Prince has been given his own day in Minnesota to mark what would have been his 58th birthday.
State Governor Mark Dayton has declared June 7 will be ‘Prince Day’ in Minnesota.
The local hero died from an accidental overdose of the narcotic painkiller Fentanyl on April 21, and fans have been in mourning ever since, but now there’s a big celebration planned.
Issuing his proclamation, Governor Dayton urged Minnesotans to wear something purple to honour the “Purple Rain” singer.
Prince’s birthday will also be marked at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, with a Let’s Go Crazy dance party. The pop superstar was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2004.
