President Barack Obama Releases Statement on Prince's Death

President Barack Obama is remembering the late Prince.

The 52-year-old Commander in Chief released a statement following the news of the music legend’s death, whom he called a “creative icon.”

“Few artists have influenced the sound and trajectory of popular music more distinctly, or touched quite so many people with their talent,” Obama said. “As one of the most gifted and prolific musicians of our time, Prince did it all. Funk. R&B. Rock and roll. He was a virtuoso instrumentalist, a brilliant bandleader, and an electrifying performer.”
