According to multiple news outlets Prince Rogers Nelson was found dead at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota this morning. He was 57.

Last week, Prince’s airplane was forced to make an emergency stop during its flight from Atlanta to Minnesota, and a representative for the singer said he had the flu.

A Minneapolis native, Prince has been heralded as one of the most influential musicians of all time, releasing 39 studio albums over the course of his career and earning the adoration of a legion of fans.

Over on Twitter disbelief swept across the social media network after TMZ initially broke the news of Prince’s passing. Once the Associated Press confirmed Prince’s death, however, disbelief gave way to remembrance.

There will never be another like Prince Rogers Nelson. We were blessed to experience his genius while he was on the Earth.
