President Barack Obama remembers Prince as a ‘creative icon’

President Barack Obama is lamenting the loss of a “creative icon” with the death of rock superstar Prince.

In a statement, the president called Prince “one of the most gifted and prolific musicians of our time.”

Obama also said “nobody’s spirit was stronger, bolder or more creative” than Prince’s.

The 57-year-old musician was found dead Thursday at his home in a Minneapolis suburb. Sheriff’s deputies say they found Prince unresponsive in an elevator after they were summoned to the scene for a medical call.
