BIOGRAPHY:

Prince Rogers Nelson, known by the mononym Prince, was an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and actor.


TRIVIA:
  • The symbol to which Prince changed his name (which is best rendered as ether O{+> or O(+> in normal ASCII characters) originated in and was borrowed by Prince from ancient Europe.
  • During the filming of _Purple Rain (1984)_ (qv), he was told one day by director 'Albert Magnoli' (qv) that the film needed a montage song that dealt heavily on emotions. Prince responded with two songs the very next morning, written, produced and recorded. One of the songs was the smash hit "When Doves Cry".
  • One of the very few musicians who writes, produces and composes all his music himself. On most of his albums, he plays all the instruments himself, except for brass instruments, which he does not play, though he does have a backing band for concerts. His songwriting skills have provided hits for others such as 'Chaka Khan (I)' (qv), 'Sinéad O'Connor' (qv) and 'Jordan Knight' (qv).
  • Performed at the Super Bowl XLI halftime show in Miami, Florida, to a worldwide television audience of 140 million viewers. (4 February 2007).
  • He joins 'Sylvester Stallone' (qv), 'Roberto Benigni' (qv), 'Kevin Costner' (qv), 'William Shatner' (qv) and 'Tom Green (III)' (qv) as being the only actors to direct themselves in performances that would win them a Razzie Award for Worst Actor.
  • His 1984 album "Purple Rain" sold 13 million copies in the United States.
  • A very short man, he often has to wear large shoes on stage so he is not dwarfed by some female singers.
  • Has sold 80 million albums worldwide.
