Prince Rogers Nelson (born June 7, 1958), known from 1993 to 2000 as an unpronouncable symbol (or informally,The Artist Formerly Known as Prince, Tafkap, or simply The Artist), is a popular American musician. He had the most massive hit song of 1984 withWhen Doves Cry and is best known for his album and movie Purple Rain.

As for the mega-superstars only Michael Jackson & Madonna were comparable to Prince only in terms of star power. None could match the formidable breadth of his talents, which included not just singing and dancing but also composing, producing, and playing instruments (not to mention directing videos and movies). In fact, Prince played nearly all the instrumentson his first five albums, and has produced himself since signing with Warner Bros. at age 21 (Rolling Stone).

His music has spanned myriad styles; from his early material, rooted in funk and soul, he has constantly expanded his musical palette throughout his career, absorbing many other genres including new wave, pop, rock, blues, jazz and hip hop. Born in Minneapolis, he has based his entire career in Minnesota. He now resides in Los Angeles. « hide
