Prince would have turned 58 today!

To celebrate, the state of Minnesota along with Governor Mark Dayton declared June 7 “Prince Day.”

The Gov. described the star as the creator of “Minneapolis sound” which contributed “to Minnesota’s worldwide prominence and its economic growth.”

The AP reports that Minnesotans are encouraged to wear purple in honor of the late musician, who died in his home in April from an accidental fentanyl overdose.
