American singer & songwriter Prince Rogers Nelson was born on 7th June 1958 . He was an multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and actor. He was a musical innovator & known for his eclectic work, flamboyant stage presence, extravagant dress and makeup, and wide vocal range. Prince explored typographical oddities in his song titles and lyrics as another way of evading convention. In 1993 he announced that he had changed his name to a combination of the male and female gender signs—. There is also a strong religious impulse in some of his music, sometimes fused into a kind of sacred erotic experience that has roots in African American churches.

“"Little Red Corvette"” (1983) was Prince’s first big crossover hit, gaining airplay on MTV at a time when virtually no black artists appeared on the influential new medium. Purple Rain (1984) made him one of the major stars of the 1980s and remains his biggest-selling album. Three of its singles were hits: the frenetic “"Let’s Go Crazy,"” the androgynous but vulnerable “"When Doves Cry,"” and the anthemic title cut. Thereafter, he continued to produce inventive music of broad appeal; outside the United States he was particularly popular in Britain and the rest of Europe.
