Prince, who is widely remembered as one of the greatest musicians of all time,
passed away six years ago today. With his androgynous style and vocal capabilities,
Prince took the music — and fashion — world by storm as he quickly became a household name.
Born on June 7, 1958 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Prince Rogers Nelson showed
an interest for music early in life when he wrote his first song at just seven years old.
In 1977 at 18 years old, Prince signed on with Warner Bros. Records. At 19,
he became the youngest producer with the label when he produced his debut album,
"For You." He also sang and played all 27 instruments on the album.
Prince's record-breaking sixth studio album, "Purple Rain," was released in June 1984.
