Music lovers breathed a collective sigh of despair April 21 after hearing the news of iconic rule-breaker Prince's death.
The singer, known for innumerable hits including "Kiss," "When Doves Cry," and "Purple Rain," died at his Paisley Park studio in Chanhassen, Minn., according to his publicist. Though the cause of death has not been specified, Prince reportedly had the flu and had been taken to a hospital Friday after his private jet made an emergency landing at Quad City International Airport in Moline, Ill.
Dallas-Fort Worth landmarks paid their respects Thursday night. See how they illuminated the city with his signature color: purple.

Landmarks nationwide also jumped on the purple train, including...

By coincidence, Niagara Falls illuminated purple Thursday in honor of Queen Elizabeth's 90th birthday, according to the Toronto Sun. Many people mistakenly thought it glowed for Prince. It's pretty nonetheless.
