Sometimes It Snows In April ☔️

One year ago today we lost Prince

“Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
Sometimes I wish life was never ending
And all good things, they say, never last”

Lyrics from the Prince song ‘Sometimes It Snows in April’ that seem fitting today on the one year anniversary of Prince’s death.

Prince died from an accidental drug overdose at his Minneapolis recording studio and estate. He was 57 when he was found alone and unresponsive in an elevator at his Paisley Park (pictured below Paisley Park Memorial) home on April 21. His death shocked fans and led to tributes worldwide.

Today we'll celebrate Prince with his music all day on LG104.3. Watch some legendary Prince performances below and read 5 facts you may not have known about The Purple One.

5 Surprising Facts About Prince

1. HIS REAL NAME WAS PRINCE. Born to two musical parents on June 7, 1958, Prince Rogers Nelson was named after his father's jazz combo.

2. HE WROTE A LOT OF SONGS FOR OTHER ARTISTS. In addition to penning several hundred songs for himself, Prince also composed music for other artists, including "Manic Monday" for the Bangles, "I Feel For You" for Chaka Khan, and "Nothing Compares 2 U" for Sinéad O'Connor.

3. HE SIMULTANEOUSLY HELD THE NUMBER ONE SPOTS FOR FILM, SINGLE, AND ALBUM. During the week of July 27, 1984, Prince's film Purple Rain hit number one at the box office. That same week, the film's soundtrack was the best-selling album and "When Doves Cry" was holding the top spot for singles.

4. HIS SYMBOL ACTUALLY HAD A NAME. Even though the whole world referred to him as either "The Artist" or "The Artist Formerly Known as Prince," that weird symbol Prince used was actually known as "Love Symbol #2." It was copyrighted in 1997, but when Prince's contract with Warner Bros. expired at midnight on December 31, 1999, he announced that he was reclaiming his given name.

5. HE KILLED AN ALBUM RELEASE AFTER "A SPIRITUAL EPIPHANY." In 1987, Prince was due to release "The Black Album." However, mere days before it was scheduled to drop, Prince scrapped the whole thing, calling it "dark and immortal." The musician claimed to have reached this decision following "a spiritual epiphany." Some reports say that it was actually an early experience with drug ecstasy, while others suggested The Artist just knew it would flop.
