Police responded to a medical emergency at the singer’s Paisley Park estate in Minnesota.
He returned to the public eye in the new millennium, performing with BeyoncĂ© at the 2004 Grammy Awards and winning a Golden Globe two years later for “Song of the Heart” from the animated film “Happy Feet.”
He also performed at halftime of the 2007 Super Bowl, showing off his guitar chops.
Prince was renowned for his series of high-profile musical collaboarations with rumored lovers like Vanity, Sheila E. and Sheena Easton.
