Artists like Questlove, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry and more shared memories of the late legend online, expressing how, in some cases, his music altered the course of their lives.

Prince was found dead at the age of 57 at his Paisley Park compound earlier today (April 21). The sad news comes less than a week after he was rushed to the hospital following an emergency plane landing in Illinois to be treated for the flu.
