Prince loved Detroit, and we definitely loved him. Yesterday when the news broke, many people took to Twitter and Instagram to share a story of a Prince concert, their favorite song, or just why they flat out loved the legend.

Many celebrities took to social media to share their remembrance of Prince, too. Here is a roundup of some posts that Michigan based musicians, celebrities, and local personalities shared on Twitter and Instagram.  

He Changed The World!! A True Visionary. What a loss. I'm Devastated.🦄 This is Not A Love Song.
