Pop music superstar Prince has been found dead at his home in suburban Minneapolis.
His publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure says the music icon was found dead at his home Thursday in Chanhassen, Minnesota.
The singer, songwriter, arranger and instrumentalist was widely acclaimed as one of the most inventive musicians of his era, drawing upon influences ranging from James Brown to the Beatles to Jimi Hendrix. His hits included "Little Red Corvette," ''Let's Go Crazy" and "When Doves Cry."
The Minneapolis native broke through in the late 1970s with the hits "Wanna Be Your Lover" and soared over the following decade with such albums as "1999" and "Purple Rain."
The title song from "1999" includes one of the most widely quoted refrains of popular culture: "Tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999."
This is video from his last performance in Omaha, which was in 2004 at the Qwest Center Omaha, which is now the CenturyLink Center. It was one of the arena's first big events.
