s – with five of those going all the way to Number 1. Between 1980 and 1999, Prince charted more Hot 100 entries (44) than any other act.
