Prince (7 June 1958, Minneapolis, Minn. – 21 April 2016, Chanhassen, Minn.) was an American singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, dancer, actor, and filmmaker.

Prince Rogers Nelson, a guitar virtuoso and multi-instrumentalist known for his genre-crossing work, wide-ranging singing voice, and flamboyant stage appearances, is regarded as one of the greatest musicians in the history of popular music. His innovative music integrated a wide variety of styles, including funk, R&B, rock, new wave, soul, psychedelia, and pop. Prince pioneered the late 1970s Minneapolis sound, a funk rock subgenre drawing from synth-pop and new wave.
