Pop music legend Prince died at age 57 in his Minnesota home on Thursday.

The singer’s publicist confirmed the news to the Associated Press, and said that there are “no further details.” The superstar—one of the most inventive musicians of his era— cancelled shows in Atlanta early April, citing the flu. Prince was touring and recording up until his death, according to the AP. He released four albums in the last 18 months.

Local personalities, athletes, and performers reacted to the news of Prince’s death with shock, sadness, and memories.
