About this item

Prince Rogers Nelsons journey to fame began at age seven, when he wrote his first song. He soon taught himself to play the piano, drums, and guitar. Between signing his first record deal at age 18 and his death in 2016, Prince released 39 studio albums, won seven Grammys, and sold more than 150 million records. Experimenting with style, genre, and society's expectations of him as an African-American performer, Prince defied labels even as he became one of the most iconic figures in American pop culture. Fans around the world mourned his death in 2016, knowing the legend would never again sing, dance, or play guitar for an adoring crowd.
