June 7th Declared Prince Day

Whilst the music world is still coming to grips with the passing of the legend that was Prince, tributes continue to pour in - the latest from the governor of Minnesota, who has officially declared 7th June 'Prince day'. The 7th June 2016 would have marked his 58th birthday.

“Prince was considered a music industry innovator, a mentor, and a humble philanthropist,” adding, “he went on to create revolutionary music and an iconic identity, ” said Mark Dayton, the governor of Minnesota.

On this commemorative day, the state's people are asked to wear purple clothing to remember him by.

The governor also said: He [Prince] “was the creator of ‘The Minneapolis Sound,’ a contribution not only to the global catalogue of music genres, but to Minnesota’s worldwide prominence and its economic growth.”

Prince was born and also had his own music studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
